ucmdb

differnce between datacenter and client type in dataflow probe setup.

ideally when is the client type is used --- is it for enduser -- we are facing an issue where if client type is selected then end user systems are not discovered.

Re: ucmdb

Hello,

Data Center

For permanent or long IP address lease times. This type is suitable for environments that have the following characteristics:

  • IP addresses are stable due to long lease times or due to the consistent availability characteristics of the nodes and network 
  • Nodes connect to the network using the same interfaces due to a single access technology 
  • Few or no mobile users 
  • Single domain environment 

    Datacenter means the devices with relatively stable IP address, such as server, database, etc. The user must be able to know if any ip change happen in their environment and can do manual manipulation on UCMDB.


Client. For short IP address lease times. This type is suitable for environments that have the following characteristics:

  • IP addresses are not stable due to short lease times or due to the inconsistent availability characteristics of the nodes and network. 
  • Nodes connect to the network using different interfaces due to multiple access technologies. Therefore, the same IP address is bound to different interfaces at different times. 
  • Mobile users access the network from different domains in a multi-domain environment.

    Client means the devices without a bind IP address. This kind of device usually requests a dynamic IP to the DHCP server when connected to the network.

Unni

Re: ucmdb

thanks for your response.

We have used type client for the Desktops/Laptops which does  not have a static ip but the issue is in the range specified if there are new ipaddress which are connected to a desktop this is not being discovered at first instance.

we are not using scanner instead using other option. is there any connection to the same as to why client are not being discovered.

Re: ucmdb

Hello,

Please raise a support case to troubleshoot this issue in detail as we need to verifythe IP range that you have specified and errors, if any, that are recorded in logs.
