Hi Mahbu,

Could you please provide more information about your issue?

  • Print Sreens of Resource Manager (Altiris) and Computer properties (Windows)

For example the WMI information:

1) Start -> Execute: wbemtest

2) Click on Connect twice

3) Click on Query and enter the following query: select * from win32_ComputerSystem

4) Click twice on the results and Show MOF. Copy the MOF and post here.

Altiris HW inventory query this win32_ComputerSystem for Manufacturer and Model information.
