Windows Domain Scan
Scans all the Windows Workstations and Servers that are,
part of Windows domain
scanned using Active Directory, and
part of Windows workgroup
You can also scan workstations using an Agent or Agentless mode (scans machines using WMI).
Scan workstations and devices that are part of your network range. Network Scan supports,
OS workstations like, Linux, MAC, Solaris, IBM-AIX machines
Windows workgroup (workstations that are not part of any domain controller).
IP devices like Printer, Router, Switches and Access Points.
Schedule scan at periodic intervals to scan domains and networks that are part of your enterprise. Also, you can set re-scanning intervals to discover newly added workstations.
Scanning machines outside a domain/network
Scan Windows Workstations and Servers outside a domain/network using Standalone Workstation Audit or by installing an Agent in the remote machine. Both these methods involves script installed in the remote workstations which scans and pushes the inventory details to the AE server.
Use this option to scan an individual or newly added machines in your network. Machines like Windows, Linux, Solaris, IBM-AIX, MAC and IP devices like Printers, Routers, Switches and Access Points are currently supported.
Distributed Asset Scan
For all your remotely located workstations that cannot be accessed by the Central AE server, a Remote AE server is installed in each location which scans the workstation information, and pushes the data to the Central AE Server either manually or automatically.
