Vector Networks Enables Unattended Installation

Vector Networks Inc. announced the release of its LANutil32 Suite 5.02. LANutil32 5.02 offers several enhancements, including real-time software distribution, the introduction of DMI technology, support improvements for SQL Server and Oracle, and new comprehensive node reports.

The 5.02 Client kit now supports DMI as a means to retrieve certain items of key data from DMI-compliant BIOS implementations such as make, model, and serial number.

The new Software Changes report summarizes PCs that have experienced either new applications, deleted applications, or application version changes, all without disrupting users. The License Groups utility then compares the inventory data with management’s application deployment policy and reveals any rogue configurations.

The software distribution agent is capable of running in real time, without requiring logon, making it possible to run software or data distribution tasks overnight, network-wide, simultaneously, and invisibly.
