I have about 200 Hosts I need to inventory. Several of them are not able to be inventoried by OCS inventory, because they are firewalls and switches, or shutoff. I also have had issues with adding hosts that are moved to new machines causing duplicate entries in OCS inventory. I also would like an LDAP authentication solution.

I'm aware of GLPI, but that's just moves the issues I have with OCS inventory to another system.

I would very much love to have something where I can manage IP networks, DNS and rack location.

Is there an option that is not OCS inventory?

I'm not sure if there is such an open-source tool but there is a rack plugin for GLPI which has a lot of nice features to manage racks.

OTOH, I've recently discovered GestioIP which seems to be a great (and automated) open-source tool to manage ip addresses and VLANs. GestioIP can automatically update the networks against OCS inventory, providing easy integration, among other nice features.

You don't want OCSinventory?

Then try FusionInventory
