    How can I keep VM properties up to date without auto discovering VMs or VM hosts?

    David Muench

      I'd like to be able to run my virtual infrastructure discovery job to keep the servers' VM related properties up to date (like IS_VIRTUAL), but I don't want the job to auto-discover VMs and ESX hosts that it doesn't already know about - it is eating up our licenses for things we don't care about, and it seems BSA can't talk to ESXi anyway.


      In the job properties in order to unclick the "Auto register discovered ESX hosts / Virtual Systems" box I have to also unclick "Run Virtual Infrastructure Update". If I do that I am left with only "Run Virtual Infrastructure Discovery" checked, which does not sound like it will update the existing server properties. Is this the way to do what I want, am I reading too much into the names of the options?
