Hi

I'm currently configuring a new install of ePo 4.5, and am looking at tagging.

We have 2 sites, live and Disaster Recovery, and within these, we have both servers and workstations. These have different IP ranges. Can I set this so that when a new machine is discovered, it'll sort it into the right site, and then into the right category within the site.

Yes create a new group for each site

1. Log in with the login details you created above.
2. Click the Systems icon > Select My Organisation > Group Tab > New Subgroup > Call it something like DOMAINNAME-LIVE
3. Ensure the new group is selected on the left > Next to sorting Criteria Click Edit.
4. Select the second option > "systems that match any of the criteria below..." > Enter the IP range (each subnet on a different line) e.g.

192.168.1.1-192.168.1.254
5. Click Save.

repeat for the next group

Thanks Pete

And if I then sort these into servers and workstations, it will use both criteria, eg, i have domainname - Live then a subgroup servers and WSs and the same for domainname Test. so if the IP is in the Live range, and it's a WS, it'll put it into the correct group?

hi,

While creating the TAGs u have an options either to Run the Tag criteria or on each agent to server communication.

When the 2 nd option is slected, the systems egt moved to the respective groups on each communication.

Thanks

What i've done is to have a production site, which has IP address criteria. Below this i have "Domain Controllers", "Servers" and "Workstations". Each of these is set to synchronise with AD containers. What i'm noticing is that the Domain Controllers subgroup is pulling in the DC from the disaster recovery site too. This doesn't meet the IP constraints from it's parent group (production). I would have thought that the AD sync would only pull in systems that match the criteria of the parent group, and the subgroup...

What you  would want to do is differentiate your subnets for DCs, server and workstations and than only sort based upon IP.
