Integrating Lansweeper with SCCM

SCCM integration is a feature introduced in Lansweeper 7.2 BETA. The BETA download page provides more information on Lansweeper 7.2. Keep in mind that BETA installers are experimental. They should be run on a separate test server and should *not* be used to update your Lansweeper production environment.
Not all Lansweeper licenses support SCCM integration. If your particular license does not support this feature, you can contact for a trial.

From version 7.2 BETA onward, Lansweeper can integrate with System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM). Specifically, Lansweeper can scan machines that are visible in the Assets & Compliance\Devices section of your SCCM server and cross-reference them with Lansweeper assets.

Scanned SCCM data includes device name, domain, IP address, manufacturer, model, operating system, processor, memory, resource ID, serial number, site, client details, network adapters, software and more. Lansweeper assets are also automatically created for any Windows, Linux and Mac computers that are found in SCCM and that were not previously found by Lansweeper.

Step 1: set up the SCCM scanning target

To set up an SCCM scan, hit the Add Scanning Target button in the Scanning\Scanning Targets section of the web console. If you have multiple scanning servers, there will be a separate configuration tab for each server. In the resulting popup, choose SCCM as your scanning type. You will then be asked to submit:

  • Name: a name for your scanning target. This is for personal reference only.
  • Username: a user that's an administrator on your SCCM server and has at least the Read-only Analyst security role within SCCM.
  • Password: the user's password.
  • SCCM Server: your SCCM server. You can submit the server's name or IP address.
  • Description: an optional description for your scanning target. This is for personal reference only.
  • A scanning schedule.

Step 2: scan the SCCM target

Once you've configured your SCCM scanning target, you can start scanning it. You can either wait for your scanning schedule to trigger or manually initiate a scan with the Scan now button next to the scanning target. Keep in mind that SCCM scans do not visually show up in your scanning queue. They're processed silently in the background.

Step 3: view SCCM data

SCCM data can be viewed in the Config\SCCM tab of your SCCM server and client machines. The Summary tab of a client machine detected through SCCM also indicates what the machine's SCCM server is. Scanned SCCM data can be viewed using built-in or custom reports or the built-in widget as well. Perform a search for "SCCM" in the Reports menu.
