Assign Asset Tag using Smart Label
Trying to figure out how to automatically apply an asset tag to assets that are virtual machines only. This will help us better track the amount of physical assets (workstations, printers, NAS devices etc.). I believe this can be done using a Smart Label but creating one using SQL is waayy out of my wheel house so I need some help with this!

Smart labels do not have the ability to update the database. They query the DB and return a result set.
Are these new virtual machines that have checked into the appliance? If so, there will be an asset of type "device" automatically created.
Are you looking to add a particular name/value pair to this new device asset?
There is the ability to edit/update Assets manually or you can update assets with the import of a CSV file.
