Best tools for collecting current state information for hardware and software
Our environment is mostly Windows servers, Citrix, Microsoft clients, HP, Cisco on the network and VoIP - and I am inheriting a bunch of ad hoc `asset management' process that are very poorly managed. We have SCCM deployed across over 20 locations and an SNMP network monitoring tool (not solar winds), plus we have most of our datacenter virtualized and hosted by a 3rd party.
Looking at your Tool reviews, SCCM does not even make the list. Any suggestions for getting my first snapshots of the hardware devices and sever/client software? We had a major compliance issue after last year's Microsoft audit, and one of my priorities is to ensure we are always within 5% of accurace on the licenses.
