hi guys,

I'm trying to use the MAP toolkit to do an inventory (orders of Microsoft) across our estate. I'm using other tools too, but I'm also obliged to use this unfortunate tool.

Anyway, I've run it and I'm only getting around a 17% success rate. I'm scanning a large network across multiple domains. I'm aware that some firewalls may be turned on, but have any of you used this tool to its full and what did you have to do in order for it to spit out the results needed? Did you use Group Policies to turn off firewalls when you did etc?

Thanks
Yashy

I NEVER turn firewalls off.. It is like using an axe when a scalpel is required.  Why don't you do it by domain and then merge the final output.
