Can this Toolkit give out false data RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • We had an audit and the IT professional used the MAP toolkit to audit the servers in each establishment. The IT professional was logged in with Domain administrator credentials and the toolkit was installed and allowed to run. The report that came from the audit was that the tool had pulled out incorrect information about their setup and users. Is this possible.

    Many thanks

  • It's a very vague question. It can not give out 'false' data but it can at times collect some incorrect attributes due to things like WMI errors and old AD records.

  • Hi Andrija. I have had a different experience running the MAP tool kit. Sometimes it doesn't collect the hardware information because of WMI issues. After troubleshooting, I don't even get the collection and the problem persists. According MSFT technet, the last choice is to reinstall the WMI, or the Operating System. I'd like to have some recommendations, prerrequisites for getting a successful inventory.
