FlexNet Manager Suite 2020 R1 (On-Premises)

Command line | Registry

InventoryType identifies the inventory type, either machine-based or user-based.
Note: User-based inventory collection is deprecated, and included only for backward compatibility. Specifically, no policy is generated in FlexNet Manager Suite for user-based inventory collection, so that the ndtrack component does not normally generate any user-based inventory. Furthermore, there is no guarantee of future operation of user-based inventory, and the recommendation is to convert any legacy systems to use machine-based inventory.


Values / range

String literals User or Machine.

Default value

User unless the account executing ndtrack is LocalSystem, in which case the default switches to Machine.
