Once each day, Data Protection Manager (DPM) queries Active Directory Domain Services to discover new servers. This process is referred to as auto discovery.

Auto discovery is limited to a DPM server's domain.

DPM lists the new server the next time you open the Protection Agent Installation Wizard. To start protecting data on a new server, install a protection agent on the server and then add the data sources to a new or existing protection group.

By default, auto discovery runs at 1:00 A.M. each day. You can modify the auto discovery schedule to better accommodate your network traffic flow or other requirements. For more information, see How to Modify the Auto Discovery Schedule.
