Can I define location based on IP?



I have approx 150 remote sites (and several hundred larger ones) with a router, switch, and generally less than 5 devices.

Can I somehow relate the location to the IP address - ie, device x is in subnet 10.140.20.x therefore it is in site x.

Thanks Craig

well you could try to do this with different groups, so several Auto-Discoveries and then enter the different locations for each group and have this inherited.

best regards.
