We're running LANDesk 8.8 SP1 and would like to create an agent that only does inventory so we can capture hardware and software information only.
Obviously we can switch off Custom Data Forms, Software Distribution, etc but this still enables Patch and Vulnerability scanning, which could mean that someone could patch a server if they had the rights.
Is it possible to use a series of files to run an inventory from a machine without actually performing an install so no services and files are resident on the machine?
The reason for this is we're trying to ensure we get LANDesk information for a series of servers that we don't have direct access to as they're hosted at a managed data centre. Having local installations that requires changes to the OS and an agent that could 'alter' the OS is a security risk that we need to remove.
If anyone else has this scernario or any ideas of how just to capture inventory data only it would be useful to hear...!
