Allow client to pull inventory information without PXE booting
It would be helpful for the client to be able to pull and report inventory information on machines without needing them to reboot.
I am deploying the client to machines that are already out in the field to get them into my host list for later. Forcing a reboot is disruptive to the current users, and right now I can’t even use the PXE inventory task as they aren’t set for PXE to be their primary boot device. adding this feature to the client would be really helpful.
