The Directory displays information about Deep Discovery appliances and repository servers that are registered to Deep Discovery Director.

  • Left pane: Appliance tree with groups (represented by folders) and appliances (identified by display names, initially identical to their host names)


    An exclamation mark icon attached to the appliance or repository server icon indicates that the connection with this appliance or repository server has been lost.

  • Right pane: Information about plans, appliances, installed or hosted update files, etc.

On fresh installations, the Directory is empty and only displays the following default groups:

  • Managed: Appliances placed in this group can receive plan information from the Deep Discovery Director server and updates and Virtual Analyzer images from designated repository servers. Appliances can also replicate their configuration to and from other compatible appliances.

  • Unmanaged: Appliances placed in this group cannot receive plan information, updates, Virtual Analyzer images, or replicate their configuration.

Appliances can register to Deep Discovery Director on their respective management consoles. Newly registered appliances first appear in the Unmanaged group but can be moved to the Managed group at any time.
