Altiris Inventory Exclusions

If you’ve got a directory on a system that you don’t want the Altirs inventory solution to process when the software inventory runs, it’s quite easy to get it to exclude it. For example, A SAN volume that is mounted as a local disk on a server with userfiles on might cause the fileserver to incorrectly appear in custom inventory collections because of this.

You need to locate the the ‘auditpls.ini’ file in the inventory package on the Altiris server, and add an additional EXCLUDEDIR line under the [LOCALMACHINE] heading, then update the distribution points for the package. Hopefully your clients running the inventory agent should download the updated ini file when they next check in, and next time they run the scheduled inventory the exclusion will be taken into consideration!
