ServiceNow Behaviors enable the
efficient Discovery of SSH and SNMP devices
and WMI devices running on multiple Windows
domains, using multiple MID Servers.
For example, an organization has two Windows
domains in its network and a variety
computers and SNMP devices. The
challenge is to discover all the devices efficiently, without duplicating effort. Each domain
MID Server which is used
to scan the IP addresses from the two domains specified in the Discovery
Schedule, as well as the SSH and
SNMP devices. We need a Behavior that divides the work appropriately to avoid scanning anything
twice. In this example, we assume that both domains are in the same geographical location, and
that a single schedule is sufficient.
The preferred method for running Discovery
over multiple Windows domains is to
, which allows a single MID Server to authenticate on machines on different
domains using credentials stored on the instance.
