Is it essential to install the agent?
#1
I have a doubt. To have the inventory information of the computers on my network, is it mandatory that each PC has the FI Agent installed? Do the Discovery and Inventory tasks do not do the same function?

Hi djmolletones,

NetDiscovery & NetInventory tasks are not sufficient. Theses tasks will mostly discover & inventory network devices and printers using SNMP protocol. Computers won't be inventoried as even if SNMP would be enabled this does not provide sufficient informations to obtain a full and reliable inventory. So you absolutely need the agent on computers.
