Learn how to discover all database instances available within your enterprise network

Posted by Chad Pabalan on Jan 26, 2021 6:16:59 AM

Problem 

You are hired for a new job as a Senior DBA but the previous DBA who just left the company didn't provide the complete documentation of the existing database instances. You need to get a full overview of all instances, retrieve and document all the database instances available within the enterprise network. How could you accomplish this task? 

Have you ever found yourself in the situation where you have to take over the responsibility for a database server farmbut where documentation and overview is missing or you do not trust it to be up to date? You want to get a full overview of all instances, retrieve and document all the database instances available. How could you accomplish this task most easily? 

 

 

Solution

If you happen to run dbWatch Enterprise Manager or dbWatch Control Center, you are in luck. 

dbWatch is capable of tracking and listing all instances within a specified network range.  

dbWatch has a built-in Autodiscover feature for these situations, whether you need to create an overview from scratch, or you want to monitor your networks / subnets to see if new instances are added, then you can add all the discovered instances in your dbWatch monitor and group them accordingly. 

In this blog, you can learn how you can configure and automatically discover all instances within a custom network range which you will specify. You can also learn how to add the discovered instances in the dbWatch monitor.
