Discover and add network devices

After you install SAM, identify the devices you want to monitor and add them to the SolarWinds Orion database. There are several ways to do this, including

  • Use the Discovery Wizard (also called the Network Sonar Wizard) to detect a large number of devices across your enterprise, and then add discovered devices with the Network Sonar Results Wizard.
  • Add nodes by querying your Active Directory domain controller
  • Add individual nodes on the Manage Nodes page.
