UCMDB Tip : Where are the IP ranges for the probes stored?

Where are the IP ranges for the probes stored?

Is it possible to track when someone makes a change to the list of IPs configured for a probe?

Is this information stored in a database table or a file on the uCMDB server?




The IP ranges are stored in a special discovery configuration file called Domain Scope Document (or DSD for short). 

Like all other resources, it is stored in the UCMDB (in the Database) and as a file on each of the probes.  Please look for DomainScopeDocument.xml under the probe's runtime folder. 

Also like all discovery configuration files, you cannot change them directly from the probe's file system. 

The DSD can be changed either using the Probe Setup UI or the JMX method importRangesAndCredentials.

The ranges are stored in the domain scope document. 

There is a JMX method to export it so it won’t be encrypted (Discovery Manager -> exportCredentialsAndRangesInformation
and a Java SDK method to get the ranges (DDMConfigurationService.getDiscoveryConfigurationXML).


The ranges alone specifically are not stored anywhere in the DB, and are not accessible via any other means.
