Hello.

It seems the Inventory Report is based on WMI for Microsoft´s servers, is possible to run it on Linux servers by a script?.
Thank you.

Hi.

No because I don´t have a clue how to insert the data into Desktop Manager fields, there are lots of Linux scripts on the web so grabbing one a customizing it shouldn´t be a hard problem.

No problem. I will add this to our todo list. We plan to eventually support Linux in term of inventory management.

Hi.

Any news?, I would like to launch a script after Linux login to update / fill the inventory also, for Windows, it seems is not working unless you are domain admin, shouldn't it work as a local admin?. I'm currently using version 11.7.6.0 until our security team approves framework update.

Hello,
We have something on our todo list for Linux but it's not ready yet.

For Windows, we use WMI and perhaps something is limited with the local admin.

Thanx, I´m still getting the ERROR: Description = The RPC server is unavailable, it seems there are not allowed ports, so I'm trying to launch a remote script or use the agent, but how can I import the data into the RDM database?. BTW any hope to get some script documentation for the Linux inventory?.

Regards.

@gustavo,

The RPC server is unavailable error message is a message from Microsoft.

At the bottom of this help article, there's two commands that you can try on your computer to test the WMI requests and see if they are working to get information from the remote computer.

Hi.

It seems network security team doing its job, I can launch a script as a sub-connection to get some wmic queries, I would like to import that answer into the information tab as much as effortless as possible also, doing the same for Linux.

Do you have a sample of the Linux result?
