Issue/Introduction

When we discover a server with credentials or even in robots, the information of OS Name displayed in the Operator Console only includes the Kernel name but not the Linux OS Description

Is there a way to view on Operator Console the information of redhat-release after discovery?

 

Cause

Working as designed

Environment

Release : 20.3

Component : UIM - DISCOVERY_SERVER

Resolution

Whether you discover a Linux server using discovery_agent or installing a robot, the default behaviour in UIM Operator Console is displaying the Linux Kernel for the specified version.   This is also the case for IM, the Linux version OS description correspond to the Kernel version

 

This default behavior is not configurable. 

If you'd need additional information displayed in the UI you can use the Alias Function in OC:

Example: (click on the pencil and edit the alias)

Additional Information

The alias displayed in OC Device Details comes from:

select * from CM_COMPUTER_SYSTEM_ATTR WHERE cs_attr_key = 'displayAlias'
