Windows discovery Discovery identifies and classifies information about Windows computers. Supported operating systems Windows 2008 Server Windows 2008 Server R2 Windows 2012 Server Windows 2012 Server R2 Windows Cluster VIP Note: For fiber channel discovery on a Windows 2008 host, the Microsoft Fibre Channel Information Tool (fcinfo.exe) must be installed on that machine. The fcinfo executable should be available on the environment path. The Microsoft Fibre Channel Information Tool tool is available for download at http://www.microsoft.com. The Windows classifier supports the following Windows workstation operating systems: Windows 7 Windows 8 Windows 8.1 Windows 10 Configure Windows credentials. The user configured in the credentials must have local admin access to the Windows machine. The credential that you configure must have the following: Access to the WMI service to the current namespace and sub-namespaces. Access to the Powershell service. Membership in the Distributed COM Users local security group. Discovery can identify and classify Windows Computers. Table 1.

The Windows registry Discovery can find software that has been installed on a Windows machine by looking at the Windows Registry. Discovery can find the following attributes of discovered software: Product Name, which is a combination of name and version, such as Windows Imaging Component 3.0. Name, which is the name of the product only without the version. Version Uninstall String, such as C:\Program Files\Notepad++\uninstall.exe Part of, which is the update that this a part, such as Windows Internet Explorer 8 - Software U. Install Date Installed on, which is the name of the asset it is installed on. Windows server cluster discoveryDiscovery establishes the relationships between a Windows server cluster and its nodes.
