    Add windows activation status to Inventory

    jriv Rookie

      Hello,

       

      Does anyone have a way to query Windows activation status? I'm guessing it has to be added to Inventory through Custom Data but I can't seem to find a way to get the data from the registry or through WMI (and into Ivanti).

       

      Thanks!

          You'll need to do some investigating into "how to figure out the activation status" ... it MIGHT be possible as a return of the SLUI type command-line tool for activation perhaps, or some such. I'm pretty sure there's bound to be "some way" for Windows to cough up "yes I am / no I am not activated".

           

          Once that's known, script the relevant running / gathering, and throw the result into a simple registry value which you can then pick up as Custom Data as per normal.

           

          So in essence:

          • Script "running the command" + "massaging the output" (it may be "less than friendly") into something useful.
          • Inject result into registry key.
          • Pull registry key as normal with the inventory scanner as  a piece of custom data.
          • Win.

           

          But yeah ... I personally don't know (/haven't need to) find out whether a device is activated yet or not. Google-fu not being helpful (I'd be surprised if you'd be the first person in need of this snippet of info) ?
