Split Computer CIs into Server and Desktop

Split Computer CIs into Server and Desktop

It is quite often I get asked, how many servers do we have, how many desktops. It woud be nice if the Desktops and Servers were not lumped together in one CI. The Node is Desktop attribute is not always reliable enough to distinguish between the two. This might need to be split further beyond just Desktop and Server though if there are other iterations that need to be included.

Based on Operating system (Windows 7, Windows 10) and node_role contains desktop then CI should get populated on desktop/workstation CI Type.

Based on Operating system (Windows 2008, Windows 2012, Windows 2016) and node_role contains server then CI should get populated on server/windows CI Type.

For Unix/Linux desktop, again based on Operating system (Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation, SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 15, Citrix XenDesktop 7.15) and node_role contains desktop then CI should get populated on desktop/workstation CI Type.

For Unix/Linux server, again based on Operating system (Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server,  SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15, Citrix XenServer 7.6) and node_role contains server then CI should get populated on unix CI Type.
