UMP Auto discovery scopes quick configure?

    Is there a text file somewhere that I can edit to add scopes to the auto-discovery agents (found in the Remote Admin section of the UMP)?  I've already put about 30 Class C subnets into a scope, and I'm having issues getting that to work; as a test, I'd like to remove all but one and see if I can get it respond.  But I don't want to remove all the scopes and then have to add them back in manually.  I attempted to remove them from the discovery_agent.cfg file, but it seems like the UMP puts them back in place when you restart the discovery_agent probe.  So is there somehwere else to adjust that information?

     

    This would also help since I have about 100 (maybe more) scopes to add in.  Added them all in the UMP is pretty time consuming, if there was a flat file somewhere that I could edit, it might make the process quicker.

     

    Thanks.

    I'm looking into this for you.

    Should be stored in the database table just not sure which table contains this.  One of the CM_ tables would be my guess.

    Scope information is held in the SLM database in the CM_DISCOVERY_NETWORK table.  I've not tested this, but if you modify this information and then restart the discovery components you would be able to accomplish what you describe. 

    I think the bigger issue might be the scale at which you are trying to discover.  Have you looked into providing more specific ranges by using a limited amount of credentials assigned to each scope and protocols that you are discovering to ensure that the discovery will finish in the allotted timeframe?

    I don't know about the OP, but I unfortunately cannot limit it further. The client provided me with 688 scopes to scan with four discovery agent robots. Some of those scopes are class B. I can't find any documentation to indicate if there is an upper limit of IP addresses to use per agent.
