Node Credential and Alternate Credential Details for On-Premises Discoveries

Node credentials are provided when a discovery node is created, and you can modify them as needed. By default, the node’s credentials are used to enumerate scopes and access on-premises targets.

If you want to use different credentials for a particular discovery, you can configure them in the Discovery Wizard. By using these alternate credentials, you can target anything on-premises for which you have credentials, in any domain. You can minimize the permissions given to node credentials, and use alternate credentials for scoping and collecting your on-premises discoveries.

The following table outlines the use of the node and alternate credentials, and how to properly configure your environment to ensure successful data collection:

Discovery Node

Enterprise Reporter Server

Provide server with job status, errors, statistics and logs.

Configured during node creation, or when you edit the node properties to change the credentials.

The node credentials must have local administrator access to the host computer and be a member of the group “Reporter_Discovery_Nodes”.

Discovery Node

Shared Data Location (if the cluster is configured to use one)

Read and write to the shared data location during data collection.

The shared data location is configured during the creation of a cluster. Ensure the node has read and write access to this file share. For more information, see Things to Consider Before Creating a Cluster .

 

Discovery Node

Enterprise Reporter Database

There are two options for communicating with the database:

1. You can use the same service credentials that the node service uses.

2. You can specify SQL credentials only for use when the database is accessed.

The credentials you choose must be able to read and write to the database.

The account must be in the Reporter_Discovery_Nodes security group. (Note that if you use the same account as the Enterprise Reporter server it is already permissioned appropriately). For more information, see Role Based Security in Enterprise Reporter and Configuring the Database in the Quest Enterprise Reporter Installation and Deployment Guide in the Technical Documentation. 

If you use SQL authentication to connect with the database, you must manually permission the SQL user, either by adding them to the database role Discovery_Nodes_Role or by permissioning specific tables in the database.

Discovery Node

Targets

Read access on all targets.

For on-premises discoveries, all domains with which the credentials have a forest or domain level trust will be enumerated.

If required, you can configure alternate credentials for specific discoveries, instead of using the default node credentials.

 

The targets are defined as part of a discovery. The discovery tasks are assigned to a particular node based on availability, so all nodes in a cluster should have access to all targets defined in all discoveries assigned to the node’s cluster.

For on-premises discoveries, ensure the node credentials or alternate credentials have read access to the target. In addition, a trust is required between the node computer and the targets.

For more information on Azure and Office 365 Discoveries, see Detailed Permissions for Enterprise Reporter Discoveries .
