The Server Inventory component of Novell® ZENworks® Linux Management allows you to collect hardware and software inventory information from local and remote servers or workstations of your enterprise. This inventory information is scanned and stored in a database that can be accessed by the ZENworks administrator.
The Inventory scanning capability of ZENworks Linux Management performs the following tasks:
Collects hardware and software inventory information from workstations and servers managed within your enterprise.
Stores the inventory information in a database that can be accessed by the ZENworks administrator.
Rolls up the hardware inventory data from the database to the ZENworks 7 Server Management database or the ZENworks 7 Desktop Management Inventory database so you can view the inventory data at the enterprise level.
