To remove from the Discovered Computers list computers that were found with a discovery rule, you can reset discovery results. For example, this can be required if you improperly configured a discovery rule, discovery results display more computers than expected, or discovery results include computers that must not be protected with Veeam backup agents.
When you perform reset for a discovery rule, computers discovered with this rule are removed from the discovered computers list. However, computers on which Veeam Availability Console management agents are already installed and configured to communicate with Veeam Availability Console will be moved to the list of computers discovered by the External Discovery rule.
To reset discovery results:
- Log in to Veeam Availability Console.
For details, see Accessing Veeam Availability Console.
- Do one of the following:
- [For Service Provider Global Administrator, Service Provider Administrator] In the menu on the left, click Discovery.
- [For Service Provider Operator] In the menu on the left, click Rules.
- Select one or more discovery rules in the list.
- At the top of the discovery rules list, click Reset Discovered Computers.
The number of computers discovered with a rule will be set to zero, and computers that do not run management agents will be removed from the list of discovered computers.
