If vRealize Operations Manager does not discover objects after an adapter instance is configured, use manual discovery. Discovering objects is more efficient than adding objects individually.
Where You Find Discover Objects
In the menu, select Administration, then click in the left pane. Click Discover Objects in the List tool bar.
The Discoveries section of the describe.xml file for the adapter might include parameters for discovery information. The describe.xml file is in the conf subfolder of the adapter, for example xyz_adapter3/conf/describe.xml.
|Collector||Collector that vRealize Operations Manager uses to discover objects. Only the vRealize Operations Manager Collector is added during installation.|
|Adapter Type||Adapter type for the objects to discover.|
|Adapter Instance||Adapter instance of the selected adapter type.|
|Discovery Info||Selection depends on the adapter type. For example, for a vCenter adapter, the Discovery Info selection adds an option to discover objects of a particular object type.|
|Only New Objects||On by default, to omit objects that are already discovered.|
