This Windows fileset populates FileWave's custom string fields with extra data outside of the built-in inventory items. The utility in this fileset reads a configuration file named fields.ini that tells it which custom string info field to write its data to. The fileset is configured to update the custom string info field data with each verification. The following info is available.
FirmwareType - Firmware mode of the PC. Returns either UEFI or Legacy.
AssetTag - Asset tag as entered into PC BIOS or firmware. Reports "No Asset Tag" if blank.
ComputerSerial - The PC computer serial number or service tag.
BootDuration - How long it takes the computer to boot in min:sec format.
LastBootUpTime - Date and time when the computer was last booted in YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM format.
FirewallEnabled - CSV list of network types that the Windows firewall is enabled for.
SMARTFailure - CSV list of drives that have failed/are about to fail. Returns "All drives OK" if there are no issues.
LocalAdmins - CSV list of accounts and groups in the local Administrators group.
AttachedUSBDrives - CSV list of attached USB drives. Returns "No USB Drives" if there are none.
Printers - CSV list of printers. Returns "No Printers" if there are none.
FlashVersion - Flash version installed. Returns "No Flash" if Flash is not installed.
JavaVersion - Java Version installed. Returns "No Java" if Java is not installed.
PercentChargedCapacity - % of original battery capacity when battery is fully charged. Returns "No Battery" for laptops with no battery and desktops.
BootDriveBitlockerStatus - Bitlocker encryption status for boot drive. Reports "Encrypted", "Unencrypted", or "Unknown" if the status can't be determined.
Paired with scheduled reports this could be a great way to find devices with extreme boot durations, failing hard disks, disabled firewalls, or attached USB drives. Some of these custom fields rely on WMI so they may not function correctly if WMI is hosed on your PC. Usage instructions are provided within the attached zip file. No support is provided so use at your own risk.

Fileset for Windows custom fields
01 Sep 2017 19:07 #2682
Sorry, I had a drive crash late last year so I don't have the source code for it anymore. The new client-side script custom fields are probably more appropriate for something like this. I believe the script was returning the results from a "manage-bde -status c:" command. More info on manage-bde can be found here -
