Detailed Description

The Get-CMDiscoveryMethod cmdlet gets a discovery method for Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager. Discovery identifies computer and user resources that System Center 2012 Configuration Manager can manage. If it discovers a resource, Configuration Manager creates a record in the System Center 2012 Configuration Manager database for the resource and its associated information. You can then use the discovery information to help you to install the System Center 2012 Configuration Manager client and create custom queries and collections to logically group resources for related management tasks.

For more information about discovery in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, see About Configuration Manager Discovery (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=107444) on TechNet.
