    servers targeted with ldap query

    VHARNUM Apprentice

      Is there any way to prevent servers from getting targeted in scheduled tasks via a ldap query?  Cant find anything on this and it's becoming an issue.  Software is getting deployed to servers because we have users targeted and they are logging in on servers. ie/ computer support staff and this also affects citrix servers.

       

      Any advice?  currently LANDesk version 2016 sp3

       

      Thanks

          Hey Val,

           

          Instead of targeting an LDAP query, try building a query that looks for LDAP - Primary owner and excludes any machine Types that are not Servers. Below is an example of such a query:

          This example should pull any devices that have reported Chris Casity as being the last logged in user and are not Servers or Virtual Servers.

           

          Please let me know if that works in your situation.

           

          Thanks,

            Hi Chris,

             

            Actually... great idea except to use:

             

            This way accounts can manage who gets software by group membership.

             

            Unfortunately it will require a scan after users are added to groups and wont update every hour like our directory ldap queries but worth the change for sure.

             

            Thanks

            Val

              Hello Val,

               

              Thank you for taking the time to share your results. Hopefully your more robust query will help other customers if they have the same question.

               

              Have a great day!
