    Discovering a Network Element

    Use this procedure to discover a network element.

    Note: You need administrator privileges to perform this task.

    1. Click the Elements icon in the left sidebar.

      The network elements table is displayed:

    2. Click the Discovery button.

      The Discovery dialog appears:

    3. Specify the IP address of the network element(s) in the Address Pattern box.
    4. To specify an SNMP community string and other parameters, click Advanced Parameters.

      For more information on network discovery address formats and parameters, see the proNX Service Manager User Guide.

    5. Click Discover.

      This launches the discovery task.

    6. To see the status of the discovery task, select Admin and then Tasks from the sidebar. Alternatively, click on the task completion notification when it appears in the lower left corner of the window.

    7. If a task has subtasks, expand the task to see whether or not the discovery is successful.

      Note: The parent (container) task might show success while the subtask shows failure. In this case, the discovery has failed for the specified network element.

    8. To sort, filter, copy, print, or save task table entries, see Working with tables.
