Hi,

page 64 of SE essentials...

Modifying the Properties of a Discovered Address
You can modify the following properties for discovering an device:
â ¢ User name and password - You can change the user name and password the management
server uses to access a device. Whenever a user name and/or password has changed on a
device the management server monitors, the management server must be made aware of the

change. For example, assume the password for a host was changed. You would need to
updated the management server database with the new password.
â ¢ Discovery group - All elements are initially placed in the Default discovery group. You can
then move elements from the Default discovery group to other discovery groups.You can use
discovery groups to break up Discovery Data Collection. For example, you could specify that
the management server gets Discovery Data Collection for only the elements in Discovery
Group 1, thus, saving you time. This feature is sometimes referred to as segmented replication
because you can specify getting Discovery Data Collection for a segment of the discovered
elements.
Keep in mind the following:
â ¢ You can use this window to change the user name and password stored in the management
server's database. It does not change the device's user name and password.
â ¢ Discovery groups cannot be renamed or created. You must use the existing discovery groups.
â ¢ You can also use the Move to Discovery Group button to move multiple elements to another
discovery group. See â Moving Elements to Another Discovery Groupâ on page45 for more
information.
To change the discovery properties of an element:
1.Click Options > Storage Essentials > Discovery > Run Discovery Data Collection.
2.Click the button corresponding with the element you want to modify.
3.To change the user name, type the new user name in the User Name field.
4.To move an element to another discovery group, select its new discovery group from the
Discovery Group drop-down menu.
5.To change the password:
a.Click Change Password.
b.Type the new password in the New Password field.
c.Type the password again in the Verify Password field.
d.Click OK in the Change Password window.
6.Click OK in the Edit Discovered Element windo
