It is  possible to manually audit machines that are not connected to the network, and manually merge this data into the Numara Track-It! Server.

This is how you do it:

In the Track-It! Server, locate the file \Program Files\Numara Software\Numara Track-It!\Track-It! Server\ audit.exe.  Copy it into the machine that needs to be audited, and run it. (It's running parameter may be configured in the Track-It! Administration Console:

  • Tools – Admin Console – Inventory – Audit Execution
  • Tools – Admin Console – Inventory – User Interaction

Upon execution, the audit wizard will run, and the data will be collected. When it's done, a folder named "Data" is written to the machine's desktop. Within that folder is an xml file with the audit's data.

You can then take this XLM file and drop it into the server's "\Program Files\Numara Software\Numara Track-It!\Track-It! Server\Data"   directory.

Once you do that, you can run the merge audit data command within Track-It!, and the data from the unconnected audited machine will be incorporated into the inventory.
