MID Server capabilities

MID Server capabilities define the specific functions of a MID Server within an IP address range.

Service Mapping uses capability to narrow the pool of MID Servers it uses.

At least one capability is required for each MID Server used by Orchestration. The base functionality enables an administrator to select specific capabilities for the probes launched by each MID Server. You can assign multiple MID Servers to the same IP address range and give them different capabilities, or assign a MID Server with specific capabilities to more than one IP address range. When Orchestration initiates a Workflow activity, Orchestration uses the IP address of the target machine to locate the MID Server assigned to that network segment that has the necessary capabilities to execute the activity.

The following capabilities are available for Orchestration:

  • SSH
  • SNMP
  • VMware
  • PowerShell
  • WMI
  • SOAP
  • REST
  • Resolve DNS

To configure a MID Server to work with Service Mapping, use ServiceMapping capability for it.
