Updated April 28th, 2016


The import process of the Network Discovery finds the nodes, but fails to import the new volumes found during the discovery process.

Import Status: not processed.


New volumes found are not imported as the Parent Nodes already exist in Orion.


Setting up a Discovery Profile with only the Windows credentials should discover the volumes for existing WMI or new WMI nodes.

  2. Click Add New Discovery.
  3. Delete the SNMP credentials in step 1, and click Next.
  4. For the WMI credentials in step 3, click Add New Credentials.
  5. Click Add after entering the details of the new windows credentials.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Provide the IP range of the Network, and then click Next.
  8. Change the Discovery Settings to the desired value, and then click Next.
  9. Choose the option No, don't run now for the Discover Scheduling.
  10. Click Save.
  11. Click Discover Now to verify if the volumes are added.
