Complete the following procedure to schedule the Managed Computer Inventory task.

To schedule a Managed Computer Inventory task:

  1. In the left pane of the Patch Manager console, expand Patch Manager System Configuration > Management Groups, and then select Managed Enterprise.

  2. In the center pane, select the domain or workgroup you want to inventory.

  3. In the Actions pane (right), click Schedule Inventory.

Note: If you have never run the Inventory Configuration task, Schedule Inventory triggers that task first. For additional information, see "Configuring the Managed Computer Inventory Task".

  1. On the Schedule window, set the Scheduled Time, Recurrence pattern, and Range of recurrence, and then click OK.

  2. On the Computer Selection Rule Management window, select an existing computer selection rule, or define a new one:

    1. If you want to save the new computer selection rule for future use, enter a name for the rule in the Select an existing computer selection rule menu.
    2. Under Computer Filter select or clear options as appropriate. Note: Select and configure the Only include computers that have a reported time option to avoid exceeding your Patch Manager license.
    3. Click OK.
    4. Specify whether you want to save the rule settings using the name you defined in Step a.
    5. If you clicked Yes on the previous dialog, click Yes again to confirm your selection, and then click OK on the success dialog.
