HPUX discovery

Discovery identifies and classifies information about HPUX computers.


Configure SSH credentials.

For a list of privileged commands that you need for 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 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, probes, and pattern

Classifier Probes Pattern

(Unix classifier)

  • Horizontal discovery probe: launches patterns
  • HP-UX - Installed Software^
  • HP-UX - ADM^
  • HP-UX - OS Patches*
  • HP-UX - CPU Speed*
  • HP-UX - Total Memory*
  • HP-UX - Hardware Model*
  • HP-UX - CPU Info*
  • HP-UX - Identity*
  • UNIX - Find FQDN*
  • UNIX - OS Filesystems*
  • UNIX - OS Uptime*
HP-UX Server
*For new instances, these probes are inactive on the classifier. Discovery uses patterns for discovery.

^These probes remain active by default, even when Discovery uses pattern discovery.

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.
