Cancel in-progress autodiscovery?



Is there some way to cancel an in-progress autodiscovery? I accidentally selected autodiscovery at a group level when I meant to do it at the device level - now it's rediscovering the whole subnet again. I just want it to abort but I can't seem to find a way to stop it once it's started!

Thanks, Tim

you could try to 'Pause' the group and then after a short while (1-2 minutes) to 'Resume' it. This should cancel the Auto-Discovery thread.

Best Regards.
