Manually run Netcrawler
I asked on the Email group
Is there a way to make NetCrawler Discovery run a second time in one day?
I set it up in my lab. I’m trying to get it to discover a workgroup machine, which it did successfully, but I didn’t have SMS/LMHOST/Hosts setup yet. I want to see if I can get SMS to automatically deploy the client when netcrawler runs and I don’t want to have to wait a day between tests.
Here is the Responce :-)
I asked Mr. Sugdinis (The NetCrawler man) this question for you, he states;
Yes, just have them setup a scheduled task or sms advert to run a script that does a net stop of the sms netcrawler discovery service and then then a net start of the service. That will allow them to run a disc cycle as many times a day as they want.
