BigFix Labs contains various projects and information provided "as is" by multiple authors. BigFix Labs projects are not supported by BigFix Support. However, you are welcome to post questions/issues/concerns on, so that the BigFix Forum community can potentially assist. BigFix Labs projects are NOT put through extensive QA so you should test extensively and use the projects cautiously in a production environment.
