About This File

This RAWSQL monitor uses data from the Active Directory Plugin to check for active AD Computer Accounts with a Windows OS that have recent logon times, and that do not have an Automate Agent installed. This is helpful to identify computers that were joined to the domain without the proper procedure, or computers that your agent deployment has not succeeded in reaching. The alert will be targeted against a probe computer for each client, you will need to read the alert body (or subject) to find out the name of the computer without an agent. Because the alerting is "Probe" centric, be aware of the following:

If you enable group targeting, and your targeting excludes the probe computer for a client, no machines will be reported for that client.
If you have no probe at any location for a client, no machines will be reported for that client.
If you Exclude or Ignore the "computer", you are really excluding the Probe Computer, and if you do this no machines will be reported for that client.
There is no simple way to Whitelist machines that do not have an agent installed on purpose. You will just have to live with them being reported.

To Import: In Control Center, open Tools -> Import -> SQL File. (System->General->Import->SQL File in Automate 12) Select the file, and you should be asked to import 2 statements. (Cancel if it tells you a different number). The Monitor will be named "Domain Computer Without Automate Agent", and it should run every 6 hours.

What's New in Version 3.0   See changelog

Released

Big Fixes!

  • In my testing, query is about 10x faster than the previous version!
  • Computers can now be ignored by updating the description in Active Directory, no need to hardcode exceptions for computers that are intentionally ignored.
  • Easily modifiable Major.Minor version check to ignore specific Windows versions (XP/2003).
  • Correctly associates computers in child domains to the correct domain controller (prevents computers in a child domain from reporting as missing from the root domain).
  • Correctly associates missing computers to domain controller that reported them (resolves a potential issue when two clients have identically named domains).
  • Associates alerts to the DC that reported information, not just a random Probe or Server computer. (Before the lowest server ID was used).
  • Thanks 1
