Following a vulnerability test recommendation, I enabled the Powershell execution policy on a Windows 2012 server that had had Automox running fine for ages. Now Automox can no longer communicate with the server and it seems this is because the Powershell scripts it tries to run are being stopped by the execution policy. So I disabled the execution policy but this hasn’t resolved the issue. running a Get-ExecutionPolicy - List command shows that at the machine level, the policy is still set to require signed scripts. However, in the local group policy editor and in the registry, the policy has been disabled.I need to find a way to set the execution policy to run all local and signed remote scripts, so that I can have Automox running but still secure the server.Any help will be most welcome! Thanks.
For powershell experts: I’m trying to customize the Java worklet in the catalog to install Java to non-default custom path. Using Argument-list INSTALLDIR seems to be erroring out. Anyone has the correct syntax to use in the Remediation script (Start-Process) Start-Process "$env:windir\Temp\$javaInstallFile" -ArgumentList "/s REBOOT=0 SPONSORS=0" -WaitWhat can I add to the above line so Java gets installed in path D:\Java ?? Thanks!
I’ve got a fairly basic patching policy in place to apply critical, high and medium priority Windows 10 updates. Everything seems to be running smoothly and the devices are showing as fully compliant in the Automox dashboard but the updates are merely downloading and not installing.I have scheduled reboots running against the devices in question but this has resulted in a reboot without the updates installing. Is there some element of the patching policy I need to set up or enable, or is actually installing updates not part of the patching policies within Automox?
I’ve found some informative threads on blocking the Windows 11 upgrade with Automox policy but I have devices I’d like to push Windows 11 to and I’ve been unable to use a policy or worklet for this. I have not found a patch or required software method to push out the Win 11 upgrade and have had no success running the upgrade via a worklet. Is there any type of best practice for the Windows 11 upgrade? It would greatly benefit our efficiency if I can use Automox for this.
With Covid we have more and more remote users and I’ve been having to rely on more and more remote tools and automation. Just curious if anyone has used ConnectWise and had any problems and/or did you use Automox to roll it out?
Hello, we are looking at moving away from SCCM and use Automox for our updates. What is best practice to configure a policy that will update severe and high updates once every 30 days? I have Install Optional and Recommended Windows Updates enabled, package targeting is Critical and High Device Targeting with Attribute = OS, Condition = In and Value = Windows. I do not have a schedule assigned as I need to test this manually first. User Notifications are set as:Install Notifications are disabledReboot Notifications are enabled Enable deferrals, enable automatic deferrals enabled, with hourly deferrals set as 1 hour, 2 hours, and 3 hours. Max deferrals is set as 3.
Hi Guys,I have previously mentioned this to support although I am not too sure if there is a procedure for requesting additional features for the Automox agent? thus thought it would be useful to post in the community to try and reach out the toe correct team\department.It would be really useful if the Automox agent was able to integrate with windows from a native OS reboot perspective. One thing I am seeing allot is that users are postponing the reboot notifications generated by Automox and then restarting there device outside of Automox. Although patches are still being applied the Automox dashboard does not appear to be aware of this reboot and the agent continues to report back to the dashboard that a reboot is required.If the reboot is initiated from the Automox reboot notification the dashboard updates as expected when the r the host reboots although it would be useful if there was some integration to reboots that are initiated outside of the Automox.
If this doesn’t belong in the “Labs” portion, I apologize in advance. I’m migrating devices from one Zone to new Zones. I think I’ve got that process mostly down, but am now looking for the best way to use the API to read in a csv file with the new devices and join them to a new group in the new Zone. Do we have something like that, that I can use?
Hey AM TeamWe had an MSI browser extension to install via Automox but it fails due to UAC. When we created a required software policy to install the MSI file, it just fails and would not install. Trying to install locally, we found that it requires UAC and local admin privileges. Is there a way around this using Automox? From my understanding, Automox should be installing apps as local admin?
So what’cha want?Happy 2022, y’all! Even though we’ve barely stumbled into the start of 2020: Part III, I think we’re probably all ready for a cup of tea and a nap. But first, I have a question: What AX features are highest on your wishlist for 2022? Here, I’ll get us started: as an Admin, I’d like to see some remote device management in the AX console. (Sorry, but none of you can use that one now! )_______________________________________________________________________________ While we look to 2022, let’s also look back at 2021 - the features AX released last year came fast and furious at times, so we’ll do a quick recap. Give me just a second..so many new things..Recapping…..Okay, done! Here’s a quick, non-chronological rundown (organized by functionality), with some links to additional resources. If you have any questions about any of them, let us know in the comments. Automation Flexible Device & Package Targeting Gives admins the ability to target specific devices and/o
Hi All, Is there a way to make a policy Worklet (already setup) for Ipconfig /flushdns run constantly on like a 5 minute loop for 1000 PC’s. It currently looks like this below.

Worklet to run both Uninstall and re-Installation of New version of RingCentral Apps for Vulnerability Fix
We received an email from RingCentral that there is a vulnerability Fix and Enhancement for RingCentral App, RingCentral Meetings, and RingCentral Meetings Rooms. RingCentral recommends to delete the old or legacy version of RingCentral apps and re-install the latest one afterwards. They have provided the PowerShell script to uninstall and cleanup the following apps running on a Windows operating system including removing any shortcuts for all users.RingCentral Meetings app RingCentral Meetings Outlook plugin RingCentral Classic app RingCentral app RingCentral Phonehttps://support.ringcentral.com/app/admin/desktop-web/powershell-scripts-uninstall-ringcentral-mvp-apps-classic-windows-system.html
