Automatic discovery is scheduled under the control of an ICF-TopologyManager program that is running in the IP Manager. The ICF-TopologyManager controls all aspects of discovery, including the scheduling of automatic discovery and the execution of manually invoked discovery requests.

After the initial discovery by an IP Manager, you can schedule automatic discovery at a regular interval and manually invoke discovery at any time. You perform these tasks through a Domain Manager Administration Console that is attached to the IP Manager, or from the command line by using the dmctl utility.
