  • 1. DEPLOYMENT OF AN INVENTORY TOOL FOR NETWORK AND SERVER ASSETS CASE: ORANGE CAMEROUN Done by: Talla Bill Morrisson Under the supervision of: Mr. Leonnel Kwedeu and Mr. Emile Chuenmogne
  • 2. Overview Introduction Methodology Results Demo Conclusion
  • 3. INTRODUCTION The structure of IP networks increase rapidly with the particular needs of an organization With the changes in hardware and configurations on these networks, having an up-to-date inventory of all these equipments can be a nearly impossible task depending on the volume of the networks, when using a tool like Excel. Due to this kind of problems this project was assigned such that a tool can be administered to automatically inventory network and server assets and update information about those assets when modifications are done on the network INTRODUCTION METHODOLOGY DEMORESULTS CONCLUSION
  • 4. METHODOLOGY These were the elaborated steps for the project to be accomplished Search of different inventory applications, test and elaborate their characteristics Choose a tool that meets the needs of the organization Test and deploy the tool on the network These are the criteria taken into account for the choice of the application: Type of database Compatibility with operating systems that are in line with organization's policies Web interface Remote administration of assets Tracking of hardware and software warranty status INTRODUCTION METHODOLOGY DEMORESULTS CONCLUSION
  • 5. METHODOLOGY These are the applications found that could perform more or less the awaited tasks: SpiceWorks Lansweeper OpenAudit OIDVIEW SNMP MIB browser Netdisco RANCID INTRODUCTION METHODOLOGY DEMORESULTS CONCLUSION
  • 6. METHODOLOGY Below is a comparative table for the different applications. INTRODUCTION METHODOLOGY DEMORESULTS CONCLUSION Criteria Spiceworks Lansweepe r OpenAudit Netdisco RANCID OSMB Database Not-cited Not-cited mysql postgresql No No Web interface Yes Yes Yes Yes No Yes Operating system Windows Windows Windows/ Linux Linux Linux Windows Remote administrati on No No Yes Yes No No Tracking of hardware and software warranty No No Yes No No No
  • 7. RESULTS When comparing the different applications the following points were brought up: Spiceworks can't detect any device without having the credentials of devices that a user will not even want to scan Spiceworks et Lansweeper can't do remote administration of assets. RANCID can only detect equipmenta of specific brands and is only used with the command line. OIDVIEW SNMP browser lacks a lot of functionalities for the tasks needed. Netdisco has nearly all the characteristics needed for tasks at hand but has a postgresql database which is not in line with the policies of softwares used in Orange Cameroun. INTRODUCTION METHODOLOGY DEMORESULTS CONCLUSION
  • 8. RESULTS My choice was laid on Open-Audit because in spite of having all functionalities required it can track the hardware and software warranty status of a device and it is in line with the software policies of Orange Cameroun. It gives the choice on the type of equipments the user want to scan and inventory. The documentation on the software is concise and clear. It has a large community that can assist users in the troubleshooting and deployment of the application. INTRODUCTION METHODOLOGY DEMORESULTS CONCLUSION
