Hi Kris, Here is a workaround to create a group based on the service. 1. Create a attribute for this service. a. Open SCE console, go to Authoring pane. b. Right click "attribute" and choose "create a new attribute". c. Specify the name and description, choose "Discovey type" as "Registry". d. Select target as "Windows Computers" and save it in Default MP. e. The path should be HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\<the name of the service> Note: please check the key name in the registry of the client. f. Attribute type should be "Check if exists". 2. Create a new group. a. In Authoring space, right click group and select "create a new group". b. In "Dynamic Memebers" tab, select "Windows Computer" and click "Add" button. c. Select "Property" as the one you created in above steps, select "Operator" as "Equals to " and "Value" as "true". d. Click create to finish. Hope this helps.
