How to use discovery_server version 8.x with CA UIM 7.6

DX Unified Infrastructure Management (Nimsoft / UIM)



There have been some issues with Discovery Server fixed in recent releases, but 8.x brings along with it UDM.

So, if we want to get the fixes but not introduce new problems, we need to tell Discovery Server not to publish to UDM.

Here’s how to do it:


1. In Admin Console or Infrastructure Manager, open raw configure for the discovery_server probe.
2. Under the Setup section, add a new section called “udm”
3. Under the udm section, add a new key called “publish_to_udm” with a value of “no”
4. After making the change, when Discovery Server restarts, you will see the following entry in the Discovery Server log file (at log level 3 or greater):

INFO  com.nimsoft.discovery.server.probe.ProbeInitializer - shouldPublishToUdm=false
In the discovery_server probe configuration file:
   loglevel = 3
   logfile = discovery_server.log
   expire_time = 30d
      publish_to_udm = no
