Hardware auditing software - any ideas ?

By eliot.dalgleish ·
Hi All,

Have been looking for a software package that could do the following:-

1.scan and audit server/Pc hardware across Lan/Wan with no install/footprint on PC/Server.
2.Give detailed results ie network card name and results.
3.Retrieve hardware serial numbers (is this possible ? )if so it may need to target registry entries.

and cost needs to be low (now I am dreaming)

Any ideas ? I have been trawling and download various apps but nothing stands out !.

Thanks

BSA leaves no foot print

by lee-berry In reply to Track It!

I've use TrackIt pro for years and you need at least 1-server license to use it, but it does leave a footprint on each client it checks. Other problems is if the hardware is "playing dead" - not pinging then you won't see it across the network. Business Software Alliance also offers several solutions to auditing both software and hardware while tracking licensing. See http://www.bsa.org/
