Changing discovery interval overrides

When you install a new system or make changes to an existing system, the ESI Service takes a set amount of time to send these changes to the ESI management packs on the SCOM agents.

To trigger the discovery of new changes, you can toggle the Enabled override setting for the EMC SI Service Discovery:

  1. Open the Override Properties window for the EMC SI Service Discovery.

  2. Clear the Enabled override checkbox and click Apply.

  3. Then, before closing the window, select the Enabled override checkbox to reset the override. This triggers the discovery of all changes to components regardless of the interval values.

The default intervals for the discovery of new components vary depending on the component. If you want SCOM to discover newly added components more quickly than the set interval, you can temporarily change the interval setting. Then you can see the changes more quickly in SCOM. And after the changes are discovered, you can change it back to the preferred setting for your storage environment.

To change the discovery interval:

  1. Open the SCOM Operations Console and connect to the SCOM Management Group.

  2. Select Go > Authoring.

  3. In the left pane, select Object Discoveries.

  4. Locate and double-click the EMC Discovery for the desired object class.

  5. Open the Override properties and select to edit the overrides for all objects of class.

  6. Change the Interval (sec) property to the preferred value. The default values vary depending on the specific object  or component.


  1. Select the EMC Storage Integrator Customizations management pack.

  2. Click Apply and verify the changed values.

  3. Click OK, and then click Close.
