Avalanche: How to report the name of the device with an avalanche package

Version 1

    Environment:

    CE 6.0 device

    What does this package do:

    • Will report the device name as seen in the System Properties Page
    • Will warmboot your device after downloading the package

    Results:

    In your device properties, you will have a property group "Reg" and the value will be the Device Name.

    You can use this as a column header in the device inventory if you want to report on your devices this way:

     

    Logic within the _RegProps.prf (which is main part of the package):

    # Wavelink property file.
    reg.prop.count=1
    reg.prop.0=Reg.Name
    reg.prop.Reg.Name.key=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\Ident
    reg.prop.Reg.Name.name=Name
    

     

    NOTE: It's important that there are no blank lines or else your script might not work
