3.3 Viewing an Inventory Report for an Inventory Only Device

A device’s inventory includes information on hardware, software, and demographic data, which is gathered in an inventory scan. To view the Detailed Hardware/Software Inventory report, enable the View Detailed Inventory rights setting from the Management Zone > Inventoried Device rights.

To view an inventoried-only device’s inventory:

  1. In ZENworks Control Center, click Devices.

  2. Click the Inventoried tab.

  3. Click the folder containing the device you want to view the inventory of.

  4. Click the desired device.

    The Inventory panel shows basic inventory information.

  5. Click Detailed Hardware/Software Inventory for a complete inventory report.

    This report shows detailed information about the device, including demographic data, hardware information, and software. From this page, you can click the various links to get more detailed information about the device.

    Check the History tab, to view the changes made on the device. The software or hardware creation dates are based on the scan file processed on the server. If you have set a weekly scan on the device for a certain day of the week, the change history shows the changes made between two successive scans, with the date the scan is run. Only hotifx components show the actual install date for the particular device.

    You can export the report to Excel, CSV, or PDF formats. You can also edit demographic data. For more information, see Section 2.6, Editing a Managed Device’s Inventory Data.
