  • VCM and SQL Data Base 2010/2012

    This is the scope: We are engaged in the cleanup of our systems with the sole purpose of checking and remediateing vulnerabilities in all our servers. We will continue with the process in the whole enterprise. We have a VCM as well as many other ITSM and inventory tools. They have been in place for some time so do their widespread lax security. Our new security paradigm will arrive as soon as I get my grips on this, to this end I must seek your advise.

    First to start the cleanup I had to build a database which will enable me to organize the raw data (bad one) I exported from VCM for further investigation and analysis. Moreover, I can compare it to other Inventory tools like ITI, ECM and HPsim. I hope to get valid information by the end of the exercise. Note that I developed a variance of which tool seems to be reliable and accurate in finding valid servers as it is in this case.

    My problem is this, my database is static: This means that I have to go to VCM to capture and export data just to get an up to date inventory. This is not funny. I will like to find out how to integrate our VCM with the SQL database 2012 I built. If you know how please let me know. I just want my SQL database to be dynamic and in tune with the VCM. This can greatly assist me with my work.

    Thanks.

    hi jumezurike,

    Please don't cross-post the same query into multiple subforums - it won't hasten an answer. Also, if the other users are anything like me, they just use the "new posts" thread and don't bother with subcategories

          I've no idea how this is related to VMware, or are you talking about vCenter Configuration Manager?
          Actually I don't quite understand your post earlier..

            I am talking about the VCM (vCenter Configuration Manager). If you can help go ahead and do that. All I will like to do is to have the DB of VCM work with my SQL database.
