    SESS w Unmanaged Devices

      We just upgraded to 2017.3 and was curious, is there a way to leverage SESS subnets to handle UDD + Agent install without having to manually create all the subnets in the UDD module?

          Hi,

           

          at the moment, both modules are separated from each other. However, maybe you can drag a device that was discovered through agentless scanner on an agent deployment task. I never tested it but it’s worth a try…

          Maybe you can create an enhancement request to move a discovered subnet with right mouse click from SSES to UDD…could be a nice feature…J

           

          Kind regards

          Christian

            Yeah, the main thing was just having to manually created all of the subnets, and also the upkeep of that. Was hoping that with SESS automatically pulling that in, we could point UDD at that list of subnets and say, "here's out list, now go install on non managed machines"

              Well, you can... sort of...

               

              First you need to enable XDD on the subnets you need UDD on. XDD basically lets a representative on that subnet check for Unmanaged Devices, using ARP. This will feed your UDD list.

               

              Second, configure Agentless Scanning on the same subnets. There are some good articles here on the community on how to do that. It will let the chosen subnet representative run an Inventory Scan on the discovered XDD/UDD devices using credentials you configure in the tool.

               

              Finally, those devices will turn up in your network view under Agentless Scanner. They have a full inventory and one of the attributes is Computer - Agentless

              You can now create a query to list all devices that have this attribute set to '1' (Agentless inventory is 'yes').

              Now schedule the deployment of the agent. Add the query to the task and set to run every so many hours (2018.1 feature) or once per hour/day.

               

              You should now have a recurring task that picks up new unmanaged devices automatically.
