How to get information from remote PC
You can get information from remote computer through WMI (agentless method) or through "NAT Pro - Agent" (agent-based method). By default Network Asset Tracker Pro uses WMI. To use agent-based scan you should install "NAT Pro - Agent" on remote PC. Network Asset Tracker Pro automatically detects if "NAT Pro - Agent" is installed on remote computer.
Just select computers you want to scan and click "Get Info" button from the toolbar or press "Ctrl+I". This will start scanning remote computers.
You can set up the type of information collected from remote computers. To do this select menu "File" -> "Options", then "Scan Properties".
The account attempting remote access should be an administrator on the target computer (for example - domain administrator). If you don't have rights of the domain administrator you can use custom logon name and password for getting info from remote PC. To do this, select menu "File" -> "Options", then "Custom Logon".
How to use the agent on remote PC
If you have any problems with WMI, you can use agent installed on remote PC. You can install "NAT Pro - Agent" from main Network Asset Tracker Pro installation package. Also you can download "NAT Pro - Agent" as a standalone installation package. You can download a standard EXE-package or download a MSI-package for remote deploying through Active Directory.
- green color of computer's icon shows that "NAT Pro - Agent" is detected.
You can set up some options of agent installed on remote PC. To do this select menu "Computer" -> "Remote Agent Information".
By default the icon of "NAT Pro - Agent" is visible in system tray on remote computer. You can hide this icon from system tray. To do this select "Hide tray icon" option in "Remote Agent Information" window.
How to use Logon Script
To use logon script select menu "File" -> "Options", then select "Scan Using Logon Script". All you need is to set up shared folder where an inventory tool natagent.exe will be placed and shared folder where resulting files will be saved.
To create a new logon script you should click "Create logon script" button. If you already have logon script please click "Update existing logon script" button.
Usually logon scripts are located in the folder "%systemroot%\SYSVOL\sysvol\domain_name\scripts". You can assign a logon script to a user account. When a user logs on and a path to a logon script is present in the user account, the file is located and run.
The natagent.exe closes immediately after the logon script ends.
How to use custom columns
You can use custom columns for storing your custom information, for example serial number, phone number, etc... To edit data in custom column click "Edit Custom Column" button from the toolbar or click twice on custom data you want to edit.
