  • This scenario is best handled by an agent based/Internet based system like Microsoft Intune. An agentless system like MAP is not a good fit for this environment. Your choices when using MAP are to schedule a time when those machines must be connected to the network and then run the scan at that time. Alternatively, you can keep rerunning the scan, hoping to catch some of them when they periodically connect. 

    Otherwise, MAP has no way of connecting to those machines.
