Operating Systems Supported in Auto-Discovery

Background: The Device42 Test Lab

We test on as many operating systems as we can get our hands on for agentless autodiscovery. This list is by no means exhaustive or exclusive but should provide a good starting point. As a general rule – if there’s an OS giving a customer trouble, we’re happy to try to build in support for it. Note all discoveries can be run without agents via the Device42 main appliance or can optionally utilize one or more remote collectors. Agentless Windows discovery requires that at least one instance of the Windows Discovery Service (WDS) be deployed somewhere on your network that can reach your desired discovery targets.

Major Linux distributions should all work well with auto-discovery, including: Debian / Ubuntu, Redhat / CentOS / Fedora, SuSe, OpenSuSE, etc. Most UNIX distros are well supported including AIX, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, HP-UX, and Solaris; other UNIX distros should also be auto-discovered (via SSH).

Major Windows releases (7, 8, 10, Server 2000+) are all supported, and should all work well with auto-discovery (via WMI/WinRM).
