Understand updates to asset inventory discovery in SCM
Prior to the release of Server Configuration Monitor (SCM) 2019.4, when a new installation of SCM brought asset inventory into the Orion server, asset inventory was automatically enabled for all eligible nodes, with the exception of agent nodes. But starting with SCM 2019.4, when any newly installed module brings asset inventory into the Orion server, asset inventory is automatically enabled for all eligible nodes, including agent nodes.
When you click Add Agent on the Manage Agents page to create a new node, asset inventory for the node is discovered in the background and enabled when applicable. However, you can opt out of the feature in Advanced Configuration via settings, EnableAgentAutomaticDiscovery.
