Hardware Scan RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    I noticed some of my collections based on queries are not updating as expected.

    However looking at a lot of my active devices, they are showing as having no HARDWARE SCAN.

    Am I correct in saying this will only happen if the hardware inventory is Enabled in the Client Policy Settings? Mine is currently disabled.

    I have some devices with hardware scan, but I think this was when I first installed SCCM and then went about messing around with the policy. So if I enable this function it should then scan the clients..

  • Inventory has to be enabled; clients won't sent it if it's disabled.

  • Hi Torsten,

    If I change the default client settings, will this then apply to already installed agents?

    Do I need to right-click the collection and update the policy settings first?

    In the administration panel, if i look at my default client settings, the deployments tab is showing as 0?

    Is that right...

  • Default client settings are applied to each client automatically. No separate deployment needed. Clients will get that information when the next policy polling cycle ran.
