Setting options in the Preferences tab

The device resolution preferences tab lets you create an auto resolution schedule, specify storage and tape venders to include or exclude from identification, and set DNS lookup options.

Auto resolution schedule

An auto resolution schedule can specify when automatic device resolution is run:
Option Description
Every Use this option to run automatic device resolution on intervals of days, hours, or minutes.
Every day Use this option to run automatic device resolution daily at a specific time.
Manually Use this option to only run automatic device resolution manually.
On every environment change Use this option to run automatic device resolution whenever there is a change in the environment.

If you specify manually, nightly automatic device resolution is disabled.

DNS processing options

DNS processing options allow you to select the following features:

Including or excluding specific storage and tape vendors

You can include or exclude specific storage and tape vendors for automatic resolution. You might want to exclude specific vendors if you know, for example, that a specific host will become a legacy host and should be excluded from your new environment. You can also re-add vendors that you earlier excluded but no longer want excluded.
