    Hi Team,

    I installed ITCA 14.0 on Windows 2012 server with 2012 SQL Server (for CCS, Continuous Discovery Compatibility).
    I installed CCS with all Components.

    Now I want to configure Continuous Discovery, but I can't create Continuous Discovery Policy as this option is missing (or I don't know where to find it).
    Under DSM Explorer -> Control Panel -> Deployment -> I don't have Continuous Discovery Policy option.
    Is something missing in the configuration or I don't look at the right place to configure?
    How can I configure Continuous Discovery Policy?

    Regards,
    Pavel.​

    HI Pavel,

     

    CCS discovery is configured from the Worldview Discovery settings.

     

    From ITCM you can only configure Auto Deployment which I have not seen used for quite a few years!

     

    The  first Green Book we ever did has a chapter on how to configure.

     

    Rgds,

    Steve.

    Hi Steve,

    Do you have a copy for the first green book? Can't find it online.

    Regards,
    Pavel.

    Hi Steve,

    Thank you very much for the docs.
    I have configured the Discovery, now I can see in 2D-Map my subnet and Discovered PC IP.
    Is agent installed automatically as part of Auto-Discovery process or Agent installation should be initiated differently after discovery?
    Sorry for so many questions, never done this configuration befor.

    Regards,
    Pavel.

    Hi Pavel,

     

    Looking at the documentation not everything was imported (missing the deployment section) from the Green Book so I have attached the original.

     

    The Auto Deployment proved very unreliable and I have not seen it used in many years. You can use the deployment wizard and query for unmanaged assets.

     

    Rgds,

    Steve.
