Receiving Portable Audit Results

After running the Portable Audit and collecting audit snapshots, you must transport the flash drive (or any other media you used) with audit results to a computer hosting Network Inventory and import audit snapshots into the database as follows:

  1. Select Audit > Import Snapshots from Media from the main menu. The Import Snapshots from Media Wizard starts.
  2. On the Welcome page, click Next.

    IMPORTANT: The wizard checks if the Automation Server is running. If your server is not started, the wizard will give you a warning. In this case, configure the Automation Server first and restart the wizard.

  3. On the Select Snapshots page, click Select and browse to and select the audit snapshot files (.adt files) to import and click Next.
  4. On the Ready to Import page, review the specified settings and click Next to start the import. Network Inventory imports selected snapshots and prompts you to remove the portable media.
  5. On the Import Completed page, click Finish to exit the wizard. A new "Check" task appears in the Task List. When the task is finished, the newly received audit data appears in the corresponding Site.

    NOTE: After audit snapshot is uploaded to the database, the Changes message appears in the status bar. Click this message to refresh the data display.
