Understanding MAP 5.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • All-

    I am running MAP 5.0 RC1 at a client site and successfully ran the inventory and assessment wizard, even though 1/2 of my connections failed which I think had to do with many laptops disconnected from the network.

    So my goal is to determine which servers should be virtualized so I gathered all of the servers in a txt file and used "Gather Performance Metrics."  I ran this for 6 hours and upon completion, it again runs a "Connection Status."  So do the utility try to connect to those machines it failed against the first time?

    Yes.   Each time inventory runs, any machine in the database with a failed connection attempt will be retried.

    An inventory is executed at the completion of the perf gathering cycle implicitly (to pick up inventory for any new machines you might have put in your text file that haven't already been inentoried).
