Asynchronous and script-based discovery support

The Solaris computer system sensor supports asynchronous and script-based discovery.

Sensor configuration requirements

For asynchronous discovery, the sensor requires no configuration.

For information about configuring for script-based discovery, see Configuring for script-based discovery.

Access list configuration requirements

For asynchronous discovery, the access list is not used.

For script-based discovery, the access list configuration is the same as for a nonscript-based discovery.

Limitations
