Use the Command Line Interface feature to seed Auto Discovery .

To complete command line Auto Discovery,

  1. Go to Accessing the Command Line Interface if you have not already done so.

  2. Here is the auto discovery Command you need to enter: seedAD <network name> <device server name> <Discovery type> hostfile <credentials> 

  3. Make sure the format and syntax is exactly as shown in the following example. 

    cmd > seedAD Cust-1 devserver1 ping-sweep hosts "global:Acct-1,ppwd"


    • Discovery type can be one of the following:

    • ping-sweep

    • snmp-sweep 

    • Hostfile is a tab separated format, similar to /etc/hosts. See examples.tar in the $VOYENCE_HOME/tools/bulk-import directory to see examples.   

    • Credentials can be either global/network credentials.   

    • global - global credentials have a global: prefix.

    • Network - network credentials are those that belong to the network provided in the command

    If the credential names (in either global or network ) contains any spaces or other special characters, you must enclose the name using double quotes ( "). For example, if the global name is global: cred name , cred name2 , then the name would be entered as:

           "global:cred name,cred name2".
