Auditing of network

By tomt ·
Please help me...I need to run a small application that will audit each node on my network (less than 100 nodes in all) in order to find out what hardware and software is installed on that node. I am concerned about software licensing issues and want to use a product that is easy to use and understand that will help me achieve this goal. If you know of a straight-forward shareware or freeware application that will serve this purpose please let me know. I do not know what I wish to audit, so I do not know what files to look for on each node. Basically I want a complete look at each node in simple terms. If I am not being clear, please let me know. Thank you.

I doubt you can find anything serious for this purpose in the freeware/shareware sector. The entry-level desktop management sector, retailing for $10 - $ 20 per desktop, might be worth looking at. Suggestions are the desktop managers (look for an option without remote control and sw distribution, that would increase the price) from McAfee, Veritas (DMS) and an utility (dunno the maker) called LANAudit.

Hope this helps,

If you have SMS (Microsoft System Management Server), it has a function to perform the audit you are looking for. It writes the data to a SQL table.

Good Luck!

I'm not aware of any freeware or low-priced shareware that will accomplish this. SMS is very expensive and complicated to implement so I doubt that is a viable option for you.

However, there is a software product called Track-It! that will probably do what you want. It's around $500 for a single user workstation license that will handle 100 PC nodes.
