Scan Jobs

 

In Deepser there are three different types of scanning, one for each type of protocol supported.

  1. SNMP: collect data from any type of device that supports the protocol
  2. WMI: to get the most detailed information possible about Windows devices and automatically deploy the Agent.
  3. Ping-Sweep: to identify devices on the network by monitoring their service status.

 

Ping-Sweep Scan Configuration

 

To configure a Job that performs a Ping-Sweep scan go to the System>Asset Configuration>Scan Job>Ping-Sweep section in the Deepser back-end, and click the ‘Add Ping Sweep‘ button at the top right.

At this point, the form for configuring a Ping-Sweep job will open.

 

 

Form fields have the following meaning:

 

Field Meaning
Name Name of the Job.
CRON Expression Cron Expression, it is present in every type of scan, allows you to define the run interval of the job.
IP Range In this field, you can define the range of IP addresses to scan. You can indicate:

•       One or more IP addresses

•       One or more ranges of IP addresses

•       One or more subnets, specified by CIDR notation

IP Range Exclusion In this field, you can define which IP addresses should be excluded from the scan. The compilation rules are the same as in the ‘IP Range’ field.
Remote Collector Through this Select, it is possible to declare which Remote Collector will execute the Job.
Create Device By this Select field, you can decide if you want to create in Deepser the Devices that represent the scanned IP addresses by marking them as ‘In Service’.
Change Device Service By enabling this option it is possible to change the service status of a device.

When a previously added device is unreachable, it will be marked as ‘Not in service’. This behavior also applies to the reverse case.

Status State. If ‘Enabled’ the Job will be sent to the Remote Collector to be executed.
Job Status Job execution status. It can assume the values ​​’Running’ during execution by the Remote Collector or ‘Stopped’.
Job progress Progress-Bar indicating the percentage of execution of the Job.
Run Now Once the Job has been saved, using the yellow button on the top right ‘Run Now’ you can run it immediately.

 

Once the Job has been configured and executed, the Devices found during the scan will be visible in the grid in the Asset>Device section in Deepser back-end.

 

SNMP Scan Configuration

 

To add a job that performs an SNMP scan, go to the System>Asset Configuration>Scan Job>SNMP section in Deepser back-end, and click the ‘Add SNMP‘ button at the top right. At this point, the form for configuring an SNMP Job will open.

 

 

Form fields have the following meaning:

 

Field Meaning
Name Name of the Job.
Port UDP port used by Remote Collector to communicate with devices. The default is 161.
CRON Expression Cron Expression, it is present in every type of scan, allows you to define the run interval of the job.
IP Range In this field, you can define the range of IP addresses to scan. You can indicate:

•       One or more IP addresses

•       One or more ranges of IP addresses

•       One or more subnets, specified by CIDR notation

IP Range Exclusion In this field, you can define which IP addresses should be excluded from the scan. The compilation rules are the same as in the ‘IP Range’ field.
Remote Collector Through this Select, it is possible to declare which Remote Collector will execute the Job.
ICMP Check Through this select field, you can decide to perform an SNMP scan only for IPs that are reachable by ping.
SNMP Version SNMP protocol version used to perform the network scan, options are:

•       SNMPv1

•       SNMPv2c

•       SNMPv3

Community For each device, the Remote Collector will attempt authentication using each of them (following the insertion order) until it gets a positive response. The community strings must be saved within the Deepser Password module.

Note: In case of the SNMPv3 version, the username that will be used will be the one set in the ‘Username’ field present in the record of the Password form.

Authentication Mode Only for the SNMPv3 version, it is necessary to set the authentication mode.
Auth Protocol Only for the SNMPv3 version, indicate the possible Auth Protocol.
Priv Protocol For the SNMPv3 version only, indicate the possible Priv Protocol.
Auth Password For the SNMPv3 version only, enter the Password if the selected Auth Protocol requires it. The Password must be stored within the Deepser Password module.
Priv Password For the SNMPv3 version only, enter the Password if the selected Priv Protocol requires it. The Password must be stored within the Deepser Password module.
Status State. If ‘Enabled’ the Job will be sent to the Remote Collector to be executed.
Job Status Job execution status. It can assume the values ‘Running’ during execution by the Remote Collector or ‘Stopped’.
Job progress Progress-Bar indicating the percentage of execution of the Job.
Run Now Once the Job has been saved, using the yellow button on the top right ‘Run Now’ you can run it immediately.

 

Once the Job has been configured and finally executed, the collected Devices will be visible in the Asset>Device section in Deepser back-end.

 

WMI Job Configuration (Windows Devices)

 

To add a Job that performs a WMI scan go to the System>Asset ConfigurationàScan Job>WMI section of the Deepser back-end, and click the ‘Add WMI‘ button at the top right.

At this point, the form for configuring a WMI Job will open.

 

 

Form fields have the following meaning:

 

Field Meaning
Name Name of the Job.
Type By this field, you can choose if the job you are configuring is a scan (‘Scan’) or the ‘Agent Deploy’.
CRON Expression Cron Expression, it is present in every type of scan, allows you to define the run interval of the job.
IP Range In this field, you can define the range of IP addresses to scan. You can indicate:

•       One or more IP addresses

•       One or more ranges of IP addresses

•       One or more subnets, specified by CIDR notationUno o più indirizzi IP

 

IP Range Exclusion In this field, you can define which IP addresses should be excluded from the scan. The compilation rules are the same as in the ‘IP Range’ field.
Remote Collector Through this Select, it is possible to declare which Remote Collector will execute the Job.
ICMP Check Through this select field, you can decide to perform a WMI scan only for IPs that are reachable by ping.
Password Specify one or more passwords to access devices.

For each device, the Remote Collector will attempt authentication using each of them (following the insertion order) until it obtains a positive response. Passwords must be stored in Deepser Password module.

Use LDAP Server This field indicates if an LDAP integration is needed.
LDAP Server LDAP server.
LDAP Server Password Password for authentication to the LDAP server.

The password must be saved within the Deepser Password module.

LDAP Filter Type You can set one of the proposed LDAP filters or specify a custom filter.
LDAP Custom Filter Custom LDAP filter.
Status Stato. Se ‘Enabled’ il Job verrà inviato al Remote Collector per essere eseguito.
Job Status Stato di esecuzione del Job. Può assumere i valori ‘Running’ durante l’esecuzione da parte del Remote Collector oppure ‘Stopped’
Job progress Progress-Bar che indica a quale percentuale di esecuzione si trova il Job
Run Now Una volta salvato il Job, tramite il pulsante giallo in altro a destra ‘Run Now’ è possibile eseguirlo immediatamente.

 

Once the Job has been configured and executed, collected Devices will be displayed in the Asset>Device section in Deepser back-end.
