Inventory Scans – Using multiple accounts for mixed environments

Mixed computer environments are pretty common, so it was pretty clear out the gate that we needed to include a way for admin to use multiple credentials when using PDQ Inventory to collect inventory.

A common setup is an organization that has most, but not all, of its Windows computers managed in Active Directory. The non-domain computers also need to be scanned. Another situation that we see quite a bit is the multi-domain environment.

In this video Shane demonstrates setting up multiple credentials in PDQ Inventory and assigning which accounts are for which computers. 

Remember, PDQ Inventory requires admin privileges on all the computers that it scans.
