Is it possible to add multiple devices at once without using auto-discovery?



I have a list of servers that I need to monitor, and I would like to know if it's possible to add all these devices at once manually. These servers are in different domains, that's why I wouldn't like to use auto-discovery.

Is there a way to add all of them like reading their name and IP (or DNS) from a file, for example?

Thank you very much!

I'm afraid there is no option such a "multi-add" for devices, if you don't want to use the Auto-Discovery. Everything else is more or less on a 1:1 basis (cloning). Unless you could use groups that you would clone. Might make things a bit easier.

Best Regards.
