Discover Domain Controllers alternative when ldap protocol cannot be available

0 Votes

hi my customer   is not providing for security reasons the ldap protocol to go with OOTB discovery.

I found a way to go via shell or UDA.    Simply the idea is to read the  registry key

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ProductOptions\ProductType

 if the value is “Lanmannt”    this is a domain controller.  

I  created a custom adapter quickly....   (but R&D can , if they like it  include this in  a plugin of HRA)   and the results  have a perfect match with the expected results  of customer.

Lets move to the community for hearing their opinion. 

 It makes sense to include it into out-of-the-box jobs, but relying on registry is somewhat fragile – we see with other features Microsoft abandons populating some registry keys in newer versions of Windows, so the concern here is how reliable such discovery would be. At the very least it would have to be tested against all support versions of Windows Server.
