Is anyone aware of a tool which can be used to collate information including installed software, hardware, network devices, configuration etc, and automatically produce a report including the results?

We used to use TrackIT which is a great auditing & job tracking tool. Due to the restructure in our I.T support we no longer need it but for a start (as well as my previous job) it was great!  You can schedule reporting times, fault logging if there is a system error, etc and the audit reports are very detailed!

I use WinAudit

http://www.pxserver.com/WinAudit.htm

It has a user gui but you can set it so that doesnt show - all the user then sees on login is a small transparent window saying "Your PC is currently being audited" for a few seconds

It's freeware even for commercial use, doesnt hog the PC while scanning, and I use a SQL db and IIS with a bunch of asp and scripts to populate a database with the results

Small download, very customizable, small footprint, gives you full network (all network devices), IP's, computer names & software installed and as a benefit, does real time monitoring to show you what new software installs occur.
