Verification of OS

Command Line, SSH, Kerberized SSH, SCP, and Telnet adapters can use a <verify-os> element in the adapter configuration or in a dynamic target definition within the adapter request. This element determines whether the adapter must determine the target OS type soon after authentication is complete or a connection is established.

This element has a default value of true, indicating that the OS is verified. If the OS is verified, exit codes are returned by the executed commands. If the element is present with a value of false, the OS is not verified and none of the commands executed return an exit code.

The following figure shows an XML sample using the <verify-os> element in an adapter configuration.
