A Battery Present targeting item allows a preference item to be applied to computers or users only if one or more batteries are present in the processing computer. If Is Not is selected, it allows the preference item to be applied only if the processing computer does not have one or more batteries present.

Additional considerations

  • If an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is connected to the processing computer, a Battery Present targeting item may detect the UPS and identify it as a battery.

  • To reposition a targeting item within the list of targeting items that you have applied to a preference item, either drag the targeting item to a new position, or select the targeting item and then click the Move Up arrow or Move Down arrow.

  • This targeting item can be useful for portable computer detection.

  • Preference items are available only in domain-based GPOs.
