Trying to discover Windows2012 R2 Server


Trying to discover Windows2012 R2 Server

SNMP Service and Trap is installed and running.  Looks like I am missing SMNP Foundation Agent, or WBEM.  Do I need both of these?  Where do I find them?

What is the hardware type ? If it's a Gen8 or hogher you need to install the Agentless Managmenet Agent. This software can be found here :


For this to work corectly you also need to configure SNMP on the ILO. If your server is a Gen 7 or earlier you need to install the WBEM agent, the SNMP agent is the older agent and the WBEM is preferred. The WBEM agent can be found here :


You would also need a System Management Homepage on the older servers, this can be found here :


Hope this helps for you. If you need more info on configuring let me know.



Kind regards,
