Exclude IP addresses

Administrators can exclude specific IP addresses in a range or network from a Discovery Schedule.

About this task

For example, you might exclude a subnet containing devices restricted from interacting with other devices or exclude a device with an intentionally unorthodox configuration that causes an authentication issue each time it is discovered.

To exclude an IP address:

Procedure

  1. In the Discovery Schedule form, click the link for the Type of IP address range that contains the address to exclude.

    For example, to exclude 10.10.10.28, select the IP Network for 10.10.10.0/24, which is the range of IP addresses that contains the target address.
