I am currently running Kaseya version 5.1. I will be upgrading to 6 in the very near future, so if the upgrade corrects my problem, please let me know.
I am having trouble checking a registry value in the IF portion of a script. The script is used to check if Backup Exec Debug Logging is enabled. If the value of the key is equal to 1, I want to run the IF portion and create a script and event log entry, if not the else portion. I can't seem to get the registry value detected correctly. The details of my script are below. I have tried various forms of "1" in the equals field. If it's set to 1, 00000001, or 0x00000001 it always runs the ELSE portion. If it's set to dword:00000001, it always runs the the IF portion. I have tired both "=" and contains. Can anyone help me with what I am doing wrong?
Thanks in advance.
IF Check Registry Value Parameter 1 : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\Backup Exec for Windows\Backup Exec\Engine\Logging\CreateDebugLog = :1THEN Write Script Log Entry Parameter 1 : Backup Exec Debug Logging was detected. OS Type : 0 Execute Shell Command Parameter 1 : eventcreate /L APPLICATION /T INFORMATION /SO Kaseya /ID 901 /D "Backup Exec debug logging enabled" Parameter 2 : 1 OS Type : 0ELSE Write Script Log Entry Parameter 1 : Backup Exec Debugging not detected. OS Type : 0
I am running K2 (6.0). I have a server running Backup Exec. I tested a quick script to test the key you mentioned to display a message is the key was 0 or run an else with a different message if the key was set to 1. I can confirm that it does indeed work perfectly fine in K2.
K2 only exports scripts to XML. But incase you want it here it is.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<ScriptExport xmlns:xsi="www.w3.org/.../XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="www.w3.org/.../XMLSchema" xmlns="www.kaseya.com/.../Scripting">

In Kaseya value dword:00000001 = 1 for registry values.
