Computer Conditions

These conditions target individual computers or groups of computers using various identifiers. Actions can be applied to a computer regardless of who is using it. The Environment Manager agent checks the specified criteria against that of the managed computer and applies any associated conditions to the computer or group of computers.

LSA support is not available on Computer conditions.

Condition Description Computer Trigger User Trigger
Is Laptop A condition to check if the endpoint is a laptop. The agent checks the endpoint for a battery. If one exists, any laptop specific actions are performed. Yes Yes
Computer Name A condition for a specific computer. The computer name can be entered directly or searched for using specified criteria on selected locations. Yes Yes
Computer Domain A condition for a defined network of computers. Use the Name Resolution Type drop-down to specify whether the condition uses the DNS Domain or Windows Domain naming conventions. The domain entered in the Match field must be in the format used in your organization for the selected naming convention. For example, a DNS domain name could be testing.xyz.local whereas the Windows domain name would just be testing. Yes Yes
Computer NETBIOS Name A condition for a computer identified by its NETBIOS name. Yes Yes
Computer Group A condition based on a user group for a particular computer. The agent checks the specified active directory group or groups exist and compares the Security Identifier (SID) against the SID of the user’s computer for a match. The condition only matches computers in the specified group - to include nested groups, select the Search nested groups checkbox. Yes Yes
Computer IP Address A condition based on an IP address entered into the IP Address1 field. A range of IP addresses can be defined using the Between radio button and IP Address 2 field.

For ranges, the IP address is not treated as a whole number but based upon the value of each octet. For example, if the range was from 190.190.190.190 to 200.200.200.200, 198.198.198.198 would pass but 198.198.210.198 would not as the third octet is not within the set range.

Yes Yes
MAC Address A condition defined by the Media Access Control (MAC) address of the network cards within a computer. Yes Yes
Computer Process Name A condition to specify a process. Enter, browse or use a regular expression to target the executable for the process you want to create actions for. This can only be used in Computer Process Started and Process Stopped triggers. No No
Operating System A condition that applies actions only when the specified operating system is matched. The operating system can be further defined to version, service pack, build number, edition, CPU architecture and Terminal Services enabled.
The Version text box provides a drop-down to select the operating system version. It also supports free text, allowing you to enter any RTM number. For example, if you wanted to specify Windows 8, enter the RTM number - 6.2.9200.
For Build Number, select a condition, such as Greater than or Equal to in the drop-down, then enter a build number in the field. You cannot include a dot character(.) in the build number. If the build number is 10240.17113, for example, you enter 10240. To ensure you have the correct build number, you can check the relevant Microsoft release information. For example, to view build numbers for Windows 10 releases, go to https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/release-info.
Yes Yes
Is VDI A condition which applies actions only when the endpoint is one of the following virtual desktops:
  • Xen Desktop 5
  • Xen Desktop 7
  • VMware view
  • Quest vWorkspace
Yes Yes
