Issue/Introduction

IMPORTANT: This article contains information about modifying the registry.
Before you modify the registry, make sure to create a back up of the registry and ensure that you understand how to restore the registry if a problem may occur.
For more information about how to back up, restore, and edit the registry, please review the relevant Microsoft Knowledge Base articles on support.microsoft.com.

In ITCM, which also includes CCS, the Continuous Discovery Agent subnet scan frequency can be changed by modifying the following registry key:

For 32 bit machine:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ComputerAssociates\Discovery\Agent\DscvrAgtEngine\DiscoveryMgmt\POLL_INTERVAL

For 64 bit machine:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ComputerAssociates\Discovery\Agent\DscvrAgtEngine\DiscoveryMgmt\POLL_INTERVAL

By default the POLL_INTERVAL is set to 60 minutes, which is the minimum valid value.
