Gathering software inventory on managed computers using the filescan.rule file
Client Management Suite for Mac
Software inventory using the filescan.rule file lets you collect information about the installed applications on your UNIX, Linux or Mac computers.
Symantec recommends that you customize the default filescan.rule file to include the additional applications that the software inventory should report. You can also add entries for the applications that are developed in-house. After you create or customize a filescan.rule file, you can distribute it to the client computers.
To run the software inventory using the filescan.rule file, you must have the Symantec Management Agent and the Inventory Plug-in installed on your client computers.
