Discovery Task
« on: February 19, 2013, 09:13:15 PM »
This is a new install of AEA.  I am trying to get the Discovery Task to find my network computers, both with and without AVAST software clients.

So far, the only computer that is "discovered" is the one that Sqlserver resides on.  Sqlserver 2008 R2 seems to be running OK and I am not receiving any error messages.

Any troubleshooting suggestions are appreciated.

Please make sure that clients have the Network Discovery Enabled on the clients. If all the clients are on the Active Directory you should not have a problem finding them on the ACtive Directory but if your using a Workgroup then it will take a considerable amount of time to find all the computers on the Network and I recommend creating the installation package but during deployment task just choose to create the .exe then you will manually have to install the client .exe on each computer and THEN the clients will be seen in the Computer Catalog and connected to the Server.
