Has anyone implemented an efficient way of targetting baselines at devices that have been recently reimaged?
I had a client setting defined in the donor image that signified that a machine was a fresh deployment, but this only applies if the device has been deployed by the bare metal server. If a device is "reimaged" through IEM actions, it retains all of it's client settings throughout the process, ignoring any settings that have been defined within the image; In other words, if a device is "reimaged" through IEM actions, it doesn't appear to be a completely fresh image.
It would be nice to target a baseline at devices that have been newly deployed for two reasons:
- It may be necessary for a post-imaging baseline to be processed before any other baselines or actions - e.g. applying IEM client/relay settings;
- It may be necessary for components in a post-imaging baseline to only apply to newly deployed devices, regardless of whether the baseline/components may be relevant to any other device.
