    How to discover disabled network adapters on windows hosts

      Customer has a requirement to discover all network adapters on windows hosts. From the platform script page I can see that BMC uses the query "SELECT * FROM Win32_NetworkAdapter" to discover network interfaces.

      Analyzing the result for a specific host shows that not all network cards are discovered. It looks like BMC is using some kind of condition to filter out network adapters. For example adapters it looks like networks adapters are skipped when the WMI attribute "NetEnabled" is false or null.

       

      Questions:

      1. Has BMC implemented a filter for network adapters on windows hosts?

      2. If the answer for (1) is yes, is it possible to change the filter?
