We are looking for a probe that would allow us to pull IP config information from system.
What we are looking for is to pull the DNS settings of all servers.
Does anyone know of a way this can be done.
If you can get the information you want via the command line, you could use the nexec probe. You would have to preconfigure the probe with a profile that specifies the command, and then you can invoke a callback to run the command and return the output.
If there is no command that gets you the information you want but you know how to write a script (maybe in PowerShell) to retrieve it, you can push that script out from the distsrv with a package and configure the nexec probe to run the script (even in the same package).
Where would this output be stored, would it be on the local server or in nimsoft were it could be easily viewed? Need to pull this info for 1000+ servers in different data centers so would need and easy way to collect the output.
PS. Thank you for the quick reply and help
When you invoke the run_profile callback on the nexec probe, the response includes fields for stderr and stdout. The output is not being stored anywhere by the nexec probe; it returns it to you. So if you write a script to contact the nexec probe on all of your robots, it would get the output back from each request.
