    ZfD Mini Inventory Scanner gathers basic hardware and software inventory data from a workstation and writes them to the appropriate eDirectory attributes of the workstation object (similar to ZfD 4.x Inventory or higher).

    This can be useful in when: are migrating from ZENworks for Desktops Inventory to ZENworks Asset Inventory and want to keep the minimal inventory data on the edirectory workstation objects up to date (ZENworks Asset Inventory does not maintain these attributes) are using ZENworks for Desktops 6.5 and want to maintain the asset tag information on the workstation object (ZfD 6.5 has a bug that deletes this attribute, ZfD 4.x and 7.x are not affected). In asset tag only-mode, ZfD Mini Inventory does not require any license, see documentation on how to configure the software to run in this mode.

    ZfD Mini Inventory Scanner features an (optional) enhanced mode that reformats some values for better readability and adds additional information to the minimal inventory data, e.g. ZfD Agent version and screen resolution details.

    ZfD Mini Inventory Scanner currently requires direct eDirectory access via Novell Client32 from the client workstation, LDAP support is planned but not yet available, ZENworks Middle Tier support is neither available nor planned.

    ZfD Mini Inventory Scanner is free for trial and asset tag only mode. Full mode requires one license per workstation tree.
