  1. Enter a Scan name.
  2. Select the number of hops you want the discovery to transverse.

    Hops are only used for subnet and seed device discoveries. Other discovery options will ignore the hops setting. We recommend using zero hops. Using one or more hops may significantly extend the time required to complete discovery.

  3. If you want to ignore nodes that do not respond to WMI or SNMP, select Ignore node that only respond to ICMP (ping).
  4. If you want to eliminate bridge tables from topology calculations, select Don’t use Bridge Table information to calculate network topology.
  5. Click Next.
