How to exclude domain users and groups in WMI-scan

You are here:-, Knowledge base, vScope Settings-How to exclude domain users and groups in WMI-scan

In some cases there are many Domain Users in an environment. This might add unnecessary load onto vScope and one might therefore want to exclude Domain Users from the WMI-scan. Here is how to do it:

Locate the file C:/vScopeData/configuration/config.ini. Open config.ini and add the following two rows:

discovery.probe.wmi.query_domain_users=false
discovery.probe.wmi.translate_domain_users=false

Save the file and restart vScopeServer Service.

  • After this change, vScope will:
    • NOT include domain groups
    • NOT include domain users
    • NOT include the relationships between users & groups
  • vScope will still:
    • Include local users on machines
    • Include local groups on machines
