Changing the Auto-Discovery Settings

Auto-discovery, in maxView Storage Manager, is enabled by default. The auto-discovery task runs in the background each time maxView Storage Manager is started. You can disable auto-discovery if desired, and configure the auto-discovery settings described below.

To change the auto-discovery settings on a system:

  1. In the Enterprise View, select a system.
  2. On the ribbon, in the System group, click System Settings.

    The maxView Storage Manager Agent Settings window opens for that system. The auto-discovery settings appear at the bottom:

  3. To enable/disable auto-discovery, select Enable Auto Discovery. (This option toggles between enabled and disabled.)
  4. Update the auto-discovery settings, as needed:
    • In the Auto Discovery Base Port field, enter the port number for the auto-discovery task. You can use any available port for auto-discovery. The default port is 34570. If you change the port, you must restart the maxView Storage Manager Agent for the change to take effect.
    • In the Auto Discovery Interval field, enter the number of seconds between each auto-discovery check. This number determines how often maxView Storage Manager checks for changes in remote system resources. The default is 360 seconds.
  5. Click OK to save the changes.
