you could try the like operator with the _.

so something like this

SELECT * FROM Win32_ComputerSystem Where Caption LIKE "___________L%"

the _ matches exactly one character so that would be 11 _'s and the character you are looking for the % sign will match the rest of the name if it is longer then 12.

Not sure if that is what you were looking for.

 Hello Everyone, I need to create a WMI Filter that will look past the first 11 charactor in the computer name then triggers on the 12 charactor.

something like
Select * FROM WIn32_ComputerSystem WHERE CAPTION = '%computername%' AND '%L%"

If something like the above doesn't work, is it possible to code a WMI Query that used the right function to count 11 charactors to the right and trigger on the 12 letter that it finds?

Thanks

Norm-

Did you write this or is this a MS ADM? Also I noticed that this is meant for Vista? Are you loading this into a GPO that is being viewed on a Vista machine? If so, then its going to be under the Classic Adm. Templates node.

Darren,

 

Here is the ADM text from the desktopsearch30.adm. Sorry, Jamie. I unchecked the setting and I still don't see the DisableDownloadSearchPrompt Setting.

 

Thanks,

However, This policy will not prevent IFilters or Protocol Handlers from being installed, nor will it prevent them from being used by other applications or services. \nYou can also specify an allow list of add-ins by providing the classID or ProgId string. For example, if you plan to deploy a particular ifilter, make sure that this ifilter is on the allow list, either as a GUID such as "{xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx}" (include the braces) or a ProgID such as "VisFilter.CFilter.1".\n\nIf you maintain a locked desktop environment, this setting is redundant because non-administrative users do not have permission to install new components. If your users have Administrator permissions or can install software, this policy prevents them from specifically using Windows Desktop Search-related add-ins.\n\nNote: Because of a limitation in the Group Policy editor, you must add at least one entry in the allow list. You must have at least one entry, even if you want to enable this policy without an allow list. Create a list entry by putting a space in the name field and a space in the value field and then save it. This will create a placeholder entry that is ignored by the program."

If you enable and then disable this policy, the user's original list is restored.\n\nIf you want to specify an initial default list of excluded file types that users can change later, see the administration guide for information about how to set up the initial machine preference."

Hi Jamie,

 

Thanks for the response. I looked and it is checked. However, I am not seeing the DisableDownloadSearchPrompt setting.

When in the administrative templates node of the Group Policy Editor, you must select View > Filtering and uncheck the "only show policy settings that can be fully managed" checkbox.

I have found the registry entry to turn off the prompt, but I would prefer to push this out with group policy. I have added the desktopsearch30.adm and I don't see the setting anywhere. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Norm
