Hi Kapouik !
Thanks a lot for these informations !
I have to add a few more clarifications about my questions. I was way not so clear :/
- About the most "Powerfull" agent, I was meaning about inventory capabilities :
Is an agent (Linux or Windows) able to detect more configuration items than the other ? (more peripherical, more network equipments and so...)
My scope is : all kind of servers (Unix, Linux, Windows, VMware hosts...), user computers (Linux, Windows), periphericals (printers,...), network equipments (switch, routers, firewalls....), DMZ machines, roaming computers, storage arrays.
- About the Wake on Lan feature, I was meaning : Is an admin able to ask the OCS server to send some sort of broadcast to contact all deployed agents, asking them to perform an inventory and send it back to the OCS server ?
Concerning the VMware inventory by SNMP, is it possible to "crawl" the host to detect all VMs running on it ?
Many thanks !
Have a nice evening !
