About this task

Discoveries of this type compare devices found in the network with CIs in the CMDB and update the CMDB, when appropriate. The Configuration item scan is the only type of Discovery that touches the CMDB.

Procedure

  1. Select Configuration items as the type of Discovery to run in the Discovery Schedule.

    This setting tells Discovery to launch the appropriate identity probes after classification has determined the class and operating system of the device.

  2. Configure the identity probes and probe sequence.
  3. Run Discovery.
