Computers without AD


  • Hi All,

    We have around 50 computers connected through network switch i.e. there is no active directory (AD) in place. We want to use MAP tool 8.0 to collect inventory data. We have seen somewhere  if there is no AD, we can use the "Windows networking protocol" under discovery method. But when we try , it is asking for "username/password" in "All computer credential" section if we didn't give the finish button is disabled. We don't have common credential for all PCs. How to do the inventory.

    Thanks in advance,


    Thanks in advance

  • Hello -

    Unfortunately, the only real way around this would be either to create a common credential on all machines or to put the credentials for all machines in MAP.
