    Open source Asset Management for Windows

    Hi all,

    Please don't shout at me for this as I know there are alot of threads regarding Asset Management, but I can't find anything specific for my needs.

    I am after an open source asset management solution that will work on windows, as I have no linux knowledge at all and prefereably web based.

    I have got an old Windows 2003 server and I have put on a help desk (Web Help Desk), room booking system (Devizes) and I just now need an asset management software as this has fallen by the way side recently.

    Printer consumables tracking would be a bonus.

    I have tried Spiceworks and I just feel thats a little overkill for what I need. We aren't a big school around 200 pc's and laptops.

    OCS/GLPI - As I said I have no linux knowledge at all, plus I would like to keep everything together on the old server.

    Again sorry for repeating a thread. I know I am probably asking too much.
    Sean

    Not really open source, but there is a free version: Free hardware inventory and software inventory for windows networks

    Use it here and found it far superior to spiceworks (as far as asset tracking is concerned)

    Thanks Domino ill look at that.

    Is anyone using OCS with a RM CC3 network and I wondered if it was possible to package build the agent and deploy it within CC3?

    Thanks

    Sadams - I have GLPI and OCS running on an old Windows 2003 server. It was a little fiddly to setup but works an absolute treat. GLPI pulls the data seamlessly from OCS and populates it. OCS Client works brilliantly and I have my whole network imported into it.

    Mine runs on an old Dell PE 2650 with 2 Gig RAM and it's plenty fast enough - no-one has complained anyway!

    This looks like a nightmare read but once you start it's quite easy and mostly all common sense!

    Install WAMP on the Windows server and install GLPI script

    Another +1 for GLPI and OCSNG. Runs like a dream
