Subnet node

A Subnet node represents an IP subnet on which IP addresses have been scanned.

Subnet Lifecycle

The following section describes the scenarios in which a Subnet node is created, updated or destroyed.

Creation

A new Subnet node is created in the datastore when a host, network device, printer, or SNMP managed device is scanned and its DiscoveredIPAddress is on a subnet that is not represented in the datastore. Subnet nodes are not created for the IPv6 link local prefix.

The generated key for a Subnet node is based on the IP range.

Update

A Subnet node's identity and entire data content are the same thing and are consequently not updated.

Removal

To remove a Subnet node manually, find the necessary Subnet node, select it in the list and pick Destroy from the Actions list.
