Re: ?Re: Discovery ?

You need to do the following:


  1. Read the user guide (low blow I know but come on!)
  2. Set up read snmp community strings on the CMS (and all targets)
  3. Go to the discovery setup and enter the IP ranges you wish to discover.


If my post was helpful please award me Kudos! or Points :)

Re: ?Re: Discovery ?

Agreed with shocko - you have some reading to do... however, go see my post to another user here:




You have a lot of things to consider/configure (which you may already have done).  You need to decide on the protocols you want to use, ensure agents are installed on the server, and any SNMP/WBEM credentials/certificates.


The example is for Windows - for Linux you have some other things like SSH to consider, and others for VMware (WBEM).
