Adding an asset on a remote network
By Owen Allen on Feb 14, 2014
I saw an interesting question about discovering assets:
"I'm trying to discover a new chassis. I have three Proxy Controllers and all of them can ping the chassis, but only one has the firewall access to communicate with it. None of the Proxy Controllers has a direct connection to the network with the chassis, so that network isn't in the network list. How do I get the discovery job to route correctly?"
There is a solution in the discovery profile here. The discovery profile has a field for the target host or IP address, and a dropdown for the network. When you put the profile together, you supply the asset's IP address, and then select a network that has a route to the network with the chassis on it. Run that and you'll be able to discover the asset.
