Re: (UCMDB SUPPORT TIP) - What to do to enable discoveries

Hi Ana, 

Thank you.
It would be useful to share the ports that are used (and I do not mean the same document as always), protocols are always mentioned but there will always be some confusion, especially those who are not very expert in windows administration.
For example, the use of the NTCMD protocol generally involves port 135, and this in many cases does not open it for security.
There are cases in which the WMI protocol is discovered, but it turns out that NTCMD or Telnet was needed, or to know which is the best practice to make discoveries, with agent or without agent (protocols / ports).

Bolonia.
