Registry Discovery: Include scopes

You can specifically add domains, OUs, containers, computers, hives and keys. For full information on using the browser to add scopes, see Using the Browser to Include and Exclude Scopes .

You can create scopes using a dynamic query, which is resolved when the discovery is run. This gives you the flexibility to describe the computers you want to target. For more information, see Using Queries to Define Your Scopes .

Click Add.
Click Include to add to your selected scopes list.
Click OK

Registry Discovery: Optionally refine your scope list with exclusions

Exclusions refine the inclusions you have defined. You can do this optional step in conjunction with inclusions. For more information, see Refining Your Scope with Exclusions .

Click Add.
Click Exclude

Registry Discovery: Select your global scopes

Global scopes are hives or keys that are collected from every computer in the scope. When you run the discovery, Enterprise Reporter uses the scopes you selected in the first two steps to resolve a list of computers that will be targeted. Anything you include or exclude globally is applied to these computers. Use global scopes to:

Click Include or Exclude.

Registry Discovery: Decide what to collect from any computer

The following table outlines the additional information that can be collected. Collecting additional information impacts discovery performance. Options with a high performance cost will slow discovery performance more than options with a medium or low performance cost.


Collect values

This option is selected to collect key values. You can disable this option to collect only registry keys and enhance discovery performance.


Key permissions



If collecting key permissions, you can enable this option to recursively collect the members of any groups found in your discovery.


The following options further refine how collection tasks are handled.When collecting additional attributes, especially ones with a high performance cost, consider enabling this performance option to help improve collection performance.


Recursion options



Large registry hives can take a while to collect, so you can improve performance by restricting the number of branches using the Branch depth option.

The following options determine how target computers are resolved during discoveries.


Resolution Options


Pings target computers at collection time to determine the existence of target computers on the network before processing tasks.

Verifies the existence of target computers with disjoint namespaces by using their DNS host names and, if that fails, by using their NetBIOS names.
