There are scripts to gather memory, processor, disk and much more inventory data. Running these scripts from a shell will display the results to a screen. This provides a method to see exactly what inventory solution is gathering from a client computer.
Scripts are categorized as follows: Hardware (HW), Operating System (OS), Software (SW) and User & Group (UG). Sub-directories for each of these categories, each of which contains multiple inventory scripts, are:
If Inventory Pack for Servers is installed, the following directories will also exist here:
To run these inventory scripts:
cd to: /opt/altiris/notification/inventory/var/repo/providers/CltInv_Common/aex-shellprovider/scripts/
Run the script: ./CltInv_<category>/<scriptname>
Output should display to the screen. (The "Invalid GUID" messages can be ignored when running the scripts manually.)
Note: You will need to run these with root privileges (log in as 'root' or use sudo). Also, some data may not be returned if authentication is required, i.e., Inventory Pack for Servers database inventory.
The figure above shows an example of how to find and run the Altiris_HW_Baseboard-Solaris.sh script on a Solaris Machine. The bash shell can be opened by entering bash into the terminal.
IMPORTANT: Do NOT modify these scripts. Doing so could break inventory solution.
