Refreshing Inventory

NAKIVO Backup & Replication keeps the information about the discovered infrastructure in its internal database, which is refreshed every 1 hour by default. During the inventory refresh, the product collects all required information about your virtual infrastructure, such as a list of hosts and VMs, their power state, and so on.

Only one item can be refreshed at a time. If you have added multiple items to the inventory, they will remain in the queue until they are able to be refreshed.Refer to the sections below to learn how to refresh the discovered infrastructure.
