Thanks for Your answer. Could You please explain for 2) some more detailed what You mean with "take it at the source" ? Where is the "agent invenotry" stored?
Do You mean one shall run the inventory agent with "local" option, so that it stores a XML file locally and there the SNMP info is stored?
BTW having "server" and "local" option in agent configuration file defined both, leads to the log message
[Mon Aug 25 08:49:17 2014][debug] Section DRIVES has changed since last inventory
[Mon Aug 25 08:49:17 2014][debug] Missing value(s): SSN . I will send this inventory to the server BUT important value(s) to identify the computer are missing
[Mon Aug 25 08:49:17 2014][debug] sending XML
[Mon Aug 25 08:49:17 2014][debug] sending: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
And the inventory run takes only few seconds, no IP discovery, no SNMP scan.
When I comment out the local option again, the agent works again incl. IP discovery and SNMP scan.
Regarding the roadmap for 1) where can I find that item? I looked at
But there I see version 2.1 but I am running already 2.1. I do not understand such a roadmap. Should a roadmap not show things for future versions ? Maybe with an ETA?
