After you enable the Discovery Agent, the agent inventory automatically updates every 24 hours. The agent runs as a Windows service and triggers a refresh based on that schedule.
To optimize for outbound bandwidth utilization, the agents randomize the next inventory refresh within a 24-hour timeframe. This process prevents all agents from reporting at the same time.
Optionally, you can force the agent on a targeted machine to manually push an update. To push the update, open a Command Prompt window and run the following commands or copy the code into the prompt. If the prompt does not return an error message, the procedure completed successfully.
