Computer Discovery in Small Office Administration?
« on: April 07, 2016, 03:54:26 PM »
When I initially set up Small Office Administration yesterday, it was able to traverse my entire network neighborhood and display all the various workgroups in my network.  I don't need some of them now, so I'd like to remove them (and the machines) from future scans.  However, when I go to edit the job "Computer Discovery" and deselect the unwanted workgroups, they are not listed.  The program still scans those workgroups though.  Any ideas?

Hello,

To remove those clients from being scanned then you would need to remove them from the Active Directory or with SOA, leave them as unmanaged and do not deploy the client to those specific machines.

You can remove them from the list by right clicking but each time you run another computer discovery those machines will re-appear so the best solution is to remove them from the AD.

I hope this helps but if you have any further questions please contact us at edu@avast.com

Kind Regards
