Technical Disruptions Emerging in 2020

This year a broad range of emerging technologies will become a tangible part of the broader IT and business dialogue. Here we’ll take a look at long-term disruptions that will be real enough to matter in thinking through the future but possibly not real enough yet to change the market immediately. What all of these share are the potential to dramatically change IT system and industry thinking as well as the world’s technical capability. The “vacuum tube” era of Quantum computing begins.

Assign value without running on computer

I need a solution

I have 2 run script tasks that uses command script as the script type. Both uses unmanaged tokens. I feed the value from task to another. 

The command I use for one of them is just:

SET ListOfUsers="%!Users!%"
IF DEFINED ListOfUsers(
	ECHO %ListOfUsers%
)

That task runs on the computer, but it doesn’t need to. Is there another way to I put in my info and not have it run on the computer where it is being pushed? That info is being feed to another task that will have to run on the computer it is being pushed to. Thanks.

    Refine the ITA Add Remove Programs Search Report?

    I need a solution

    There’s an IT Analytics report for Add/Remove Programs which is nice because it also lists computer names.  However, it appears the Names don’t match what someone would normally see in their Programs & Features as well as including what looks like hidden applications.  Is there any way to generate a report where the product names are exactly as shown in a workstation’s Add/Remove Programs applet without all of the hidden stuff along with the associated computer names?

    REST API call – PATCH /sepm/api/v1/computers

    I need a solution

    Hi All,

    Currently trying to use the REST API to move computers between groups.

    I’ve been able to use /api/v1/identity/authenticate to generate a user token and /api/v1/groups/{groupid}/computers to get a list of all computers in a group with no issues.

    However, when I use PATCH /sepm/api/v1/computers I get the following error:

    {
        "errorCode": "400",
        "appErrorCode": "",
        "errorMessage": "Duplicate hardware keys found: [null,                                 ]."
    }

    The JSON payload is formatted as shown below:

    [
                   {
                  "group": {
                                 "id": "3B5ECBA80A6F07386A1448D71ED26BA2"
                  },
                  "hardwareKey": "9692AC780717CDB725D101BEE5FD4066"
                  }
    ]

    The provided group ID is the destination group and the hardwareKey is for the client I wish to move.

    I was able to reproduce the error in both PowerShell and Postman. PowerShell script used was from the example scripts provided in the link below:

    computer rename and rejoin to domain

    I need a solution

    I am having an issue when computers on our domain need to be renamed. When a computer is renamed it does not automatically change the device name in the Symantec Management Portal, Which makes it extremely difficult to manage when you have over 800 computers. I’ve seen where the alias name will change but not the device name. I can’t actually see the alias name unless I click on the device details. This would be very difficult to go through 800 computers one by one checking this. I was told that there is no way for the device name to automatically update when a computer is renamed. 

    I also see many duplicate entries of computer names in the management portal, Some secure and some inactive.
