System Discovery

Is it required to have custom system discovery's setup and run in order to find new systems that come online? Or will SIM automatically find these on it's own without me running a new discovery? Thanks.

Re: System Discovery

Discovery is HP SIM's method of finding systems. There is no "automatically find" without Discovery.

Discovery comes in several forms: Automatic Discovery which is a ping sweep of a range or subnet. This can be scheduled or run on demand. You also can set HP SIM to perform discovery of a unit on receipt of an event. Many organizations put into their build process a final step to send an SNMP test trap to HP SIM so it is discovered when put into service.
