Systems Management Question
Matching Hardware Assets with a User
08/17/2016 1254 views
We have been on-boarding a number of global employees for our organization who we never managed their computers before. Internally in our office we've always had a naming scheme and with active directory assets are associated with a user in Kace by default. However, we are providing users with an AD account, but their computers are not domain joined and usernames and machine names are not being standardized. I realize there is some work with whatever we decide, but wondered if anyone had ideas on how we could associate name with an asset. I was thinking of trying to run a script to pull the name of an Outlook .ost file and computer name, which would give us their company email address and computer name, but I'm not familiar with scripting like that. Does anyone else have thoughts?
