Re: Inventory using uCMDB vs Flexera agent

Thank for this.  So would you say that import from uCMDB is not recommended as such?

Re: Inventory using uCMDB vs Flexera agent

Hi,

There's more to consider. If uCMDB is already deployed and actively managed, why roll our a 2nd solution to basically collect the same data? Deploying the FNMS agent and keeping it deployed, including error tracking etc. is a considerable amount of work.

If there's special use cases, like Oracle DB inventory, or some Microsoft Server products, I guess the FNMS Agent might be worth it. Or perhaps a hybrid approach, deploying the FNMS Agent to servers and import the CMDB data? Why not start with importing from uCMDB, assessing the data quality and then decide from there?

Best regards,
