We have a few remote sites with RODC (read only domain controllers). The problem seems to be where the inventory scan uses LDAPWHOAMI.EXE to interrogate the domain for user information to include in the inventory. LDPAWHOAMI normally takes a few seconds to run depending on the size of the domain but runs for at least 30 minutes whilst trying to communicate with a RODC before timing out and finding another domain controller to return the information requested. If it was just the inventory scan this would not be such a problem but the knock-on effect when provisioning machines or installing software with a scan after is significant.
Is there any fix or workaround for this?
Is there a switch to skip the LDAP part of the inventory scan?
