Asset Inventory allows you to scan and collect hardware data for all the devices in your Management Zone. The hardware data includes information about keyboard, video adapter, bus adapter, monitor, CD/DVD, LAN adapter, diskette, hard drive, memory module, parallel port, printer, mouse, BIOS, serial port, system board, processor, USB keyboard and USB port. You might also find other categories of hardware components apart from the ones listed. The unrecognized hardware components are listed as Other Hardware in the inventory scan report. You can view the collected hardware data in several ways by using standard and custom reports.
NOTE:On a SLES or SLED Inventory Only device, for the inventory scan to work correctly, prior to running the scan, you need to ensure that the lsb-release rpm is installed.
