  • ... get AD query results to appear in pull-down of recent results?

    We are trying out the new feature of being able to see scheduled tasks from multiple servers. In order to do this I have to run an AD query on the 'Computers' entity in my AD domain. (This because you can't highlight multiple things in the left pane). Once I get the results in the right pane I use the filter to pare it down to only those computers with 'server' in the OS name. Now I can highlight multiple servers and get a list of scheduled tasks.

    The problem is that I have no quick way to get back to either my filtered results or even the full query results without running the entire query again.

    Is there a way to get the query results to appear in the pull-down list (above the right pane) of recent results? We have about 16K computers and I'm getting tired of running the query! :-)

    Thanks for any help,

    We don't have a way to save the filtered view, but I did put together a query that might make this easier:

    Go to File->Manage Object View->AD Queries.
    Change the Query Type to Container/OU Contents.
    Click the New Query icon to create a new query.
    Give it a name like Servers, and enter the following in the LDAP Search Filter box:
    (&(objectCategory=computer)(objectClass=computer)( operatingSystem=*server*))
    Check the box to include subcontainers and click OK.
    You can add any attributes you want, then close Object Manager.

    To run this, right-click on the Containers/OUs object for your domain and choose Query Active Directory->Servers.
