Dell EMC OpenManage Essentials Version 2.5 User's Guide

Configuring the Discovery Wizard

The Discovery Wizard Configuration window enables you to configure the type of wizard you want to use for discovering devices. The options displayed in the Discovery Wizard Configuration window are described in the following table.
Table 1. Discovery Wizard Configuration. The following table describes the options displayed in the Discovery Wizard Configuration window.
Option Description
Standard Wizard If selected, the Discover Devices wizard displays a list of protocols for discovering devices.
Guided Wizard (default) If selected, the Discover Devices wizard displays a list of device types and the required protocols for discovering and managing the selected devices. After the required protocol configurations are completed, by default, this wizard runs both discovery and inventory.
  • NOTE: Discovery of storage arrays is not supported by the Guided Wizard.
Skip ICMP ping during discovery If selected, the ICMP Configuration settings will be disabled from the Discover Devices wizard. By selecting this option, ICMP ping is skipped during discovery and inventory of the devices, system updates, configuration and deployment tasks.
Discover the selected Device Types only

In OpenManage Essentials 2.5, this option is enabled by default. If selected, this option allows device-type discovery in the guided wizard.

  • NOTE: The device range that was discovered in the earlier version of OME may have discovered both chassis and iDRAC using WS-MAN protocol. In OpenManage Essentials 2.5, if Discover the selected Device Types only option is enabled in Discovery settings, then only the specific device selected in the guided wizard will be discovered and other devices are classified as unknown devices. For example: Selecting iDRAC device type with WS-MAN protocol will discover only iDRAC devices using WS-MAN protocol.
After you select the type of wizard and click Finish, the setting is saved in Settings > Discovery Settings .
By default, the Discovery Wizard Configuration window is displayed when you:
  • Launch OpenManage Essentials for the first time.

  • Click Add Discovery Range in the Discovery and Inventory portal for the first time.

If you want to configure the type of wizard you want to use for discovering devices at a later time, you can do so through the Discovery Settings page. For more information, see Configuring Discovery Settings .
