I Recently upgraded to 9.5.3 from 9.2.4 and found that the the BesComputerRemover tool no longer is supported. Previously i used a sheduled task to automate the removal of systems via powershell and the BesComputerRemover tool. Now, the functionality of the new method falls a bit short of automating the removal of dead or decommissioned servers. Is there a way to use powershell to initiate the admin tool without the GUI requesting the password for the Master Deployment Account? I have not found anything in the additional administion commands
What i am hoping to do is create a scheduled task that does the following set of actions.
Copy and Rename an archived report from .\LastRunReports that has a list of servers that have not reported in X Days:
> Copy-Item "D:\Program Files (x86)\BigFix Enterprise\BES Server\BESReportsData\ArchiveData\LastRunReports\1.dat" "C:\AWS_Related\awscomputers.txt" -force
Initiate the BESAdmin tool with the following command line:
> "D:\Program Files (x86)\BigFix Enterprise\BES Server\BESAdmin.exe" /run /removecomputersfile="C:\BigFix_Working_Dir\awscomputers.txt"
Any Assistance with this would be greatly appreciated.
