From within the Ivanti EPM Console, one of the more useful features is the ability to right-click a machine and perform administrative tasks.
Some of these tasks are:
- Request an inventory scan
- Wake up a machine
- Shut down a machine
- Request a Security scan
When one of these options is selected the Ivanti EPM console makes a call to IIS and passes the command line parameters to the core.secure/corerequest.asmx page.
The URL for this page on the core server is:
This page is seen here being accessed from the core server.
Each command requires a client-side identifier, this can be the Machine GUID (found in the registry under HKLM\Software\Landesk\Common API) or the machines IP address.
If the right click commands fail to run, check the following.
- Can theCoreRequest page be browsed from the Console running the commands?
http://[core server name]/landesk/managementsuite/core/core.secure/corerequest.asmx
- Verify that the command is being sent from the core server.
On the core server under the \\[Your Core Server]\LDMAIN share the raxfer.log file will store the attempt to run the remote execute.
