HP Battery Recall View

  • Last night I was reading Engadget and found out about the latest HP battery recall. It affects about 70,000 machines, and it's a good excuse to get a brand new battery for a probably-aging machine.

    Anyways, the article lists the potentially affected model numbers, and I thought to myself "Hey, I bet I could create a view for that..." and so I did!

    I don't believe Kaseya has a mechanism for exporting views, but as far as views go this is pretty simple:

    In the Advanced Agent Data Filter:

    Manufacturer: *hp* or *compaq* or *hewlett*
    Product Name: *dv2000* or *dv2500* or *dv2700* or *dv6000* or *dv6500* or *dv6700* or *dv9000* or *dv9500* or *dv9700* or *a900* or *c700* or *f700* or *v3000* or *v3500* or *v3700* or *v6000* or *v6500* or *v6700* or *g6000* or *g7000* or *6720s*

    And that's it! I was able to run an aggregate table report with the machines I found, and forward that on to the Director of Support Services at my company, who was very impressed. So take a moment to add this view and contact some users, and hopefully you'll be avoiding tickets like "My laptop blew up" or "My house burned down!"

  • This is an actual filtered view (select view) for a machine group.
