Why Altiris Hardware inventory scan taking very long time more than 9hours in UNIX machine?
If it's hardware inventory, you can try running the inventory scripts manually. Here are a couple kb article that explain how.
http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO32547 - Manually running inventory ULM scripts
http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO36035 - Gathering inventory data for troubleshooting purposes
And, here's a shell script that will run each inventory script. You can create and run it anywhere on your system since it changes to the correct directory.
By running this, you can see which category or script is hanging. We can trouble shoot from there.
### Modify the shell in the above statement, as appropriate or required
### this script requires sudo or root priviliges
# cd to the correct directory for running individual shell scripts.
# find the current OS
# Test for OS/Platform. Case-sensitive values used in script names are: AIX, Darwin, HPUX, Linux, Solaris.
#if [ "$CurOS" = "Linux" ]; then
case "$CurOS" in
Linux) filemask="*Linux*.sh" ;;
Darwin) filemask="*Darwin*.sh" ;;
SunOS) filemask="*Solaris*.sh" ;;
HP-UX) filemask="*HPUX*.sh" ;;
AIX) filemask="*AIX*.sh" ;;
# loop thru specific list of directories; run each shell script for appropriate OS
for dir in CltInv_HW CltInv_OS CltInv_SW CltInv_UG SrvInv_DB SrvInv_OS SrvInv_VM SrvInv_WEB
for file in $dir/$filemask
echo "Processing script: $file"
Thanks Sure will check and update.
Meanwhile is there anyway in SQL report which shows task history of unix machines for last 30 days.
The console has a canned report. Reports>All Reports>Task Server>Task Summary by Resource
You can clone the report and add in the OS criteria to pull just your UNIX machines.
