    not sure what you are asking.  if you have an agent it runs inventory once a day if configured OOB.  If you mean run a full inventory vs. a delta inventory if you are on sp1 or above it does that OOB once a week.

    delta inventory. This helps in reconciling the inventory data, should any delta
    inventory updates be lost.
