Defining the asset discovery scanner
By default your master relay (or the first-level relay that was first installed) is automatically defined as the asset discovery scanner. But you can also define any other device on which the CM agent is already installed as your scanner. If you want to proceed with your current scanner you can skip this topic and continue with either Creating and running an automatic asset discovery scan of the main scanner's subnet or Configuring and running an asset discovery scan of a specific part of your network if you need to define a scan with specific parameters. Otherwise proceed as follows:
- Select the Asset Discovery node and then go to the Scanners node in the left window pane.
- Click Edit > Add Device
The Add a Scanner pop-up menu displays displaying the list of all devices that can be a scanner due to their operating system. .
- Select the device to be added from one of the list boxes.
- Click OK to confirm and close the window.
The device is added to the list of available scanners and its configuration parameter is updated.
