  • Hi iislas,

    do you have a list of IPs or hostnames of these devices? If so, you could load this list (under "Discovery Methods", "Import computer names from a file" into MAP. What I expect you'd need is a local administrator account on all those clients.

    Kind regards

  • Hi,

    THis might also be an option. Taken from the wiki.

    Windows Networking Protocols

    This method uses the WIN32 LAN Manager Application Programming Interfaces (API) to query the Computer Browser service for computers in workgroups and Windows NT 4.0–based domains. If the computers on the network are not joined to an Active Directory domain, use only the Windows networking protocols option to find computers.

    • Credentials required - None

    If the Windows Networking Protocols page of the wizard does not provide a list of workgroups, Windows NT 4.0 domains, or AD DS domain NetBIOS names, ensure that the Computer Browser and Server services are running on the computer performing inventory.
