The purpose of these programs is to give you a workable method to deal with the inconsistencies that creep in over time as regards the ZENworks for Desktops inventory databases. It provides you with a means to purge dead workstation objects and defunct / duplicate inventory data from your inventory databases.
The reports will help you identify workstation containers that have been 'missed' by your inventory polices (the containers are not associated with an inventory policy), and also identify any workstations which are being inventoried by more than one inventory policy (inventory is incorrectly going in to more than one leaf database).
You are also given a report that helps pinpoint which containers held workstations that have been removed but the associated inventory data has not been purged from the inventory databases.
It also identifies all duplicate workstation objects and duplicate user objects throughout your directory tree. You are also provided with a chronological list of all users ordered by last login time, which allows you to identify redundant user accounts, and accounts that have never been used (no last login time).
The leaf database statistics are also useful for identifying where inventory roll-up policies are not being applied or are not working correctly.
The output produced by these programs includes:-
LDIF delete file containing records to force purge of 'dead' workstation objects.
Duplicate directory tree workstation object report.
Duplicate workstation inventory in master inventory database.
Removal files which can be used to automatically delete much of the bad inventory data from
both the master and leaf inventory databases.
Inconsistency reports comparing workstations in the directory tree, master database and leaf
databases. This identifies which workstation objects have not been inventoried and any
inventory data that is defunct.
Directory tree workstation object container totals.
User objects by last login time.
Duplicate user objects in the directory tree.
Duplicate workstation inventory in leaf server inventory database.
Overall workstation object, inventory and user statistics, including:-
