A probe using the ECC queue topic name SSHCommand executes a shell
command on the target host, and returns the resulting output to the sensor.
Discovery supports Bourne Shell (sh) and
Bourne-again Shell (bash) commands. Enter shell script commands in the probe's ECC queue
name field. The shell script can use variables and file operations supported by the
target UNIX shell.
- The SSH engine is active by default on new instances.
- Customers on upgraded instances can manually enable ServiceNow SSH for a particular probe by
setting the use_snc_ssh parameter to true. Alternatively, enable it for all probes on the MID
Server by setting the MID Server parameter mid.ssh.use_snc to true.
To discover network devices, such as routers and switches, use SNMP credentials
credentials, not SSH credentials.
