SQL query help RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

      I have been trying to find a solution to this reporting issue.

    We have loads of servers and each server has loads of shares.

    I need to get a report that has ONE row for each server where:

    If the server has a share called "WINDIST" then display in the "Path" column the path of the share.

    If the server does not have a share called "WINDIST" then display a blank in the "Path" column.

    The closest my query gets is to return two rows for every server that has a "WINDIST" share. That is by using a select distinct with a case statement to populate the path column. As servers with the "WINDIST" share also have other shares is why i end up with a duplicate row.

    Any hints on what sql query feature i could use to achieve my goal please?

  • Thanks - Here it is:

    SELECT Distinct v_R_System.Name0, v_GS_LOGICAL_DISK.FreeSpace0, v_GS_LOGICAL_DISK.Size0,WINDIST =
    FROM v_R_System inner join v_GS_SERVICE on v_R_System.ResourceID = v_GS_SERVICE.ResourceID
    inner join v_GS_LOGICAL_DISK on  v_GS_LOGICAL_DISK.ResourceID = v_R_System.ResourceID
    inner join v_GS_SHARE on  v_GS_SHARE.ResourceID = v_R_System.ResourceID
    Where v_GS_SERVICE.DisplayName0 LIKE '%Windows Deployment Services%'
    AND v_GS_LOGICAL_DISK.Name0 = 'D:'
    ORDER BY v_R_System.Name0
