Solaris/ESX node displays HP-UX during Auto Discovery

Postby tryoung1987 » Thu Jun 14, 2018 2:09 pm

All,

I am new to Nagios XI and ran some of our subnets through "auto discovery." I have all my Solaris and ESX nodes showing in XI as HP-UX 11.11-11.23. Does anyone have any idea why?

Nagios XI uses NMap for the OS Detection. It is just a best guess at what the OS is.
