  1. The following Event ID's from the Security log should help get you started: 4634, An account was logged off. 4647, User initiated logoff 4624, An account was successfully logged on 4800, The workstation was locked 4801, The workstation was unlocked 4802, The screen saver was invoked 4803, The screen saver was dismissed This article explains how to use the Event ID's to create Notifications: https://intercom.help/pulseway/windows-agent-configuration/windows-event-log-monitoring/how-to-configure-the-windows-event-log-monitoring Also, several things on your list are already included as built-in Notifications: For the other events, Google is your friend. And before someone complains that I'm answering a 2 year old post, I'm just trying to be helpful. Maybe someone will have the same question and then they'll have the answer.
  2. Any chance support could be added for XCP-NG - the open-source fork of Citrix XenServer? I can add one to the Server Manager, and connection tests OK, but it does not show up in the mobile app. EDIT: I figured it out. I forgot about the Policy and that I need to enable XenServer support in the Policy first. Then it showed up in the mobile app.
  3. Try using the full path to choco.exe in your scripts, like this: @ECHO OFF IF EXIST C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\choco.exe ( C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\choco.exe install curl --no-progress -y ) ELSE (ECHO Chocolatey is not installed - Aborting!) Exit 0;
  4. Try running your script like this: start C:\Windows\System32\notepad.exe That should launch the app on the agent Desktop.
  5. Enable the Windows built-in local Administrator account and set a password. Also, hide the account from Login Screen, using the registry. net user administrator /active:yes net user administrator YourPasswordHere reg add "HKEY_Local_Machine\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList" /v Administrator /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f exit 0;
  6. Here is a script I use to implement a registry change to the HKCU hive: @ECHO OFF IF NOT EXIST C:\Support\WriteToHkcuFromSystem.ps1 ( C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\bin\wget.exe -c -nc -nH -nv --no-check-certificate https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/Write-to-HKCU-from-the-3eac1692/file/199836/1/WriteToHkcuFromSystem.ps1 -O C:\Support\WriteToHkcuFromSystem.ps1 ) IF NOT EXIST C:\Support\FoxitPDF.reg ( C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\bin\wget.exe -c -nc -nH -nv --no-check-certificate https://www.dropbox.com/s/XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXxxxxxxxxxxxx/FoxitPDF.reg?dl=1 -O C:\Support\FoxitPDF.reg ) Powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy ByPass -File C:\Support\WriteToHkcuFromSystem.ps1 -RegFile C:\Support\FoxitPDF.reg -CurrentUser
  7. @Chris Are you saying that "Notification based actions" are already implemented or are planned for a future release? Any updates on that feature being implemented and when approximately?
  8. Moving Scripts between folders would be wonderful! Definitely second that suggestion.
  9. I have started to use my Dropbox storage to both pull and push files from agent machines. Using Chocolatey, I install curl on the agent, and then using curl, I can upload files to Dropbox, via command line or script, to Dropbox. Or using tasks and scripts, I can push files to agents. Also, Chocolatey is wonderful for installing apps on remote agents. I use it as my 3rd party patching solution. Flash and Java get updated as soon as the new version is out I agree that the ScreenConnect Toolbox simplifies the process, but I also enjoy writing my own solutions for problems. And once I write a script, I can reuse it infinitely across multiple agents.
  10. I am also interested in testing the new Pulseway Rd with File Transfer. Please add my name to the Beta as well.
  11. There should be no slash in front of ALLUSERS=1: msiexec /i https://www.pulseway.com/download/Pulseway_x64.msi /qn ALLUSERS=1 username=UUU password=PPP group=GGG server=SSS /L*v PulsewayInstall.log Found that out after a couple of hours fighting with the script. And any values that have a space for the username, pass, or server need to be in quotes. And in case anyone is interested, this is the syntax for using Chocolatey to install the agent, and passing custom arguments to the installer: choco install pulseway --ia "'ALLUSERS=1 username=xxx password=xxx group=""xxx xxx"" server=""xxx.xxx.xxx"" /L*v ""C:\Support\PulsewayInstall_%COMPUTERNAME%.log""'" You need quotes around the server name, because of the periods, and yes, the odd double quoting after --ia is needed, per Chocolatey documentation. I have tested this and it works perfectly in my environment.

    I entered "https://my.pulseway.com" and it worked for me, and I have a Pro account. Took some time to start collecting data though.
  13. Other RMM tools, like LabTech deal with this issue by having a 2nd service that watches the 1st service ad makes sure it is running. Have you guys considered something like that with Pulseway?
  14. Still having this issue on my Debian server: The server info: Description: Debian GNU/Linux unstable (sid) Release: unstable Codename: sid Linux albacore 4.9.0-3-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.30-2 (2017-06-12) x86_64 GNU/Linux Please let me know if more info is required. Thanks, Bart
