EXPORTER-PRO

EXPORTER-PRO

Exporter Pro is the tool which is mostly used to scan for the information required for the Software License Review. There are two approaches to run the tool in a production environment.

a) Run the tool for specific OU in the Windows Active Directory.

Advantage: You can run multiple scans in parallel, so that the coverage is maximum, in case of large enterprise.

Requirements: Windows Domain Admin login is required to run the scan.b) Run the tool for specific list of computers.

Note: This can be used in the case of computers which didnt respond in the above scan. Or We want to scan machines based on the hostnames/Ip address. We can include a list of computers to be scanned.

Best Practise: In case of running multiple scans, it is seen that the outputs are written in different files which creates problem in the consolidation stage later. To avoid such situatins , it is recommended to i. Create a directory by the name of the OU (to be scanned).

ii. Copy the entire files of Exporter Pro.

iii. Delete the *.txt files (old output files).

iv. Run the Exporter Pro. Exe from the same directory.To Scan The Computers In An OU Of Active Directory 1. Basic Screen Give the Deloitte license

We need to input the

2. Configure the Settings MAIN WINDOW

c) Configuration New Export Configuration TemplateWe need to provide the OU name for the following inputs as *Configuration Name:

Configuration File:

Object File Name:

* use the proper naming convention, which holds good depending on your convenience.

d) Setting to be configured for the Object File createda. General

Result: Tool will scan for the computers from Windows Browser List

Ping Options This is optional, which helps to see whether the computer is in the network or not.

b. Output

Result: Will dump and export log of the scan.

The Export file export.txt should be saved in the directory created for the OU in the beginning.

c. Computers

Result: Will dump the list of computers on the OU selectedThe Output file Output.txt should be saved in the directory created for the OU in the beginning.

d. Registry

Result: Will dump the registry settings from the computers scanned in an OU.

1. Installed Software Applications (Default)

This will list out all the installed applications defined in the Filter List configured as per the requirement from the computers.

Example Output File Name: apps.txt

Example Output File Name: config.txt

The output file config.txt should be saved in the directory created for the OU in the beginning.

4. CPU (Default)

This will list the detailed information of the processor in the computer scanned.

Example Output File Name: cpu.txt

The output file cpu.txt should be saved in the directory created for the OU in the beginning.

5. IBM Products (Custom To be configured)

This will list the details of the IBM Products installed in the computer scanned.

Example Output File Name: ibm.txt

The output file IBM Products.txt should be saved in the directory created for the OU in the beginning.

j. Run

To Scan For Selective Computers

When the scan is not covering all the computers in the OU, there may be requirement for us to scan the rest of the computers that were not scanned. To complete the scanning for the remaining computers the following procedure is followed.Steps to be followed to run Selective Scan:

1. Copy the all the contents of the exporter pro directory in to a new folder, eg. test
