Inactive Sybase Instances should be discovered

Customer would like to discover inactive middleware and database instances for business continuity planning and disaster recovery.

At the moment this feature is available for WebSphere discovery job. It can discover the details of the WebSphere application server and related domain, JVM, JDBC datasource, etc.

 

Per request I’ll open several different Ideas for the different SW (Oracle, Sybase,  SQL, DB2, PostgresSQL and WebSphere Application Servers, WebSphere MQ, WebSphere Liberty, WebSphere Message Broker, IBM HTTP Server, WebSphere Portal Server).

 

The primary use case is continuity planning. In a disaster scenario where the customer enters continuity mode, inactive database and middleware instances which are in cold standby will be spun up.

Once the instances are live they will be picked up by their standard discovery process.

Customer needs to identify the inactive standby instances as part of their disaster preparedness workflows, to perform maintenance on them while they are still inactive.
