About this task

During the discovery process, the MID Server runs Service Mapping and Discovery patterns on applications and devices located inside the organization network. A pattern is a sequence of operations whose purpose is to establish attributes of a CI and its outbound connections. To execute commands over PowerShell correctly, MID Server runs patterns as services using the rctrlx.exe file. The rctrlx.exe file is part of the open source ManagePC utility and is available for downloading from the Internet.

You must upload an rctrlx.exe file for every MID Server in your deployment.
