Hello,

 

Universal Discovery Protocol is used for communicating with UD agents. It's credentials consist of a set of certificates and keys to enable the secure communication between the Probe and the UD agent.

 

You can create a new credential in the Data Flow Probe setup. Please navigate to Data Flow Management -->Data Flow Probe Setup, under "Credentials" please select Universal Discovery Protocol. If no existing credentials are there, you can create a new one by clicking a "New" button on the toolbar. Then you can right-click on the credential and select "Export public certificates", specifying the diretory that will receive two cretificates/key files. These files are required for the agent installation if the agent installation is done manually, alternatively the agent can be installed using UD management jobs. 

 

Scanner based inventory can be done via the UD agent or it cn be done via agentless protocols (NTCMD or SSH). If these credentials are available, it's not necessary to deploy the agent unless software utilization data is required to be collected or some other agent capabilities are required (e.g. Call Home for better discovery of Client devices).

 

Regards,

Irina
