ZENworks 11 SP4 Asset Inventory - Adding Hardware to Inventory Reports

October 2016

Asset Inventory allows you to scan and collect hardware data for devices in your Management Zone. The hardware data includes information such as keyboard, video adapter, CD/DVD, hard drive, and BIOS. Any hardware that cannot be categorized is listed as Other Hardware in the inventory report.

If a device has hardware that has not been reported through an inventory scan, you can manually add the hardware to the device's inventory report. The following sections explain how to perform this task:

1.0 Prerequisites

  • Ensure that you have the Device Rights > Modify right for the device whose inventory report you want to add hardware to.

  • Ensure that you have the View Detailed Inventory right to view software/ hardware details in the inventory report.
