Windows Server Discovery by PowerShell, Shell, SNMP, WMI or all?

Is it recommended to use all methods available to discover Windows servers?  In our environment, we can use PowerShell, Shell, SNMP, and WMI.  I'm concnered if I don't use all methods, I could miss something.  But I'm also concnered using all methods could lead to issues.

 

Suggestions?

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

Well, each kind of discovery catch general and specific information. If you want to populate all the data, you can run all the discoveries, BUT, each one scheduled and not at the same time.

 

You should give it a try and do some tests to see how it behaves in your environment.

 

If you have issues you can consult with the support team.

 

I hope this helps.

In most cases, shell related jobs bring most info.

You can't get wrong with either NTCMD or PowerShell protocols.
