Discovery using Screen Scraping

You can discover a little bit of information about things like ILO Cards, Printers and other devices by looking at the management web pages that they display.

Given suitable regex and attribute destinations UCMDB could harvest that data without requiring credentials.

This takes you from: this IP responds, but we don't know what is on the end of it to: this IP belongs to a Dell Integrated Remote Access Controller 7. Not a vast information, but a lot better than what you started with.
