How do I Create, Edit, Delete and run a discovery job in ProSphere?

Hi,

Discovery jobs determine how and when ProSphere discovers and collects data from the resources in your SAN. In a discovery job you can specify the IP addresses that you want the system to scan in order to detect undiscovered objects. The following describes how to create, edit, enable or disable, run, and delete discovery jobs. (For more Information review the ProSphere Administrators Guide)

************************************************************************************

Create a discovery job

To create a discovery job, follow these steps:

  1. Click Discovery in the area navigation bar to navigate to the Discovery area of the ProSphere Console.
  2. Click the Discovery Jobs tab to display the Discovery Jobs view.
  3. Click Create Job. The Create Job wizard appears.
  4. Select or enter a job name and description for the new job in the Job Information step of the wizard. Select Enable Job to tell ProSphere to execute the job. If you do not select Enable Job, ProSphere will create the job but not execute it. Click Next to continue.
  5. In the Set Scope step of the wizard, select resource types to detect (for example, arrays, hosts, and switches) and IP addresses and address ranges to INCLUDE and EXCLUDE in the discovery process for the job. Click Next to continue in the job creation process or Back to return to the previous step.
  6. In the Select Access Credentials step of the wizard, you can choose to use global access credentials for the job (select Use Global Access Credentials) or to use one or more predefined sets of access credentials (clear Use Global Access Credentials). If you choose to use predefined access credentials, select each credentials set in the Available Access Credentials List and then click Add to add them to the job process. Click Next to continue in the job creation process or Back to return to the previous step.
  7. In the Set Schedule step of the wizard, select a Start on date and time for the job. Select Make this schedule recur every and set a recurring schedule to make this discovery job a recurring event.
  8. Click Finish to complete the job creation process or Back to return to the previous step. If you click Finish, the new job appears in the Discovery Jobs view.
