In the StandAloneAgent folder, there is a file called "mgssetup.ini". This file needs can be configured to suit your needs. To see how you could configure the "mgssetup.ini", see the Ref_Preferences ForMD.pdf

Gathering of Inventory and Usage data

During operation of the Managed Device Agent, new inventory and usage data files will be stored in:

  1. Inventory data under

            %ProgramData%\ManageSoft Corp\ManageSoft\Common\Uploads\Inventories

            File name pattern: *.ndi.gz

  1. Usage data under

%ProgramData%\ManageSoft Corp\ManageSoft\Common\Uploads\Usage


File name pattern: *.mmi.gz


File handling:

The prefix of each file name contains the computer name and a time stamp. So the number of files increase periodically.

All files are compressed using standard settings (GNU-Zip format).

To collect those files, we recommend to:

  • Search for new files in both folders mentioned above
  • Copy each file to another (central) location (e.g. to the corresponding “Incoming” folder of a central Administration Server of RayVentory or RayManageSoft)
  • Delete each file from the local computer system after successful copy

Remark: ProgramData on Windows XP is “{WinDrive}\Documents and Settings\All Users”



Check Inventory Schedule

To verify your installation, run "ndschedag -t machine" as Administrator in order to see whether the schedule did install.


If you don't see any schedule here, run the following command as is with all quotation marks included:

CMD /C ""%ProgramFiles(x86)%\ManageSoft\Schedule Agent\ndschedag.exe" -o ScheduleType=Machine "%ProgramData%\ManageSoft Corp\ManageSoft\Schedule\Standalone Inventory Metering.nds""

Check Managed Device Logs

The Deployment Manager stores some log files in ‘{Windows}\temp\ManageSoft‘. However, not every log might be populated right after the installation as some schedules might not have run yet. Please wait a few hours after installation to check these logs.


Uninstall of the Agent

The agent can be uninstalled by normal procedures, like using system control panel Add/Remove programs or msiexec uninstall command.

Some individual settings, log files and inventory data may remain on the system.

For a full uninstall check the following locations for rest items:

  • Folder “{Windows}\Temp\ManageSoft”
  • Folder “{ProgramData}\ManageSoft Corp”
  • Folders “{User}\AppData\Local\Temp\ManageSoft”
  • Registry “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ManageSoft Corp”
  • Registry “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\ManageSoft Corp” on 64Bit-Windows
  • “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ManageSoft Corp” on 32Bit-Windows
