Your best bet would probably be to run a script to pull that info and export it to a custom inventory. Then run your report on that custom inventory.


$strComputer = gc env:computername

$colItems = Get-WmiObject -Class "Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration" -ComputerName $strComputer -Filter "IpEnabled = TRUE"

function Mac {

ForEach ($objItem in $colItems) {



Mac|out-file "C:\temp\test.txt"

Custom Inventory:

ShellCommandTextReturn(cmd.exe /c type C:\temp\test.txt)
