Supported Target Systems
- SNMP must be installed and configured on the remote Unix machine.
- SSH must be installed and configured on the remote Unix machine for certain optional components such as local accounts to be collected.
- When using SSH, appropriate credentials to access the required files on the remote Unix machine must be provided.
- To gather information such as manufacturer, model and serial number as well as BIOS and motherboard information SSH must be enabled, and dmidecode or smbios must be installed on the remote system.
NOTE: On Linux based systems (that use dmidecode) it is required that you use the root username and password or sudo can be used by following the instructions in
Using a non-root account for dmidecode.
NOTE: Certain Unix systems may by default prevent the logging on as root which will be reported as "A supplied password or user name is incorrect." Please see the documentation for your Unix system for more information.
Firewalls should allow access to the SNMP port on the remote machine which is by default UDP/161.
Firewalls can optionally allow access to the SSH port on the remote machine which is by default TCP/22.
Unix systems can be automatically detected and scanned by the network device search scan task.
