Network Software Inventory

My supervisor has tasked me with finding software that will allow us to inventory our workstations and servers.

-no client install (client install acceptable for 98 machines)
-98/2000/XP/Server 2000/NT/Server 2003
-inventory collection of all installed software
-canned reports that display summary information on all applications installed, specific applications with related workstation & all applications installed on a specific workstation (not via report/query builders)
-ability to audit specific subnets or IP address ranges.
-intuitive interface (yes, hard to quantify)
-cost less than 5k for 600 workstation/server nodes.
-software license management/reporting

-hardware inventory and similar reporting functions
-detection and scanning of network devices and printers
-ability to schedule audits
-integration with help desk package
-application blacklisting & notification

I have looked at a number of packages and so far, few really meet the basic requirements. So far LOGINventory is looking like a good fit.

Is anyone currently using anything that would meet the basic requirements and what are your impressions?

sorry man you are screwed for 5k and under, the only way you are going to get that to work is already having sql, and visual studio and designing the system yourself, been there, could not find anything to work and i had the exact same price limit. good luck
