This is a network inventory software that provides you with information
regarding various hardware and software resources of all the nodes running on
your network. For doing so, it doesn’t require any client to be installed on
the nodes. Instead it uses WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) to collect
all the information. It can automatically scan for all the Windows based nodes
available on your network.

Once a node is detected, you can get information about all the processes
running on the system, details of all the software installed, all hardware
related information such as BIOS settings, processors, CD-ROM and hard disk
details. It also lets you create reports of all system processes, which can be
exported to HTML, XML, MS-Excel or RTF formats.

Step 1 (Running NAT): Using Network Asset Tracker is easy. The first
thing you need to do is to scan for the nodes on your network. But before doing
so make sure you have domain administrator rights and DCOM RPC service enabled.
For this click on the Computer tab on the menu bar and click on Find Computers,
if you want the software to detect nodes automatically.

Else, if you want to discover computers in a particular IP range, click on
‘Find computers by IP range.’ Once the nodes have been discovered they will
be displayed on the left side in the main window of the software. Now to get
information, right click on the node and click on Get/Update Info. Or if you
want information from all the nodes then click on All Get/Update Info.

Use NAT to
export all inventory data to MS SQL database

Once the software has acquired all the information, click on ‘System tab’
on the right to view all system related information. Similarly click on the
Software tab to view information about all the software installed on the node.
Click on Processes tab to view the processes running when the scan was performed
by the software.

Step 2 (Exporting Inventory Reports): To export all data acquired from
the nodes to MS SQL, click on File and then on Export all data to MS SQL. In the
window that pops up, provide the required details such as the name of the
database sever with authentication and the name of the database with table names
for each field. Then, click on Ok.
