WaaS 1809 – Regkey to MOF

We are currently writing several keys & values to the registry for our process to collect metrics, more details HERE: Registry Values used in WaaS Process for reporting

So, you have all that awesome data from your upgrades, and you want to collect it into your database for reporting, Registry to MOF is the key.  Garth wrote up a nice blog giving directions. How to Use RegKeyToMof – Ask Garth

And Paul too: RegKeyToMof – A Bit on How it Works | Wetter’s Source (wetterssource.com)

So now that you’ve read that and understand how it works, I can skip much of the detail and show you how it looks for the WaaS Process.

To get the tool: GitHub – AlzheimerZA/RegKeyToMOF_v36: RegKeyToMOF Tool by MVP Mark Cochrane

Basically you upgrade a machine, get a bunch of the WaaS Keys on a machine, then run the tool… it will look like:

That will get you most of the way there,  You can then add rest of the values you need manually: https://garytown.com/registry-values-used-in-waas-process-for-reporting

So you add the Config Mof to the Server like so:



Then you need to Import the other MOF file into your Hardware Inventory in the client center.


Clicking import… browse to the MOF.



Ok, so now you’ve got your inventory setup to gather that information.

Once machines have started uploading their data.. you can look at it in SQL… and make reports!

MOFs (Will also be included in the Collection Download)
