Changing discovery profiles

Use the Discovery drawer of the Discovery Management Console to change discovery profiles.

To change discovery profiles, complete the following steps:

  1. In the Discovery drawer of the Discovery Management Console, click Discovery Profiles.
  2. In the Discovery Profiles window, select the profile you want to change.
    The profiles are listed beside the Sensor Configuration, Access Control, and Platform Properties pages. If you cannot see the profiles, look for a splitter bar beside Sensor Configuration page. Use your mouse to move the splitter bar to see the list of profiles.
    When you select a profile, the details for the profile are displayed on the Sensor Configuration, Access Control, and Platform Properties pages.
  3. On the Sensor Configuration page, select a sensor and you can create, enable, configure, and delete sensors.
    When you configure a sensor, double-click the value that you want to edit. When you delete sensors, you cannot delete default sensors.
    Important: To save the edited value, click Enter. If you click OK after you edit the value, the change is not saved.
  4. On the Access Control page, you can add, edit, or delete access control entries for the discovery profile.
    Any access controls you set in the Access Control page override the access controls in the main access list.
  5. On the Platform Properties page, you can add, edit, or delete properties for a platform.
  6. Click Save.
