    Inventory Scan ONLY Custom Data

    JacobTucker Apprentice

      Before I submit an Idea, I'd like to see if anyone knows if there is a switch for inventorying ONLY custom data or some other creative solution.


      The reason this is of value is because we have several inventoried WMI classes where the values are re-enumerated by a script.


      I'd like to add this command to the end of the script to send in the newest custom data without forcing the extra effort of a full sync scan.




      C:\Program Files (x86)\LANDesk\LDClient>LDISCN32.EXE /F /SYNC "/CDOnly"


      This doc does not lead me to believe this is current functionality: About Inventory Scanner Switches

          "yes and no".


          So - "NO" as custom data is part of a (full) software scan for historical reasons. So you'd need a full one of those to do that.


          HOWEVER ... there is this option here, if you know what you're intending to send ... How to send Custom Data with a Miniscan -- which has been incorporated into the inventory scanner (as pointed out in the comments).


          So depending on what you're after, you CAN just run a few lines of the relevant command to get your custom data in  / updated.
