We have to fill out a Microsoft audit deployment summary Excel sheet for licensing purposes and I was wondering what is the best way to find out all of the information? Is there a network tool anyone has used or any best method to obtaining the information? We have about 30 PC's and 6 virtual servers.

Q: Can the MAP Toolkit inventory computers on multiple domains?

A: Yes. MAP can gather inventory information from machines on any domain as long as the appropriate administrator credentials are provided to the MAP wizard. The machine upon which MAP is running does not have to be a member of the target domain or forest.
MAP does not provide the ability to inventory and report networking information such as persistent routes or network topology. Also
Which operating systems can the MAP Toolkit inventory and assess?

A: MAP can be used to inventory and assess the following operating system versions, regardless of whether they are 32-bit or 64-bit:

Windows 10
Windows 8.1
Windows 8
Windows 7
Windows Vista*
Windows XP*
Windows Server 2012
Windows Server 2008 R2
Windows Server 2008
Windows Hyper-V Server 2008 R2
Windows Hyper-V Server 2008
Windows Server 2003 R2
Windows Server 2003
Windows 2000 Server

Note:

*Home versions of Windows XP and Windows Vista do not have WMI enabled and will generally not be inventoried by the MAP tool.

** Tested distros of Linux are Red Hat, Ubuntu, Suse, and CentOS.  However distros that support SSH and use dpkg or rpm for installations should be able to be inventoried.
