Database Server Instance Discovery

By default, Get-SEERegions cmdlet SEE discovers SQL Server instances and regions on the machine where it is installed (as part of the MicroFocus.SEE.PowerShell snap-in). This cmdlet is used by the SEE SCOM support to discover regions.

However, if it is not possible to have the MicroFocus.SEE.PowerShell snap-in installed on machines hosting SQL Server instances, regions can still be discovered on those machines using SCOM.config. This file is installed to %ProgramData%\Micro Focus\Enterprise Developer\5.0\SEE\config.

In this file, you configure the names of SQL Server instances on which you want regions to be discovered.

The following example configures the server instances mymachine\instance1 and mymachine\instance2 for region discovery.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="us-ascii"?>
    <server name="mymachine\instance1" />
    <server name="mymachine\instance2" />
