This is indeed possible through Landesk Data Analytics; you can look at this page in order to help you;
I hope it will give you the answer you are expecting,
I only have Console Extender under the Data Analytics tool. I don't see Directory Services anywhere
You would need to contact your sales representative and look into getting that added to your licensing.
Console Extender / Management suite is the free part of LDDA indeed. You need to pay for a LDDA license in order to access to the Directory Services. I would advice you to contact your Landesk account owner to have a price estimation.
Sorry, but this does not make sense. The base LANDesk product is designed to collect inventory, so WHY should I have to pay A LOT more for Data Analytics, which by nature is not an inventory add-on?
LDDA enhances a lot more the "Based" Landesk product. It would worth to know what you could do with it. I suppose we can''t split each LDDA use and index the price upon this criteria. You should contact your Landesk Account Manager in order to know how much it would be if you'd be interested in.
The bit you are talking about should just appear in a Printers section of the inventory record.
Sebastien is talking about the Discovery Services part of Data Analytics that can go further by scanning the network and collecting configuration data directly from the printer.
Without this you should have printers in the inventory record listing what the inventory scanner can detect as configured on the client machine.
