Scheduling Discovery Tasks

Discovery tasks can be scheduled regularly to discover new devices from a live network and automatically add the newly discovered devices to your domain. By default, the task takes all devices in your current domain as seed devices to expand the discovery.

2.In the Domain Management page, click Schedule Task on the Start Page or select Operations > Schedule Task from the quick access toolbar.

3.On the Schedule Task tab, select the Enable check box for the Scheduled System Discovery entry.

4.Click Scheduled System Discovery, and then edit the discovery task by following the wizard.

Frequency — specify the execution frequency for the task. By default, it is once.

Network Settings — specify the proxies and credentials to be used to access devices in the discovery.
