Where do you install deploy&inventory ?
So far i was using deploy installed on my pc. I have license for one admin (70 pc) Now i decided to buy inventory. I started to think that both tools should be installed on separate vm and opened 24/7 due to scan schedules in inventory.
What is your approach ? Can you give me any advice ? I want my inventory to be up to date.
Hi, depends of your needs and infrastructure i Guess,
Where i work it's installed (pdq Deploy and Inventory) on a VM which is always on
Thank you for answer F V,
At this moment i use Windows remote desktop to access my VM's.
Can you share how do you access them ? Is there any quicker, more convenient way ?
My Inventory is installed on a Lenovo M700. With SSD, i5-6400T, 16GB RAM. On my daily computer.
Just need to restart my computer every 15 days ~ (perfs).
Probably because of Inventory or Google Chrome, not sure ahah.
My Inventory have 2500+ computers, with many tools, scans, collections and reports. My DB is about 1 GB now.
No prob for 70 Workstations, I think, even if you scan all client's files and scan all the day.
But for me, Inventory is more greedy than Deploy.
I also use Remote Desktop to interact with the VM where PDQ is installed.
Managing 100+ workstations and 100+servers
Deploy DB size is 40Mb
inventory DB size is 120Mb
There's also Client mode. You get a full PDQ console without RDP :)
