I was wondering whether it's possible to report on the warranty status of Dell machines without the need for a paid 3rd party tool such as Warranty Master etc?
A few years ago that was a possibility and there was several procedures circulating to do so. Today, we use Warranty Master and import via a script that Brian Manning wrote. Currently, Kaseya is working on a process to go directly from Warranty Master to the database to further streamline the process.
Upstream's PowerPack contained a procedure that checked machine's Dell warranty via VBScript. I can share it if you wanna check it out?
It seems that Dell has blocked warranty checks so the procedures do not work anymore:
can you provide link or more info on import script by Brian Manning.
FYI, we wrote and published a new Dell Warranty lookup script. It is available on the Automation Exchange for $10, or included in a ClubMSP subscription.
