Copying custom inventory script files to the Notification Server 7.5 computer

ITMS 6.x Migration

This task is a step in the process for manually migrating your custom inventory script files.

See Manually migrating custom inventory script files

When you install or upgrade to Symantec Management Platform 7.5 on Windows computers, the Symantec Management Agent automatically creates a package directory for storing your custom inventory script files.

By default, the path to the custom inventory directory for Windows is C:\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\NSCap\bin\Win32\X86\Inventory\Custom Inventory 6.1.

The package directory for Windows contains the following files:

  • AeXInvSoln.exe

    This file is the same as the file in 6.1 SP2. This file launches AeXCustInv.exe and AeXNSInvCollector.exe as specified in AeXInvSoln.ini.

  • AeXCustInv.exe

    This file differs from the file in 6.1 SP2. This file has bug fixes.

  • AeXNSInvCollector.exe

    This file differs from the file in 6.1 SP2. This file behaves in a similar way to the 6.1 SP2 file. However, this file generates Notification Server events (NSEs) in the new format that is required to store inventory to your Notification Server 7.5 computer.

  • AeXNSEvent.dll

    This file is new. AeXNSInvCollector.exe uses this file for generating NSEs in the new format.

  • AeXInvSoln.ini

    This file specifies an example of how to launch the AeXCustInv.exe and AeXNSInvCollector.exe files.

  • AeXCustInvStd.cit

    This file is a sample custom inventory script from version 6.1 SP2.

When you install or upgrade to Symantec Management Platform 7.5, the Symantec Management Agent does not create any special directory for storing your custom inventory scripts on UNIX, Linux and Mac computers. You can define by yourself where to store your custom inventory script files for UNIX, Linux, and Mac.

To copy custom inventory files to the Notification Server 7.5 computer

  1. Copy all of your custom inventory script files for Windows (.CIT, .XML, etc.) to the default directory C:\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\NSCap\bin\Win32\X86\Inventory\Custom Inventory 6.1.

    Copy all of your custom inventory script files for UNIX, Linux, and Mac to the directory previously defined by you.

    See Backing up custom inventory script files

  2. (Windows only) Copy all of your custom inventory .INI files to the default directory C:\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\NSCap\bin\Win32\X86\Inventory\Custom Inventory 6.1.

    By default, the naming convention for these files is aexinvsoln*.EXE.
