If you want to only inventory a Windows, Linux or Macintosh OS X device, you can deploy the Inventory-only module. The inventory-only module only collects and sends the inventory data. It does not perform any of the other tasks associated with the ZENworks Agent. See ZENworks 2020 Update 3System Requirements for information about the platform versions on which the Inventory-Only module is supported.
NOTE:From the ZENworks 2020 Update 2 release onwards, SSL certificates are distributed to Inventory-only devices during the registration process, to secure communication between the ZENworks server and the Inventory-only device. During a server certificate remint, if for any reason the registered Inventory-only device does not receive the new certificate, then you will have to re-register the device. For more information on re-registering the device, see Re-registering Inventory-Only Devices.
