Using the Device Discovery wizard

The Device Discovery wizard scans your network for devices, using the protocol(s) and settings you choose. After devices and monitors are found, you select the ones you want to monitor and WhatsUp Gold creates devices in the database for each item you choose.

The wizard begins by default after installation. After this initial Discovery, you can run another Discovery at any time from the console by clicking File > Discover Devices.

Note: The Device Discovery Wizard is only available in the WhatsUp Gold console.

Device groups are created based on subnetworks found during the scan. You may notice that some group folders may be empty. This is because a subnet was found, but the devices in that subnet were not scannable or you chose not to monitor them.
