    Exlude hosts with specific attributes from Remediation

      Hi,

       

      To avoid creating 100's of smart groups (effectively 1 per remediation job)  is there a way to check a servers property, or a substring of say the host name, before applying a remediation job ?

       

      ie I have a job that checks timesync period etc. on Windows, if not set to value x it changes it and restarts the service.  I want to exclude servers that are part of a cluster as this can affect the cluster heartbeat.  The host can be identified as a cluster node from its host name.

       

      So;

       

      Check Server Properties -> (If Cint(right(hostname,8)) > 0) -> Apply remediation rule.

       

      Can this be done ?  Essentially, a pre remediation rule check on a failed compliance target.

       

      Thanks,
