I'm pretty new to systems director (our server went live a few weeks ago) and i'm trying to get a custom report out of it...
I've set up a bunch of static and dynamic groups based on our server types/functions (eg reporting, batch, who manages them, etc)
what i'm trying to now get out of them is a custom list of what processes are running on a server and what version of the program it is.
in the "view and collect inventory" section i've got a traget systems group of servers, but when i go to "manage profiles" there doesnt seem to be a way to set up a custom list.
I'm not bothered about which windows patches are installed, or other stuff like that, what i need is to set a list of possible apps running eg:
(or in the case of linux servers)
and so on. then if a server has that application installed (and running) on a machine, for it to report the executable name, version, datestamp and a few other bits.
then i want to be able to apply this to a group of servers (target systems) and output to csv/html/etc like you can by selecting something like the "basic windows info" option in "view by" and then "export all"
does that make sense?
is it possible? i've spent the last two days trying to figure out how to do this... it's for a report we want to run every few months to identify servers running old versions of the custom applications running...
as implied, these are custom apps, and dont have installers or anything, they are just executables stored on the disk and run via a startup script at boot. at the moment, the only custom app that DOES show up in the "installed software" inventory list is registered as a service
