    When I create a policy rule I have the option of defining it based on machine name mask.

    What is the syntax to this? The help nor the ERA guide seems to not have the syntax listed.

    I have tried PC* Pc.... and PC.... with the thought of . being a regex. Nothing I am trying is working. I am clicking apply, and then run rules now. These machines actually switch back to the default policy when I do that.

    It uses normal wildcard syntax, so PC* should work (assuming you aren't having case sensitivity issues). Are you sure you don't have a superceeding policy rule re-assigning the clients to the default policy after they are switched to this new one? That and make sure you are selecting the correct policy from the Policy drop-down menu.

    It was the drop down menu / select policy which I had wrong. For some reason I didn't see that and assumed that when I switched tabs from the policy manager to the rules that I was working the rules for that policy. I see the error of my ways now. Thanks!
