CompTIA Network+ N10-006 Q49

An administrator reassigns a laptop to a different user in the company. Upon delivering the laptop to the new user, the administrator documents the new location, the user of the device and when the device was reassigned. Which of the following BEST describes these actions?

A. Network map
B. Asset management
C. Change management
D. Baselines

Correct Answer: B
Section: Network operations

Documenting the location, the user of the device and the date of the reassignment would be part of the asset management.
The best way to keep track of your computers and their configurations is to document them yourself. Large enterprise networks typically assign their own identification numbers to their computers and other hardware purchases as part of an asset management process that controls the entire life cycle of each device, from recognition of a need to retirement or disposal.
