    Define more intrinsic properties

      Hello all,


      I want to add more properties for Windows for example ProgramFiles, Userdomain, HOMEPATH ....


      There's a way to create them as intrinsic properties and as for WINDIR prop. make them automatically completable when a new system is added to application server?

          You can't make them intrinsic, but you can make them required. However, I assume you want to ensure that these are set correctly and not just filled in because it's a required field.


          It really comes down to your server enrollment process. A lot of times I've worked with clients to create NSH scripts that will make BLCLI calls to add a server into the environment and set a bunch of properties just like you are asking about. If you enforce server enrollment through such a script using RBAC, you can ensure that these properties are getting set for all new servers that you add to Config Manager.

            you can also schedule an additional 'property update' script to run periodically to update these things.


            i would also submit an enhancement request for this functionality.
