If vRealize Operations Manager does not discover objects after an adapter instance is configured, use manual discovery. Discovering objects is more efficient than adding objects individually.

Note

You use discovery to define objects for embedded adapters. vRealize Operations Manager discovers objects that use external adapters.

In the left pane, select Administration > Environment Overview. Click the Discover Objects toolbar option.
