Table 1. Discovery Settings. The following table describes the fields displayed in the discovery settings page.
Field Description
Standard Wizard If selected, the Discover Devices wizard displays a list of protocols for discovering devices.
Guided Wizard 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 Dell EMC 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 OpenManage Essentials version 2.2 and earlier 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.
