Discovery of Windows 2012 Servers.

This Technical Document will provide guidance on how to discover Windows 2012 Servers correctly, and in the correct classification, i.e. in a two dimensional visualisation map.



For the Servers to be classified correctly, you will require Unicenter Network & Systems Management Release 11.2 Service Pack 2 Cumulative 1, plus associated published fixes; RO54735, RO54736, RO54737 and RO54738. All these fixes are required for Windows 2012 certification, and need to be installed.

Discovery of a Windows 2012 Server can then be performed via the DSCVRBE command using the argument:

'-23 WindowsServer_2012' classify the Server correctly.


Additional Information:

Published fixes required for the certification of Unicenter NSM r11.2 SP2 CUM1 with Windows 2012, and Windows 2012 R2, can be found on the CA Support Online website at the following links:
