Collecting inventory remotely via USB for unconnected device
In an organization's infrastructure most of the time all devices connect themselves at least occasionally to allow for the synchronization of their computer with any type of regulation and data reconciliation. In specific cases it is however possible that an infrastructure contains a number of completely isolated devices, which never connect to the network. BCM provides for just such cases a specific tool with which to collect some basic data on the unconnected devices such as their identity and basic information on the system and its hardware and software inventory via USB. After the data is collected and stored on the USB key, it can be imported to the master database via any other device on which a BCM agent is installed. The custom inventory for the unconnected device, however, can only be created directly in the console.
