Use this tab to specify whether to collect Management Information Format (MIF) files from Configuration Manager 2007 clients during hardware inventory.
In order for a MIF file to be collected by hardware inventory, it must be located in the correct location on the client system. By default, the files should be located as follows:
IDMIF files should be located in the Windows\System32\CCM\Inventory\idmif directory.
NOIDMIF files should be located in the Windows\System32\CCM\Inventory\noidmif directory.
- Collect IDMIF files
- Adds a new architecture—and attributes and classes—to the Configuration Manager 2007 site database. IDMIF files are used to add information to the site database for objects other than Configuration Manager 2007 clients.
- Collect NOIDMIF files
- Extends the hardware inventory by adding attributes and classes to existing architectures on a client. NOIDMIF files are used to extend, or add, new information about existing Configuration Manager 2007 clients to the site database.
