network inventory ?
Found this when I was on the SIW website as it was advertised on there :
Free hardware inventory and software inventory for windows networks
Was just wondering if its any good or if anyone has used it and what there opinions are ?

I haven't used it but i have a similar program that does the same things
It can be found here
Very useful tool to have save me noting down the serial number of every networked machine when purchasing new equipment. Just had to add the projectors and whiteboards to it and it's fully functional audit software too.
If you don't mind the adverts it will integrate with active directory too which is something i don't think the free version of lansweeper will do

I have a setup where i am using XAMPP and OpenaudIT to perform hardware and software inventories. I have it run as part of the logon process. I was using Spiceworks but decided I wanted something where I had access to the information and not another outside source.
apache friends - xampp

Just started using GLPI here - it integrates with AD, and also OCS NG..

OCS and GLIPI here too. Runs loverly and as it's installed as part of the computer startup settings, there's no way round it!

I have known about spiceworks for quite a long time and know its very good and have even tried it and quite liked it.
Although when used on a network with hubs - is ridiculously slow ( obviously )

I use ocs inventory

I currently use OCS NG feeding into GLPI.
However asset management is an addition to MLH that Oz is working on using barcodes to track assets so I will be testing that as soon as I can get my hands on it.
