This is a how to video on creating custom inventory. Custom inventory helps you extend the type of inventory you gather by adding the new data classes that are not included by default. Custom inventory also lets you extend the use of a predefined data class by customizing it.

Note: This is a silent video.

Hi, Symantec's backline technical support strongly recommends using the dataclass name rather than guid in custom inventory scripts. There are various circumstances that can cause the guid to change, i.e., hierarchy. Using the name will always work regardless of the value of the data class guid. Here's an example: 

set objDCInstance = nse.AddDataClass ("CimDataFile")
