UCMDB Support Tip: What to be perform when Window 2008 server discovery problems with NTCMD
If running Window 2008 server discovery and encounter problems with NTCMD, with the following error message:
<log start="14:36:5" severity="warning">Process output stream: xCmd v1.01 for NT4/2000 - executes commands remotely Freeware! 2001 Zoltan Csizmadia Failed with error code:5 Access is denied. Remote service executable is deleted.</log> <log start="14:36:5" severity="warning">Process error stream is empty</log> <CONNECT start="14:36:5" duration="1033" CMD="client_connect" RESULT="" IS_NULL="Y" type="ntadmin" credentialsId="20861_1_CMS"> <ERROR class="java.lang.Exception"> <message>[CDATA: NTCMD connection: access is denied.]</message>
When the Probe Manager (or Probe Gateway, if running in Union/Merged mode) runs as a service, the service is automatically started by the local system account, which has nearly unlimited local authority, but very limited access to network resources (http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-us;126645). Since the NTCMD connection requires certain network privileges, the Probe Manager (or Probe Gateway) needs to be run in Console mode rather than as a service.
In order to address such discrepancy, please go to Start/HP and click on Start Data Flow Probe (console) and leave the command window open.
If you find this or any post resolves your issue, please be sure to mark it as an accepted solution."
