Hi

I need to search for an NTFS folder by the name of 'ABC' on all the workstations ( XP/Vista/Windows 7) connected to my 2003 AD domain and output the results on a shared drive.

I have SCCM 2012 but can't find any option to search for folder name string using local machine agents.

A script run via GPO seems like an option? Pls advise!!

As a very simply Methode, you could create a Batch file like this

dir /s ABC > C:\searchresult_%computername%.txt
xcopy C:\searchresult_%computername%.txt \\server\share

Open in new window


Execute it as a package via SCCM on all Clients and make sure the the user or computeraccount executing the script on the Clients has access to copy the file to the Folder \\server\share

Hi,

As per this the Search Folder feaure is removed in SCCM 2012.

Is there a way to recursively search thru SCCM 2012 collection folders?

Hope that helps too :)
