Insights into more Dell Hardware

Since all our platforms are Dell, and the DSIA Agent is installed on all devices, i would love to get more hardware info from the devices. Specifically Dell Docking and their firmware/serial so we can keep track of the type of docking and warrant status on them.

    Advanced Insights will soon provide information on Docking Stations from Dell, Lenovo and HP via custom hardware inventory extensions.

    Hi There,

    Can confirm that docking station reporting (DELL,HP,LENOVO) will be coming to Advanced Insights, firmware/serial reporting specifically for DELL will be limited to models that DSIA officially support. Worth noting that Dell Command Update can also provides us with firmware + serial numbers and may provide data on models that DSIA does not.

    Thanks

    George

    Hi Thomas,

    Great Idea, we've actually been interested in being able to report on docking stations for a while now. I will add this to our list of ideas and hopefully you will see this release in a future version down the road!

    Thanks

Dock Info

Merged
Can dock information be pulled into Advanced Insights? It would be very useful to see which laptop is connected to which dock, firmware version, serial, usb-c/thunderbolt etc. Similar to display and network which is already included. Our estate is...
