View Full Version : Flexera's Altiris Out of Box Inventory Adapter doesn't pull Linux software

10-25-2018, 11:17 AM
One of our major inventory data sources is Altiris. Today the Out of Box Flexera inventory adapter for Altiris is pulling only software data for windows from the Inv_AddRemovePrograms. There are other tables which store the linux software data but these tables are not being looked at by the inventory adapter. This is an issue as we are missing software for all our linux machines where we use Altiris as our inventory tool.

Flexera is saying that this is an enhancement request that has already been submitted that they are working on. However, there is no ETA as to when this will be available. Our question is, "Has anyone written a custom Altiris inventory adaptor that pulls in linux software information that you would be be willing to share with us?" Thanks!
