We are migrating from Novell Zenworks to Landesk. In the Zenworks world, we can associate applications to users, in the Landesk world its not quite the same. Although you can assign a distribution/scheduled task to the primary owner or ldap group, it doesnt mean that the primary owner is the currently logged in user.
I would like to emulate that behavior so that the applications that I assign to a user, will be available to the user no matter which workstation they log into (regardless wether they are the primary owner or not).
All of our users receive access rights to an application folder (that exists on a network share) only after their user account has been placed in the associated application group. Therefore, if a user can’t see a file in a specific application folder (lets say Adobe Photoshop) then it can be determined that the user is not in the application group and therefore should not have the application available to them.
I need to be able to run a query on all workstations that can check if a specific file can be seen within an application folder (that exists on a network share). This needs to run as the logged in user in order to verify that the user has these rights and not the workstation. The results should be a list of workstations where the currently logged in user can see a specific file that exists on a network share.
In order to emulate the "Zenworks Like" behavior, I would create a scheduled task and target the query of users that can see a file in the Adobe Photoshop network share.
Anyone know of a way I can generate this type of query?
