how to get started understanding ucmdb?

I need to stand up a test version of ucmdb and get it discovering relationships between machines.

 

Where's the best place to begin learning the foundation of ucmdb to successfully stand it up and use it.

- uCMDB 10.20 --> Download

 

- Install the CMS ( you have 3 databse options.. oracle/MS SQL/ Postgress ) If you planning to use it for test, start with postgress database. it supports  up to 12 million CI discovery.

 

- Install uCMDB probe. if test, you can install it on the same machine

 

- login in to console http://ucmdb server ip/hostname:8080/ucmdb-ui/applet/applet.jsp?null [ admin / admin ]

 

- After sucessfull login, go to Dataflow Management --> Dataflow probe Setup, select the probe you installed and add the IP ranges you want to discovery.  Also add the required credentials ( agentless [ ssh, ntcmd, telnet.. ] ) 

- Click on zone based discovery from Universal Discovery. Create a management zone with * , add the probes to the zone and enable your discovery jobs.

you need to get a agentless account with permissions to run commands and you need to input the account details in dataflow probe setup --> Domains and Probes --> <Domain..> --> Credentials.

 

There are options available to test agent based discovery, where you need to install UD agents with a certificate created from UCMDB.

In what  cases , one need to use Agent based discovery ? but  can one use  default admin login to login to the UI and then add their windows account details to credentials on the UI?
