Enhancements in Snow Inventory Agent for Windows 5.2.2:

  • The field IsVirtual has been added to the client tag in the inventory scan result. This field will be set to true if a hypervisor is detected on the scanned machine, and false otherwise.

    • Intel Kaby Lake processors
    • AMD Embedded G and R-series processors
    • AMD Bristol Ridge processors

  • The setting hardware.scan.enable_cpuid has been added to disable use of the third-party component CPUID.
  • For privacy reasons, the software metering data (temporarily stored by the agent) is now obfuscated.
  • Drop location endpoints can now be configured without specifying the full URL. If it is missing, the suffix api/receiver/receive will be automatically appended to the URL of a drop location endpoint.
