We have several thin clients with extremely small hard drives. There is not enough room on the drive to install the LANDesk agent on these computers not even an embedded agent. Does anyone know of a way to run "LDIScn32.exe" from a flash drive or network share to inventory the computers? I have attempted to run it and it was looking for elogapi.dll and ygrep32.dll. I copied these files over from a computer with the agent and now it just crashes when I attempt to run "ldscn32.exe /o=c:\test.scn."
Yes you can - please view: How to run an Agentless Inventory scan on multiple computers from the Core Server with LDDiscover.exe
Edit: Make sure on your core server that you add an inbound exception for port 5010 otherwise the lddiscover tool will not function correctly.
I just tested this on 9.5.2 and it worked just fine.
Let me know if you have any issues,
As an alternative, take a look at Data Analytics - Discovery Services and Asset Control. You can create agentless WMI and SNMP scans here where the results will be in its own Asset Control overview.
We have the same problem getting the Embedded agent installed, and the only way I've been able to get around it is to run it from a batch file. I have to change the location of TEMP first, since the default is Z:\Temp. I then copy the agent executable to the Z:\Temp and run it from there. It then extracts to the C:\Temp folder. I need about 120 MB to get it to extract and install.
IF NOT EXIST C:\TEMP MD C:\TEMP
COPY /Y \\coreserver\ldlogon\agentinstalls\embeddedagent.exe Z:\Temp
After a reboot the TMP and TEMP variables will be set back to Z:\TEMP
