You can verify the Device Registration Service Web Service by using the DRS Service Tester utility (NSi.DeviceManagement.ServiceTester) located in the Service subfolder of the Device Registration Service installation folder (for example, C:\Program Files\NSi\Device Registration Service\Service\).

The Device Registration Service Web Client address formula for the Device Registration Service Web Client is:

Note: The default port for the Device Registration Service Web Service is port 8753. You can use the Device Registration Service Configuration Tool to change the default port.

To verify the presence of the Web Service and a registered device, enter the Service Address and Device Address, and then click Get Device Configurations. A device address in this instance may be either an IP address or a server name. You can specify the host computer name for the Web Service in the Optional Device Host box. The utility uses the host name to look up the device in the Device Registration Service repository if the specified Device Address is not found. If the device is not found in the Device Registration Service repository, an Object not found message appears. If the device is found, its properties appear.
