    Force Rescan...

    lou_reed

      I notice nearly every service or host when you add it has the option "Force Rescan" and by the default this is set to "OFF"

       

      Can I ask what does this option do, and what's the impact of it being enabled?

       

      Regards

      Lou

          Hi lou_reed,

           

          This will force a rescan of all the MA Services available on the host. For example, SQL, VMware, Windows management tools, SolarWinds Orion, etc. This takes a little bit of time to do, so it is not done except when the host is first added. However, it is useful when troubleshooting service discovery or if you've recently installed one of those services after Mobile Admin had already added it to its host list.
