SAP Central Services discovery

Discovery creates or updates a CMDB record when it detects a running instance of SAP Central Services (SAS).

By default, Discovery uses the SAP SCS Application to discover SAP Central Services.

For both Discovery and Service Mapping, see Service Mapping commands requiring a privileged user for a list of the commands that require elevated rights to discover and map Unix-based hosts in your organization.

Warning: DO NOT switch from probes to patterns if you are already running discovery with probes and your CMDB is already populated. If you do, it is possible that the pattern discovery process does not synchronize on the same values that the probe discovery process does. The result could be duplicate CIs in your CMDB.
