How to scan Chrome OS machines

Chrome OS scanning is a feature introduced in Lansweeper 7.2. If you are using an older Lansweeper release, you will need to update by following the instructions in this knowledge base article.
Not all Lansweeper licenses support Chrome OS scanning. If your particular license does not support this feature, please visit this page for more information.

From version 7.2 onward, Lansweeper can scan data for Chrome OS (e.g. Chromebook) devices managed by your Google organization. Once scanned, these assets can be accessed through the Assets menu in your web console. Scanned data includes basic system information, disk info and recently logged in users.
