8.2 Scanning the Device

Unless your administrator has disabled the inventory scan schedule, the ZENworks Agent performs an inventory scan on your device on a regular basis. Your administrator determines the schedule; the default schedule is the first day of every month.

You can also initiate an inventory scan on your device, unless your administrator has disabled your ability to do so.

To initiate a scan:

  1. Right-click the ZENworks icon ZENworks icon in the notification area.

  2. Click Technician Application.

  3. From the left navigation pane, in the inventory menu, click Details.

  4. Click Scan Now.

There is no indication that the scan is being performed. However, when you refresh the Inventory page, you know the scan occurred if the Last Scan field displays the current date and time. You can click View Inventory Details to see the results of the scan.
