Changing computer description from within PDQ

Is it possible to change the computer description of a computer from PDQ? We are using this field as a specific locator to designate where a computer is located.

  • Yes. You can use a Remote Command in Inventory. For example, to change the computer description for the computer ALCOHN I would select ALCOHN in PDQ Inventory and then run a remote command (Tools > Remote Command). This is a command I could run:

    net config server /srvcomment:"Building 233"




    After making the change, run a new scan against the computer and the new description will be shown.



  • Would there be anyway to make this into a custom tool so it could be ran, prompt for a manual entry, then apply that entry?
