Using RD Sensor

The easiest way to find an unmanaged computer in your network structure is to use RD Sensor. RD Sensor monitors the network in which it is deployed and when a new device without an Agent connects to the network it reports this information to the ECA.

The RD Sensor component cannot be deployed with ECA Live Installer. To deploy RD Sensor into your network, follow the RD Sensor Installation steps.

Drill down in the Rogue computers ratio report to the chart at the bottom of the Computers dashboard. Click the red portion of the graph or click the Rogue computers status to view the rogue computers.


The Rogue computers report on the Dashboard will list computers found by the RD Sensor. You can adjust the information reported by RD Sensor with the RD Sensor policy.

Computers found by RD Sensor can be added with the Deployment Tool. To do so:

1.Create a custom report template with these parameters :

oChart section: Table.

oData section: add column Rogue computers and select IPv4, IPv6 or Hostname.

2.Save the report template.

3.Generate the report from the custom report template and download the report in .csv format.

4.Use this list in Deployment Tool in Import list of computers option.


The results of the RD Sensor scan are written to a log file called detectedMachines.log. It contains a list of discovered computers on your network. You can find the detectedMachines.log file here:
