Flexera suggested that you deploy your Inventory Beacon in the same domain as your client, but my client do not allow it. My question is: Will I be able to collect the AD information for client if the Inventory Beacon is not in the same domain as my client.

A beacon should be able to gather data from any Active Directory domain as long as:

The beacon has network connectivity to the LDAP port on a domain controller from the target domain; and
Credentials of a user with appropriate read access to perform LDAP queries to extract data from the domain are recorded in the domain connection details in the beacon UI.
