1.8 Collecting Software and Hardware Inventory

Hardware and software inventory is automatically collected from each device. The hardware inventory includes details such as operating system, RAM, BIOS version, network adaptors, CD-ROM manufacturer, and a host of additional information. The software inventory includes a complete list of all installed packages, as well as all ZENworks-install bundles.

To view a device's hardware and software inventory:

  1. In the ZENworks Control Center, click the Devices tab.

  2. Click the Servers or Workstations folder to open it.

  3. Click a device to display the device's Summary page.

  4. Click the Inventory tab.

You can also roll up device inventory to a ZENworks 7 inventory database. For more information about collecting software and hardware inventory, see Section VII, Hardware and Software Inventory.
