    network shares

    Rookie

      Hi all,

       

      Is there a way to collect all the network shares of computer in the inventory? I can't find it.

       

      ex: x: \\server\share1
            y: \\server\share2

            z: \\server\share3

       

      Thx for the info!

          How to capture a Client's mapped drives as part of its inventory.

          1. Using NOTEPAD or a text editor, open the file "LdAppl3.Template" in the core server's LDLOGON directory.
          2. Look for a section with the heading: [Registry Info], and paste the following lines into the space below the heading:

          Key=HKCU, Network\E, RemotePath, Mapped Drive E:
          Key=HKCU, Network\F, RemotePath, Mapped Drive F:
          Key=HKCU, Network\G, RemotePath, Mapped Drive G:
          Key=HKCU, Network\H, RemotePath, Mapped Drive H:
          Key=HKCU, Network\I, RemotePath, Mapped Drive I:
          Key=HKCU, Network\J, RemotePath, Mapped Drive J:
          Key=HKCU, Network\K, RemotePath, Mapped Drive K:
          Key=HKCU, Network\L, RemotePath, Mapped Drive L:
          Key=HKCU, Network\M, RemotePath, Mapped Drive M:
          Key=HKCU, Network\N, RemotePath, Mapped Drive N:
          Key=HKCU, Network\O, RemotePath, Mapped Drive O:
          Key=HKCU, Network\P, RemotePath, Mapped Drive P:
          Key=HKCU, Network\Q, RemotePath, Mapped Drive Q:
          Key=HKCU, Network\R, RemotePath, Mapped Drive R:
          Key=HKCU, Network\S, RemotePath, Mapped Drive S:
          Key=HKCU, Network\T, RemotePath, Mapped Drive T:
          Key=HKCU, Network\U, RemotePath, Mapped Drive U:
          Key=HKCU, Network\V, RemotePath, Mapped Drive V:
          Key=HKCU, Network\W, RemotePath, Mapped Drive W:
          Key=HKCU, Network\X, RemotePath, Mapped Drive X:
          Key=HKCU, Network\Y, RemotePath, Mapped Drive Y:
          Key=HKCU, Network\Z, RemotePath, Mapped Drive Z:

          3. Save the file, then open the core server's console utility and go to "Tools | Software License Monitoring"
          4. There will be a tool on the tool bar (third from the far right in LDMS 8.5) that makes changes available to all users. Click this tool.
          5. When computers submit inventory, if any drives (from E: - Z:) are mapped it will be recorded. Highlight the main "Computer" heading in the inventory summary, and in the right pane you will see an entry for each mapped drive it found and display the path it was mapped to.

            While these are the keys, they are in HKCU which the scanner can only see if launched by the user.  Most of the time it doesn't run as the user.

             

            I suggest you take a look at ldms_client from droppedpackets.org.  This gives you lots fo additional inventory options including collection from HKCU.

              Beware of spending a lot of time with the ldms_client option if you're using LDMS9, I spent the morning trying to get this to work only to find out there are issues with it when you are running 9. I can verify the LDAPPL3 option does work but as posted the scan has to be run by the end user.
