DiscoveryHarness.exe purpose

Hi!
Just to know and I was asked about it. ZCM 11.3.2. F-Secure on very restricted Windows 7 box "wants to know" to allow (or not) DiscoveryHarness.exe to get connection to internet. What purpose this exe is carrying and should/must we allow it to get connection it want to? (Well, name of file is pointing a way ... to think about.)
More thanks, Alar.

Re: DiscoveryHarness.exe purpose

Discover process in windows machines is initiated by DiscoveryHarness.exe which calls a C++ wrapper dll "NetworkDiscoverySharp.dll" which calls ScanRange API of NetDiscNet.dll .
ScanRange performs many tasks like Ping ,SNMP,WMI etc ,In the logs for some devices WMI task resulted in errors .
