One of the functions that Microsoft left out of SMS 2.0 is the ability to collect inventory from a stand-alone system, yes I know that you can create a MIF & obtain some information that way. But that is a work around I'm talking about being able to collect the full software & hardware inventory just as if the client was connected to the network. For this to work you must have a working SMS site server. : Cut a CD image from the site server containing the following directories Cap_(site name) & SMSLogon.

1) Installation assumes CDROM drive is D: if this is not the case, please modify batch file.
2) On the client system, insert the supplied CD into the CDRom drive & run "Setup.bat" from root of the CD following on screen instructions.

4) Open "Control Panel" and select the new "Systems Management" icon. Select the "Components" tab and while highlighting "Hardware Inventory", select "Start", then do the same for "Software Inventory".
5) Give the system about 5 to 10 minutes to generate the inventory records, then insert a floppy in drive A: and run "CopyInv.bat" which will copy the necessary files onto the floppy disk. Confirm the following files exists on the floppy disk "*.ddr" and "*.inv" files.
6) Open "Services" in "Control Panel" and stop the "SMS Client" service. Set the service's startup to "Manual" (Note: if this is not done, the client will continue to generate *.inv files at the domain scheduled frequency. 7) The following batch files need to be edited to reflect your site
net share CAP_(site name)=D:\
net share SMSLogon=D:\ d:
cd \x86.bin SMSBOOT1.EXE -S %0 -N -WINDIR=%WINDIR%
echo Use Task manager and wait for Clisvcl to start and CliCore to stop pause
cd ..\clicomp.box\wbem\i386 WbemSdk.Exe -s
echo Please Reboot your system now
d: cd \clicomp.box\SInv\i386 InSInv32.Exe -s
cd ..\..\..\clicomp.box\HInv\i386 InHInv32.Exe -s
