Is there a way to find out when a system first reported into the server?

    same problem, it does not show the time the image was dropped, just the installed date

    We don't have a property like that unfortunately. If there is a Fixlet that is always relevant on all machines, I could give you a web report that shows the first time that Fixlet became relevant, which would be right around when the client first reported in. This would only work in web reports.

    If that won't work, like Jason did, I think you'll need to find something on the image that gets a time stamp around when the machine first comes alive and we can create a property to report that time.

    Alternatively, I don't know how you do your imaging, but would it be possible to write a registry key as part of the imaging/building process?

    In BES 8.0 there will be a new property for registry keys: last write time of <registry key> . We should be able to use this to create an install time property.

    Hi Guys,

    How can we find out when a system first reported into the server? or when Agent was first installed on the machine.

    See this analysis:  http://bigfix.me/analysis/details/2994644

     

    minimum of subscribe times of sites )

     

    This should correspond to the time at which the client first subscribed to the actionsite, which would be very shortly after client installation if things are working properly.
