This is a how to video on creating a standalone inventory package. Standalone inventory packages let you gather inventory for unmanaged computers. Unmanaged computers are computers on which the Symantec management Agent is not installed.

A standalone package is an executable file that you create in the Symantec Management Console. This executable file is run on an unmanaged user/client machine for which you want to gather inventory. Standalone inventory packages can only run on Windows-based computers. To execute this package and gather the inventory correctly, you must be a local administrator.

If you are using standalone packages, you must be able to report the inventory data back to the Notification Server (NS) computer. You can use different options of reporting data depending on the configuration of your network. You can create multiple packages with different options based on your needs.
