    Agentless mode: is it possible on UNIX machine ?

    Apprentice

      Hello,

      I have read the document http://community.landesk.com/support/docs/DOC-1177#

      Here is explained how do an inventory scanning without install the Agent for a windows machine.

       

      Is it possible scan an Unix machine without Unix Agent installation ?

       

      Thanks all.

          Yes, you can.

           

          Most of our Unix agent are just scanners anyway.

           

          For AIX, you could run the appropriate scanner from anywhere.

           

          For HPUX you would have to extract the .depot files to get to the scanner.

           

          For Solaris 9 you would have to extract the solaris packages to get the scanner.

           

          In Unix, you can basically run the files from anywhere.

           

          For Linux, you would have to extract the tar.gz files and then extract the RPMs.

           

          Be aware, you may still need prerequisite software such as compat-libstdc++3.xxx installed to make some of the scanners work.

           

          But if you put the files on an NFS share, you could really run the stuff from there for basic inventory.

            Is it possible to do an Agentless inventory without copy file in a local machine ?

            I will try to explain better.

             

            For Agentless Windows inventory I have to copy on a local machine these files

             

             

            database.dll

            elogapi.dll

            ldappl3.ini

            ldiscn32.exe

            libhttp.dll

            loc32vc0.dll

            processrunner.dll

            sqlite3.dll

            ygrep32.dll



             

             

            If I have to do it on 100-1000 machine I have a problem because I have to repeat the copy files.

            Is it possible put these file one time on directory shared and runs it from 100-1000 machines ?

            Is it posssible to do it for UNIX machines, too?

             

            Thanks for your support.

              For windows I didn't have problem, I have called in this way the remote EXE without install the Agent from DOS:

               

              \\10.40.32.201\ldlogon\LDISCN32.EXE /F /NTT=10.40.32.201:5007 /S=10.40.32.201

               

              I have seen all information about the machine after some minutes.

               

              How Can I the same thing in UNIX ?

              Have to I call the  ldiscan command ?

              Which  ldiscan ? Have to I share it on UNIX machine or Can I call it on Core Server ?


              Thanks
