How to Set the Number of Router Hops for 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. For more information on how router hops affect Network Discovery, see About Router Hops in Network Discovery.

You must have Modify permission for the Site security object to configure this aspect of Network Discovery. For more information about security permissions, see Classes and Instances for Object Security in Configuration Manager.

To set the number of router hops for a Network Discovery run

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System CenterConfiguration Manager / Site Database / Site Management /<site name>/ Site Settings / Discovery Methods.

  2. Right-click Network Discovery, and then click Properties.

  3. From the Maximum Hops drop-down list on the SNMP tab, select the maximum number of router hops for the discovery run to make.

  4. Click OK.
