Re: workstation primary IP Address

Hi, You have to perform "Inventory Discovery By Scanner" Job to populate PrimaryIPAddress attributes.

Re: workstation primary IP Address

Hi Annindya,

 

The required protocol for "Inventory Discovery By Scanner"  is: SSH Protocol, NTCMD Protocol, Universal Discovery Protocol and PowerCmd Protocol .

ay infrastructure discovery for the workstation i tried to use NTCMD, PowerCmd and WMI.

its succuss only with WMI, so i cant run "Inventory Discovery By Scanner" 

i have only WMI on workstation righ now.

Re: workstation primary IP Address

HI,

Can you post the error when you tried with NTCMD protocol. To perform discovery using NTCMD, you need configure probe service with local service account. 

past the error from host connection by shell jobs. else you have one option using agentbased discovery

Hi Abdullah,

You can add WMI protocol under inventory discovery adapater to make this happen. Try once.

Re: workstation primary IP Address

Inventory scanner won't work over WMI as the scanner binary needs to be executed on the host.

An interesting approach is SSH. Yes, SSH is supported for Windows discovery for some time but this feature went largely forgotten and unknown.

If you can procure the rights to deploy the SSH server on the remote Windows node then we have the documentation of how to achieve this in a supported manner.

Re: workstation primary IP Address

Hi John,

you know what is needed to be able to successfully discover windows servers with the ssh protocol,
it would be quite useful documentation how to achieve this compatibility, I have always had problems in the discovery of servers with Windows operating system nt / 2000 and it would be a good attempt.

thanks,

Bolonia.

Re: workstation primary IP Address

This was discussed before at https://community.microfocus.com/t5/CMS-UCMDB-and-UD-User/For-discovering-Windows-servers-which-protocol-do-you-prefer/td-p/227280

You can deploy a SSH server on that Windows machine, change the connection order in globalSettings.xml (Adapter management) so the ssh protocol is first used and voila, Host Connection by shell will work.
