The scout can be run in different modes. Some modes require specific configuration on the command-line, the following table shows the command-line switches, their description and the modes they apply to.
|Modes||Applicable to all modes.|
The scout mode for the duration of the command. Values are:
- Configuration Manager –
- iQSonar –
- SqlWaste –
- Server –
More than one mode may be selected on the command-line by separating the values with commas.
|Currently, it is not advised to run multiple modes together. The results may not be as expected and the performance can be worse than running different modes sequentially. The only exception is the |
SQLWaste mode which currently is an addition to either the
iQSonar or the
Whenever the Scout is run in Server or
SQLWaste mode, you must provide a server list file for Windows adding the
Servers switch to the command-line or configure the
iQSonar mode with an appropriate iQDataHub location.
By default, if the
Modes switch is not set on the Scout command-line, it will run in all the modes that were selected during its installation.
|ApplicationConfigFile||Applicable to all modes||The configuration file to use for the duration of the command. By default, the Scout will use the |
Scout.exe.config file. For example, to change this to any other file on the command-line, run:
C:\Program Files (x86)\1E\ActiveEfficiency\Scout\Scout.exe ApplicationConfigFile=Scout.Alternate.Config
|NixServers||Server mode only|
Text file containing a list of Unix/Linux servers. To scan Linux servers, use the
NixServers command-line parameter and run:
C:\Program Files (x86)\1E\ActiveEfficiency\Scout\Scout.exe NixServers=<PathToLinuxServerListFile>
<PathToLinuxServerListFile> is the location of your text file. It must contain a list of FQDN server host names, one per line in the file. For example:
|Servers||Server mode only|
Text file containing a list of Windows servers to be scanned by the scout. To scan Windows servers, use the
Servers command-line parameter and run:
C:\Program Files (x86)\1E\ActiveEfficiency\Scout\Scout.exe Servers=<PathToWindowsServerListFile>
<PathToWindowsServerListFile> is where your file containing a list of Windows servers resides, including the file name. The file must contain a list of FQDN server host names, one per line in the file. For example:
