Softagent Platform Coverage for CA NDG Discovery

The following operating environments support candg (ndg) software installation:
catca1284
The following operating environments support 
CA Network Discovery Gateway
 (
CA NDG
) software installation:
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 (32-bit and 32-bit compatibility mode on 64-bit platforms)
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2012
The supported versions for VMware ESXi are 4.x, 5.0, 5.1, and 5.5.
The following table describes the softagent platform coverage for 
CA NDG
 discovery.
Legend
  • x = denotes the supported item
  • NA = item is Not Applicable for the given platform
  • *x = denotes supported on specific versions
  • *1 = Itanium only, not PA-RISC
  • *2 = get from cpu description
  • *3 = looks like just OS version
  • *4 = is "64-bit", should be PowerPC
  • *5 = only VMware related services
  • *6 = partial coverage
  • *7 = same for all interfaces
  • *8 = only Window 2008
  • *9 = not supported on Solaris VM
  • *10 = Supports SATA and IDE hard disk
  • *11 = Only RHEV name without the release information

Limitations
Softagent platform coverage has the following limitations:
  • On HP-UX platform, open ports are shown only if the LSOF utility is installed. Without the utility, you cannot obtain the information about the process that is associated with a specific port.
  • Dmidecode
    utility is required on the Linux platform to get the host details populated for a system.
  • MAC address of Solaris the non-global zones is same as Global zones. Because the MAC address is unique, MAC address against the non-global zones is not displayed.
  • You can only obtain service 'login as' information for Unix platforms for the services that are currently active.
