Creating, editing, or cloning stand-alone inventory packages

Inventory Solution

This type of inventory is for Windows computers only.

You can create, edit, or clone stand-alone inventory packages. When you configure a package, you specify how the data is reported to the Notification Server computer. The inventory data is stored in files with an NSE extension.

By default, your stand-alone inventory packages are located on your Notification Server computer in the following location:

%InstallDir%\Altiris\Notification Server\NSCap\bin\Win32\X86\Inventory\StandalonePackages

This task is a step in the process for gathering inventory using stand-alone packages.
