Smart group by boot volume name?


Is there any way to create a group by boot volume name? In the inventory details it displays the name, but I don't see where I can add it for a smart group.

Sounds like a good candidate for a dummy package.

# get the device id of your boot volume

bootdevid=bless --getBoot

# If the boot volume's device id matches up with the volume name you're
# looking for, call the custom-triggered policy.

if [ `diskutil list| grep "${bootdevid:5}"| grep -c
"theBootVolumeYoureLookingFor"` -ne 0 ] then jamf policy -action theCustomTrigger
