Workaround for ITO failed discovery of the IT Advisor server
WARNING! This operation will reduce security on the Data Center Operation server.
On the Data Center Operation server, to work around the security restrictions preventing ITO discovery:

For example, use PuTTY. You can download it from here.

If you reinstall or upgrade the server, you must perform the above procedure again.
