In order to discover virtual machines on the network, first you need to add at least one virtual machine type manually. See the article "How to manually add Virtual Machines to NodeGrid" for details.
Then, follow the steps below:
Access the NodeGrid via a browser and log in as admin user.
Go to Managed Devices :: Auto Discovery:: Network Scan page and click on Add button.
Enter a Scan ID and the IP range (start and end).
You can select/unselect the 3 options depending on how you want to discover your KVM devices:
You may want to change the scan interval or leave it the default 60 minutes.
Note: Similar Devices mean that all devices have the same credentials.
Now, go to Managed Devices :: Auto Discovery:: Discovery Rules, click Add, and follow the steps below to discover and add virtual machines to the NodeGrid Managed Devices.
Follow the steps below if you want to discover and add the VMWare Virtual Ports to the NodeGrid Managed Devices.
NodeGrid Manager is now configured with basic information and ready to discover Virtual Machines and/or VMWare Virtual Ports, and to accept users and connections to managed devices. You may want to wait for the Scan Interval, or click on Discover Now tab, select the VM Scan ID, and then click on Discover Now button.
