what the best approach to do discovery for unknown infra?

Hi ,

 


I'm new to UD and do like to ask what is the best way to do discovery if the asset in the infra are unknown. I had a list of ip range where I know my device are in there but as the asset is spread out across the ip range, I'm not sure which protocol i should used. what is the best approach I should take to do a basic discovery, like hardware details and ip address.

 

Regards

SoongWc

Hello,

 

What kind of hardware details are you looking for?

In general it would be recommended to use SSH and NTCMD protocols, as they will give you the most relevant results, at the same time opening the gate for future discoveries.

Alex

hi,
I'm looking at devices serial number, hostname, IP address, hard disk,ram, cpu, and if possible installed software as I'm using it as a discovery source for AM(asset management)

SNMP is a little less invasive and can get you some of what you seek.
