About Router Hops in Network Discovery

Applies To: System Center Configuration Manager 2007, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP1, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2

In Configuration Manager 2007, the degree to which a large network is mapped at one time by Network Discovery is determined by the number of router hops that a Network Discovery run is set for. Each router hop made during the network discovery can significantly increase the amount discovered if a network is broken into multiple nodes.

To get a better idea of how router hops can affect the amount of network resources discovered, consider the following network:

Example of Router Hops in Network Discovery

A Network Discovery, running from Server 1, finds the following routers (and their attached subnets), depending on how many router hops are specified:

  • Zero router hops: Router B

  • One router hop: Routers A, B, C, and E

  • Two router hops: All routers

More detailed examples can be seen for router hops ranging from zero to four hops by clicking the following links:
