Program Purpose And Benefits

The purpose of these programs is to give you a workable method to deal with the inconsistencies that creep in over time as regards the ZENworks for Desktops inventory databases. It provides you with a means to purge dead workstation objects and defunct / duplicate inventory data from your inventory databases.

The reports will help you identify workstation containers that have been ‘missed’ by your inventory polices (the containers are not associated with an inventory policy), and also identify any workstations which are being inventoried by more than one inventory policy (inventory is incorrectly going in to more than one leaf database).

You are also given a report that helps pinpoint which containers held workstations that have been removed but the associated inventory data has not been purged from the inventory databases.

It also identifies all duplicate workstation objects and duplicate user objects throughout your directory tree. You are also provided with a chronological list of all users ordered by last login time, which allows you to identify redundant user accounts, and accounts that have never been used (no last login time).

The leaf database statistics are also useful for identifying where inventory roll-up policies are not being applied or are not working correctly.

The output produced by these programs includes:-

    Workstation last-registered-date reports, including statistical data:-
         Number of workstation registered during the Last 30 days
         Number of workstation registered during the Last 60 days
         Number of workstation registered during the Last 90 days
         Number of workstation registered during the Last 120 days
         Number of workstation registered over 120 days ago
         Number of LDIF Delete entries generated
         Number of workstation with no last registered date
         Number of workstation with no last scanned date
         Number of workstation not scanned within the last 7 days

    LDIF delete file containing records to force purge of ‘dead’ workstation objects.

    Duplicate directory tree workstation object report.

    Duplicate workstation inventory in master inventory database.

    Removal files which can be used to automatically delete much of the bad inventory data from
    both the master and leaf inventory databases.

    Inconsistency reports comparing workstations in the directory tree, master database and leaf
    databases. This identifies which workstation objects have not been inventoried and any
    inventory data that is defunct.

    Directory tree workstation object container totals.

    User objects by last login time.

    Duplicate user objects in the directory tree.

    Duplicate workstation inventory in leaf server inventory database.

    Overall workstation object, inventory and user statistics, including:-

      Directory Tree Workstations:
           No. Duplicate Workstation Objects
           No. Workstations with Duplicate Objects
           Total No. of Workstations (Inc. Dup Objects)
           Total No. of WKS NOT Inc. Dup Objects

    Master DB Workstations:

           Duplicate Workstation Records
           No. Workstations with Duplicate Records
           No. WKS Records No Longer In Directory Tree
           No. WKS Records in Master DB Only
           Total Master DB WKS Inc. Dups/Redundant
           Master DB Total WKS NOT Inc. Dups/Redundant
           No. WKS NOT in Master DB (Less Tree Dups)
           No. WKS in Master DB/Tree but Not In SUBDBs
           Master DB WKS in Tree/SUBDBs (Inc Dups)

    SUBDB Workstations:

           Duplicate Workstation Records
           No. Workstations with Duplicate Records
           No. WKS Records No Longer In Directory Tree
           No. WKS Records in SUBDBs Only
           Total SUBDB WKS Inc. Dups/Redundant
           SUBDB Total WKS NOT Inc Dups/Redundant
           No. WKS Not In SUBDBs (Less Tree Dups)
           No. WKS in SUBDBs/Tree but Not in Master DB
           SUBDB WKS in Tree/Master DB (Inc.Dups)

    Statistical Summary

           Percentage of Bad/Defunct WKS in SUBDBs
           Percentage of Bad/Defunct WKS in Master DB
           Percentage of Duplicate WKS Objects in Tree
           Percentage of Tree WKS in SUBDBs
