Movere should only be run by users with SSH access to the Linux devices to be inventoried. Linux devices can be scanned by providing the Movere Console with either a username/password combination or an SSH Private Key that permits access.
NOTE: While ‘root’ access is NOT required, if you have virtualized Linux devices, then certain data points, such as the universally unique identifier (UUID), used to link a virtual device to a physical host, will not be collected without root access.
Please note: When entering a username to access Linux devices with, even if the account is part of a Windows domain, only enter the account name. For example:
Correct: username | Incorrect: domain\username
‘Linux’ must also be specified as the account type. Movere will only attempt to access the Linux devices being targeted using the ‘Linux’ and ‘LinuxKey’ account types. If the account is entered as a Windows account, then Movere will ignore the account when a Linux scan is performed.
NOTE: SSH Private Key option is only available when ‘Linux’ account type is selected:
As mentioned above, when entering the username, even if the account is part of a Windows domain, only enter the account name. Your SSH Private Key can then be copied into the SSH Private Key textbox. While the Pass Phrase is optional, if one is required, enter it into the Pass Phrase textbox, then click Save. As you can see from the screenshot above, the account type will be ‘LinuxKey’ when an SSH Private Key is provided.
Please note: Movere only supports SSH Private keys at this time; OpenSSH keys are not supported.
