UPDATE 2010-09-14: Dell have changed the layout to add an extra field in the contracts section so the scripts are broken
UPDATE 2010-07-09: I’ve noticed this page is getting a lot of hits, I haven’t had a chance to get this working yet so if anyone does please post a comment or drop me a mail using the contact page. I’ll try and get some time next week to look at it again.
These scripts are a work in progress and you should check back regularly for updates until I mark them as final.
This is an updated version of the “SCCM Get Dell warranty info“
Basically the problem with the other script is that a user with admin privs must run it or the computer account must have access to the internet.
I have split the script in 2 and rejigged it slightly so that now 1 (user) script is run “When user is logged on with the users privliges” and the other (system) script is run 2nd “When user is logged on with administrative privliges”. You can use the “Run another program 1st” option in the program definition which should make it practically act like a single script.
