Running Discovery

After you configure discovery rules, you must run them to perform discovery. You can run discovery manually or schedule automatic discovery.

Running Discovery Manually

To run discovery manually:

  1. Log in to Veeam Availability Console.

For details, see Accessing Veeam Availability Console.

  1. 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.
  1. Select one or more discovery rules in the list.
  2. At the top of the discovery rules list, click Run.
  3. Wait until the discovery rule state changes its value from Running to Success.

Scheduling Discovery

Instead of running discovery manually, you can configure a schedule according to which discovery must be performed. In this case, discovery will run with a specified periodicity. If new computers complying with a discovery rule appear in the company network, Veeam Availability Console will add them to the list of discovered computers (and optionally, install Veeam backup agents and assign a backup policy, if the discovery rule is configured to perform these tasks).

To schedule automatic discovery:

  1. Log in to Veeam Availability Console.

For details, see Accessing Veeam Availability Console.

  1. 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.
  1. Select the necessary discovery rule in the list.
  2. At the top of the discovery rules list, click Schedule.
  3. In the Discovery Rule Schedule window, select Daily at and specify a schedule according to which discovery must be performed:
  • To schedule daily discovery, select Everyday. In the Daily at list, choose the time of the day when discovery must run.
  • To schedule discovery on specific week days, select Selected days, click Days and specify week days on which discovery must run, and click OK. In the Daily at list, choose the time of the day when discovery must run.
  1. Click Apply.
