Starting and stopping discovery

The status of the discovery process is shown at the top of the Discovery Status page. The discovery process can be in any one of the following statuses:

  • Running
  • Stopping
  • Stopped

When you start the discovery process, any runs that are on hold or waiting start the transition to In progress status. If a run is on hold but outside its scheduled window, it does not start.

When you stop the discovery process, any open, snapshot or scheduled runs in progress stop. The status changes to Stopping while the discovery process is stopping.

To start the discovery process

  1. From the main menu, click Manage > Discovery.
    The Discovery Status page is displayed.
  2. Click START ALL SCANS.

When the credential vault is closed, a passphrase entry box is displayed above START LOCAL SCANS. Enter the passphrase and click START LOCAL SCANS. The passphrase entry box is not displayed if the passphrase has been saved.

The screen is automatically refreshed to show the status of the discovery process.

To stop the discovery process

  1. From the main menu, click Manage > Discovery.
    The Discovery Status page is displayed.
  2. Click STOP ALL SCANS.

No more runs are started, and the discovery process attempts to stop all commands that are running. After the run has stopped, no more runs are performed until you start the discovery process.
