    Hardware Asset Tagging




      We are new to LANDesk Management suit, we would seek your help in learning how do we tag hardware IT assets, example are listed here :


      1. Laptops to be tagged as LPT – 0001, ………..
      2. Desktops to be tagged as DTP – 0002, ….
      3. Printers to be tagged as PTR – 0003, ……………..
      4. Servers to be tagged as SRV - 0004


      Asset tagging will help in asset tracking and gives out the history to whom the asset is allocated.


      With Warm Regards,

          Are you looking to change the hostnames on the OS?  The hardware asset tag?  Or just create an alias in LANDesk?  Many of these fields you see in Inventory are being pulled directly from the OS and the hardware, and are reported in Inventory exactly as they are pulled and these cannot be edited.  However, you can add custom Inventory data, though it is a little work.
