Windows On-Demand Inventory
To conduct a windows on-demand inventory we first need to identify the hostname and IP address of the machine we are targeting.
Step 1: open the On-demand menu and select Windows inventory.
Step 2: Select the tests to be performed and enter the IP address or Name of the endpoint you wish to test. You will in most cases want to see the results of the “Ping, Check ports and Perform the inventory”.
Step 3: Now that you have selected the desired tests.
Provided the machine name or IP. you can now verify if the credentials for the device are already added to the credential manager if so, you can now click “Run test” or if you need to use alternative credentials or test a specific credential you can manually fill them into the credential section.
When running the test, the tool will by default run the test against all the credentials added in the credential manager one by one and print the results below. If you only want to test a single set of credentials, please add them directly into the page before running the test.
The result of the test will give you the following:
If ports are open, you will get the “ok” as seen below for all 3 protocols (SMB RPC WMI)
Next you can see printed out the inventory results for the software on the machine as well as the message informing you the inventory was successful at the bottom of the result (Inventory = OK).
Linux On-Demand Inventory
The difference when conducting Linux on-demand inventory is that the machine being targeted will connect via SSH over port 22 (by default) or a custom port select during the on-demand inventory.
Once again you can input a credential directly into the test or leave it blank to use the stored credentials from the credential manager.
VMware On-Demand Inventory
VMware inventory is the same deal, and the input should just be the IP address of the host,
The Credentials and a successful attempt will look as follows when the inventory has completed.
Any failures will show the errors as follows; this example is an incorrect credential resulting in a permission denied.
Mac On-demand inventory
To Perform a Mac inventory, you need to simply enter the IP address of the Mac endpoint and make sure that port 22 (SSH) is open for the inventory to be successful, Mac inventory can only occur over port 22 as SSH is the primary method of remote access to Mac devices,
Upon completion of the inventory, you will see a status message to indicate a successful scan or any possible errors or failures and their cause, such as invalid credentials, failure to contact the endpoint etc.
SNMP On-demand Inventory
SNMP inventory has a few different options for Version V1, and V2C device authentication you simply add the IP address or name of the device plus the community string, and you can conduct the test.
If you have setup a V3 SNMP device, you can enter the advanced details such as authentication protocol (SHA or MD5) as well as the privacy protocols (AES or DES) along with filling out the necessary authentication passwords or private keys you have setup.
Nutanix On-demand inventory
To conduct a Nutanix host inventory please enter your AHV controller IP address as well as credentials with access to the AHV hypervisor (Local or Domain Joined). The permissions required for the account are read only permission on the host.
If you use local AHV credentials you can leave the domain field empty and enter the username and password, if using NT authentication please enter the domain that is authenticated with the AHV controller along with the username and password.
Similar to all other on-demand inventories you will see a status message upon completion of either success or failure of the inventory.
