Windows 2000 discovery

Jump to solution

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for a little help and assistance around how potentially I could discover two legacy Windows OS using Host Connection by Shell followed by the Agentless Inventory Discovery for Windows NT/2000 OS types. Our network has a number of these devices so its not a simple matter of just upgrade the OS. At the same time we are running UCMDB v10.20 CUP1 at CP16. This means Windows 2000 is not supported by the CP level after it stopped after CP10 after being informed by Support.

This doesn't stop my need of not discovering these servers as I need the data to pass onto our Asset Management system. So I need to understand how I can get Windows NT and 2000 devices with full inventory data passed into UCMDB. If anyone has any ideas please let me know.

Thanks,

Dave

Hi ,

This thread will help on this concern: https://community.softwaregrp.com/t5/UCMDB-and-UD-Practitioners-Forum/How-discovery-windows-NT-in-UCMDB-10-30/m-p/219283#M30

Aslong netbios is working you can discover windows NT devices isomg NTCMD protocol in UCMDB.

It uses the following ports: UDP Ports 137 (netbios_ns), 138 (netbios_dg) and TCP 139 (netbios_ss) for SMB access.

We have very little windows NT devices left so we are migrating everyring to powerCMD protocol in the discoverys (using the NTCMD discovery jobs but access the servers using powershell instead of NTCMD). "

 

Best Regards,
