Protocol Based Discovery by Data Flow Probe

Hello All,

As per the documentation for HP uCMDB, the data flow probe works on the principle of discovery on the basis of protocol like SNMP, WMI, Telnet and SSH.

Apart from the ports required to discover the resources there are access rights required for the protocols for the discovery.

Can anyone please explain bit more about access rights required for protocols and how it will be leveraged during the discovery by HP uCMDB.

Thanks in Advance!!!

That's a big question.

Can you try to see if this helps?

Re: Protocol Based Discovery by Data Flow Probe

Hi Bogdan,

Thanks for the reply.

I have gone through the document, as I am new to HP uCMDB so from the document attached regarding the discovery jobs I understood there will be adapters (WMI, SNMP) on the basis of which discovery job will be created.

Do we need to provide some credentials while configuring the jobs which we can co-relate with access required for protocols.

Please let me know if I am going in thr wrong direction.

Re: Protocol Based Discovery by Data Flow Probe

Hi

For every Protocol you have to provide a credentials so that it can discover the device by that protocol.

Suppose you are going to use SNMP then for that you have to provide SNMP credentials in that you have to provide username and password or community string and port number and that needs to be enabled from that device for the probe so i can access the device and other detials depends on your configuration. GO through the data flow probe Setup. You will find each detail perfectly over there

Re: Protocol Based Discovery by Data Flow Probe

I presume you are using UCMDB 10.22 because you are calling it HP uCMDB .

On docs.microfocus.com you will find described the full flow of discovery based on credentials with all the prerequisites.
