can you please check on the 'Settings'-tab of this group especially the settings regarding to the Auto-Discovery? According to the error-message the IP-Base is not entered. Please check this. The IP-Base might be empty which causes the error-message. Please enter a valid IP-Base and save it (you could either try to set it to manual, or enter a valid IP base such as "10.0.0" or "192.168.1".).

Best Regards.
