Unmanaged Detectorf with 2 NIC's?

Created: 11 Jan 2013 • Updated: 11 Jan 2013 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Has anyone tried making a PC with multiple NIC's (connected to different subnets) a Managed Detector?

Could such a thing be done, so that (for example) I could have 1 PC with multiple network card connected to each subnet, and the Unmanged Detection would occur over all connected subnets?

 

 

Thank You,

Kevin Murphy

It's the SEP client that does this and I don't think it would recongnise multiple IPs. I don't believe this has been tested although you could try it. I don't see how this would work though.

I didn't know if it would accept gratuitous ARP requests on all available adapters. If it worked, it would allow one computer with multiple NIC's to detected unmanaged machines on each subnet it was connected to.

This would get around the requirement of designating seperate machines, one for each subnet.  But the best part is that instead of just reducing the number of UD's, you could have more than one looking at all subnets as a means for redundancy.

Maybe this should be an enhancement request?

It makes sense, I just don't know if it would work or if it has been tested. It's a pretty simple and quick way to find unmanaged clients and don't think it was intended for this. A feature request would not hurt though.
