UIM - Probe Configuration Report


Article ID: 144099


Updated On:


DX Unified Infrastructure Management (Nimsoft / UIM)


Need help to get a report that can list details of the settings for the cdm probe for all the hosts. 

How can I generate a report of all probe configurations? 


  • Release: UIM 9.x, 20.x.x
  • Component: UIM - Infrastructure Manager


By default, each hub provides a 'Probe Configurations report.exe' in the bin directory:

...\Program Files (x86)\Nimsoft\bin


Choose the 'Probe Configurations report' and click the button to run it




Additional Information

This out of the box IM Report is limited for CDM, NTEVL,NTSERVICES, PROCESSES probes. 

Other than this out-of-the-box report you can check the Broadcom community for field-developed/custom solutions.

and a script that can be run as well:

--The following script will save each probes configuration by section->key->value into the Nimsoft database and the table probe_audit. If you have a small environment, this can be run from the 
-- NAS. If not, you will need to uncomment the nimbus.login and run it from the NSA.
