The ICMP protocol allows the discovery engine to test whether a particular IP address is active and responding on the network. Depending on network latency, this protocol can be adjusted to meet the configuration on your network.
Note: You can only edit the default ICMP settings; you cannot create a new set of ICMP credentials.
To change the ICMP settings for the discovery engine:
Note: If you are discovering across a WAN link, increase the timeout.
Note: If you are discovering across a WAN link, increase the number of retries.
