Set up the Collector
You need to use the Collector (optional) if you are using multiple instances of Assets Discovery or if you need to transfer the Result-Data through different network segments (as shown in this Picture).
Setting up the Collector
To set up the Collector:
- Extract the Discovery package on the system where you will run the tool.
- Start a command prompt and move to the extracted Discovery folder.
Run the command prompt with Administrator privileges.
This will be required to write into the destination folder if you choose "C:\Program Files" or it will be needed to install the Collector tool as a service.
