I”m looking for a tool to carry out a network inventory of all the PCs on my domain and not too sure what is the best freeware for this.
I have found one called Steel Inventories but it only lets you scan up to 25 PCs on the network my network has about 45-50 machines on it.
OCSInventory is the biz – we use it across 2 sites and about 180 PCs. It collates stats on hardware and software installed on a scheduled basis and this is imported automatically into our helpdesk software (GLPI). The app’s native environment is a Linux server but there is a Windows package too – details on the site.
