UCMDB Tip :What file would be copied when running Host Connection jobs and Host Application job

Topic :

UCMDB Support Tip : What files are copied to target machines with Host Connection by Shell/WMI/PowerShell and Host Application by Shell/Powershell/WMI jobs?


Issue description:

In secured environments wherein all changes are tracked, it is necessary to find the source of files that are generated. In case of UCMDB jobs like Host Connection by Shell/WMI/PowerShell and Host Application by Shell/Powershell/WMI, what exact files are placed on the remote machine at the time of discovery from those jobs?



For the "by Shell" job, when using the NTCMD protocol, the only file that is copied is the hpcmdsrv.exe. Register this executable as a service and run it.

The service would like:

Service Name:  HPCmd Service

Service File Name:  %SystemRoot%\\SysWOW64\HPCmdSvc.exe

Service Type:  user mode service

Service Start Type:  demand start

Service Account:  LocalSystem


Also, for the WMI and PowerShell jobs, no files should be copied to the target machine as UCMDB just uses the Windows feature.
