Configuring cloud asset discovery interval

By default, asset discovery happens every 4 hours. You can use the CLOUD_DISCOVERY_INTERVALto configure how often NetBackup performs cloud asset discovery. This interval represents hours and can be between 1 to 23. The value must be specified in integers.

To configure the cloud asset discovery interval

  1. Select appropriate configuration option.
    • Windows

      You can configure the discovery interval using the nbsetconfig command.

      For example

      nbsetconfig nbsetconfig>


      The directory path to this command is install_path\NetBackup\bin\

      See the NetBackup Commands Reference Guide.

    • UNIX

      Set the CLOUD_DISCOVERY_INTERVAL parameter in the /usr/openv/netbackup/bp.conf file.

  2. Restart the nbdisco service.

    Asset discovery is triggered after you restart the service.
