Hi @Daisy,

which Operating system ?

The OCS agent is an overlay of the operating system and if it is supported, I do not see what can be problematic.

At worst, some informations from the Bios not reported…

> Optionally, you can install the OCS agent on one of your machines and take inventory locally (OCS icon, execute OCS inventory now) > No need to have a OCS server online for that !

Thank you for your reply.

OS - Windows 10 PRO.

When I asked ASUS about working OCS on their laptop I recived such answer: "Which protocol OCS uses to connect with BIOS Asset Tag? Does OCS supports AMI and Phoenix ?(because they use AMI but without direct recall to asset tag). Does it download data from BIOS or UEFI?

Hi @daisy,

Windows 10 is the latest Microsoft OS to date, well !

I have several ASUS laptops in IT infrastructure and they normally update their informations with OCS.

The best way is to install the OCS agent on your PC and generate a local inventory in XML format…

CMD > as administrator

and execute :

"C:\Program Files (x86)\OCS Inventory Agent\OCSInventory.exe" /local /xml=".\"

Thus, you will know precisely in XML file what OCS core report as informations (and more if you add plugins scripts).
