Introduction:
When attempting to discover the database, usually OOTB blueprint, you may encounter the following error:
CCA-DIS-8579: Failed to connect to remote database during discovery of the component blueprint

This is due to no or invalid database credentials within the blueprint itself
Instructions:
When discovering database blueprints, two things occur:
  1. Attempts to find the application, which includes, but limited to:
    • Install Path (File and/or Registry)
    • Application Folders and Files
    • Application Configuration Information (ex: ini files or command executables to obtain application settings
  2. Attempts to connect to the database being discovered using the specified credentials in the blueprint.  There are two ways to setup the credentials:
    1. If you have a user account that has the same username\password for all (or majority of) the database servers, you can modify the blueprint directly and enter in the username and password within "Component Parameters and Variables" --> "User Input" .  Saving this will have the account be applied to each discovery on first attempt
    2. If you have different accounts for the database server and/or database instance, then you would need to discover the database blueprint first.  Once that completes, you would see the error "CCA-DIS-8579: Failed to connect to remote database during discovery of the component blueprint" in the logs.  This is fine for the initial scan, from here, navigate to "Components' within the Server and select the discovered database component.  Expand to "Component Parameters and Variables" --> "User Input" and enter the username and password here.  Go back to the list of components, select the same component again and click on the top left menu for "Select Actions" --> Refresh Components. Thois refresh should pick up the actual database data once the scan is complete
