Microsoft IIS server discovery

Discovery identifies and classifies information about Microsoft IIS servers.


Install IIS Management Scripts and Tools on a Microsoft IIS Server.
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 so, it is possible that the pattern Discovery process does not synchronize on the same values that the probe Discovery process does. This could result in duplicate CIs in your CMDB.

Classifier, pattern, and probe

Discovery uses these classifiers, probes, and patterns for IIS discovery:
Classifier Trigger probes Pattern
Microsoft IIS Server
  • Horizontal discovery probe: launches patterns
  • Windows - Get IIS Information*
*Probes inactive on new instances.

To use patterns, verify that the correct pattern is specified in the horizontal pattern probe on the classifier. See Add the Horizontal Pattern probe to a classifier for instructions.
