Anyone knows if there is a way to user Lansweeper to aggregate assets ?

I want to see which servers support an application, for instance, Backup App uses the server X,Y and Z, Domain Controllers are servers A and B, Service Desk uses server C and D.

I can use the comment field, but this solution don't answer the question "what servers are supporting application X".

Using a custom field to store the application name ?

Is there a solution inside Lansweeper for this ?

Not sure of an automated way that Lansweeper can do except by software as ErikT explained, but you could use Asset Grouping (Static or Dynamic) to build out your aggregating needs. It would require some work to setup, but once done it should fit the bill.

Hi there, 

you could go to the Software tab and select Windows Software. 

Now click on the software you are interested in and you'll get all the Windows assets that have that software installed.

Ok... my bad.

I'm not talking about software in the server, but Application, as SAP, Backup (server, NAS, etc), Service Desk, IT Asset Managment (Lansweeper).

These apps sometimes requires front end servers, backend servers and the need to aggregate the servers under a common denominator is what I'm talking about.

Here's what I do:   Find a unique thing/item about the app stack you want to have.  It could be a piece of software, a running service, a registry key, a file at a particular location, etc.  Example:  Veaam backup servers always have a windows service LIKE '%Veeam%' on them.  Another example would be "A radiologist's read machine HAS to have 'RadICS' software on it" 

You could make dynamic groups quickly... but I don't use them because they are difficult to report on.  Instead, I either make a report with all of the checks like I mentioned above, or i make a stored procedure in SQL to update a custom field like 'Application Family' as appropriate.
