When you manually add a device, you are prompted to enter the IP address or host name. WhatsUp Gold attempts to resolve the IP address or hostname, then scans the device for Active Monitors. When the scan is complete, you can further configure the device as needed. To demonstrate, we'll add a workstation to a device group.
To manually add a device to a device group:
Optionally, click Advanced, to set any of the Active Monitor scan, Performance Monitor scan, and other options. For more information, see the Help.
Optionally, select Add device immediately without scanning to add a device without scanning for the device.
Note: Any monitors for which the Use comprehensive discovery option is selected will be checked when the device is added.
For more information about the Device Properties dialog, see Learning about the Device Properties.
