    Managed Planet Discovery Core


      So we recently had a meeting with a LANDesk sales rep and he advised of two things that need a domain admin account. 1. The schededuler (Which we use an account that has local admin rights on all of our machines) 2. Managed PLanet Discover Core (A service listed right under the "Landesk" services").


      My question is what is "Managed Planet Discovery Core" used for? Why does it need a domain account?


      Currently it is running as "LocalSystem".

          LANDesk data analytics used to be Managed Planet.


          The core scan processor service

          All of the Data Translation Services rules that are set to active are executed by the Data Analytics core scan processor service. The core scan processor service actually does the processing of the scan files.

          In order to process the scan files, they are moved to different directories:

          1. The LANDESK inventory service receives the scan file and puts it in the ManagementSuite\ldscan directory with an extension of .MP.
          2. The Data Analytics core scan processor service moves the scan file from the ManagementSuite\ldscan directory to the ManagementSuite\MP_TEMP directory and changes the extension to .SCN.
          3. All active rules are applied to the scan file.
          4. The core scan processor service moves the scan file from the ManagementSuite\MP_TEMP directory to the ManagementSuite\ldscan directory.
          5. The LANDESK inventory service processes the scan file into the inventory database.

          The core scan processor service processes multiple scan files simultaneously, by default, 10 at a time. You can increase or decrease this number with a registry value. Increasing the value can increase performance if Data Analytics rules spend a lot of time waiting for other resources, such as LDAP queries or other computers.
