    Thin Client Asset Mapping

    pebcakproblemsolver

      Hello everyone,

       

      I was wondering how people have mapped thin clients to their WHD Asset database.
      Currently we are running with about 1/2 of our machines as thin clients and I would like WHD to be able to reach out and pick up the info (serial, MAC, etc) of the thin clients like it does with everything else.
      Any thoughts/best practices?

       

      Thanks!

          I would think the main concern here would be:   1) Are they Windows machines? and 2) Can WHD talk to them using WMI?   If the answer is yes to both of them then you should, in theory, be able to pull the asset info in from them.   The most common issue there is likely firewall ports blocking the ports used by WMI to collect the data.
