Linux domain source

Jump to solution

Hi,

Quick question - on my Wintel devices .ndi file I can see (in WMI evidence) I can see the Domain ID

Is there a corresponding field in the Linux .ndi file?

Thanks

Related to this thread, check out the following page which provides some more detail around the FlexNet inventory agent gathering domain information on Unix-like operating systems: Known Issue: Computer domain is blank by default and does not reflect output from hostname/domainname commands in inventory & usage data returned by installed agent on Unix-like operating systems (IOJ-1832862)

The installed agent on Unix-like operating systems does not report a domain in inventory by default.

The domain that the agent reports against is configured in the ComputerDomain agent preference. See the following page as a starting point for information about this preference, including how it can be configured at the time the agent is installed: https://docs.flexera.com/fnms/EN/GatherFNInv/index.html#SysRef/FlexNetInventoryAgent/topics/PMD-Domain.html

Also see the following thread for some discussion and exploration around the subtleties of domain details on Unix-like operating systems: https://community.flexera.com/t5/FlexNet-Manager-Forum/Domain-name-in-Inventory/m-p/218880/highlight/true#M13868
