Agentless and Agent Discovery

Hi Team,

I have installed UCMDB/UD 10.33 along with the dataprobe. I have asked the customer to open the dynamic port range i.e. 1024 - 65535 for WMI and 22 for SSH. I  am planning to do the agentless discovery so my question will i get the all the software details if i do an agentless discovery? Can someone explain  me in detail as what are the benifits from agent discovery compared to agentless discovery.

Thanks and Regards

  • Hello Vinay,

    it's a neverending discussion around agent vs agentless discovery. It's even more interesting if you want to store your credentials in CyberArk if the admins are reluctant in providing credentials.

    In the end it will get to how simple will you be able to maintain the UDAs.

    The discovery results will be the same, UDA is considered still a shell like SSH or PowerCmd.

  • There is some disparity in discovery results between agent and agentless that is being addressed.  On example is the collection of Bios Version which is currently not populated for Unix or Windows CIs by agentless discovery but is by agent.
