no. can you create a pointer property in the server class to this class ?
Thanks Bill. I'm not sure if that will work in this case. I was going to use it for passing a user-name and encrypted string password so I can run a query against the master DB on SQL Servers to get configuration data to be used in a compliance template. Unless there is a way to add it to the server class and make it a hidden property. I couldn't really think of another way to accomplish this.
Why do you want to make it hidden ? you should be able to restrict access to the instances that have the values in the custom class.

As Bill stated, you can do this by referencing a custom property class as a server class property.
1. I created a custom class called Test, added a property of the encrypted string type named PASSWORD.
2. I created a server property called MyTest pointing to the custom property class Test.
3. I created an instance of the custom Test property class, and set a PASSWORD.
4. I created a simple centrally executed EO that does this command:
and set it to windows.ini grammar.
When I execute it, it returns VAL as the name, and the decrypted password as the value.
Thanks Yanick! I just tested that and it works. I will reference the property this way.
For some reason I wasn't thinking that I could restrict access to the custom property instances. I changed the permissions on the instance and this will work great! Thanks again for your help!
