When the vRealize Hyperic agent discovers all of the resource properties required to monitor a resource, it starts monitoring that resource as soon as you add it to inventory. This is the case for most resource types.

About this task

However, some level of configuration is required to start managing some resources types. You can process the contents of the Auto-Discovery Portlet in these ways:

  • To import all resources---leave all resources selected, and click Add to Inventory.

  • To skip all resources---leave all resources selected, and click Skip Checked Resources.

Procedure

  1. To import all resources, leave all resources selected and click Add to Inventory.
  2. To skip all resources, leave all resources selected, and click Skip Checked Resources.
  3. To import selected resources, either:
    • Clear the checkboxes for the resources that you do not want to add to inventory and click Add to Inventory.

    • Clear the checkboxes for the resources you do want to add to inventory and click Skip Checked Resources.

Results

When you do not import a resource displayed in the Auto-Discovery portlet:

  • You skip its servers, too.

  • During the next platform scan, skipped resources will reappear in the portlet after the next scan that detects them. If you have resources that you do not want the agent to discover, see the relevant section in the vRealize Hyperic Administration Guide.
