I need to be able to create a managed workstation with powershell. When we do this manually, the process requires that we have a GUID or UUID to identify the workstation. I am soooo confused. I’ve found at least 3 different ways to get GUIDs along with 3 different GUIDs to match. The one that works is the one we look up in a manual process. What I am searching for is:
- which command creates a managed workstation?
- how do I get the “real” GUID of the workstation that we want to manage (via powershell)?
The commands that retrieve the wrong number:
The manual process is quite the procedure. However, this is the one procedure that gets me the correct GUID for the workstation that will work when creating a managed workstation. It goes like this:
Connect again (root\cimv2)
Click on the Enum classes button .
Scroll down and find win32_ComputerSystemProduct and double click it
In top window you will find the UUID entry
If anyone can shed some light on how to do this, I will be very appreciative. I would also be appreciative of any terms that might help me search google. “Managed workstation” is too vague a phrase using too common words. It’s not turning up much. Thanks for your help.
