Hello, It would be really handy to trigger some alerts when using Active Discovery: Here are some examples: 1/ The ability to set an alert when a given MAC address is connected to a mananged network 2/ The ability to get an alert each time a new device is connected to the managed network, or the first time it is connected These alerts would be SMS/Emails, and/or a visual warning within the dashboard. (just like a monitoring ...more »
Along with the scheduled scan time that is in Device Details\Settings\Local Agent, please set it up so that Windows Agent perform an asset scan on service start up so that if a machine is offline normally at the time of the scheduled scan time it will still get updated in our system. It can be pretty common for workstations/laptops to be brought online just for our onboarding when normally they might be online during ...more »
A long time ago, N-Able thought they had fixed the reason duplicate devices were being created and decided to remove the ability to merge devices.
They did not (especially when sites were introduced and re-installs occur using the wrong id), so we've still been seeing duplicate devices being created ever since.
Please bring back th eoption to merge!!!
Would like to have a discovery tool with generic reports to help promote sales. 1) I would love to see a tool that can be loaded on a laptop that can be used to do a complete audit of a network. 2) it needs to collect machine hardware information, warranty start and finish dates. 3) analyze anti-malware products installed and expiration dates 4)report to clearly define the n-able licenses need to support the discovered ...more »
When a discovery job does not have any devices that need to be imported it shows the last time it was run. However, if there is something to import, there is no way to find the last time it was run.
It would be nice to add "last runtime" as a column that always exists.
The ability to run a discovery job in a "Whatif" or test mode with additional details would be helpful.
This mode of discovery will find devices and report on what it would have mapped it as, if it would have been imported, what device type or OS it detected.
This would be helpful for troubleshooting and estimation purposes.
Is there a way to configure network discovery to generate an alert when a new device is detected on the network. I can manually review the list of connected devices and sort them by date, but I'd like some sort of push notification when a new device is discovered.
Submitting on behalf of:
Currently there is a push agent feature via active discovery and the network tabs (although I find it quite unreliable, please improve it). It would be good, perhaps after some further updates to add functionality that means the agents push out automatically to new machines on the network. As the process in its current state is quite manual and a GPO deployment (if available) is still more favorable. To control what ...more »
Our team came up with this great idea: In the Network management tab, integrate a context-sensitive submenu (or similar) which incorporates Links like: - Access in Browser - Start SSH console - Start Telnet console - ... (See attached image) The traffic would get tunneled through HTTPS to the customers network (e.g. through the preferred or any Active Discovery Agent) and being SNATed there. (Just like the MOB/IASO technique, ...more »
This might already been in the pipeline for the 'network discovery' feature in RM. But it would be ideal if it could put together a network diagram automatically based off the information that is available to it. I understand it might not be perfect or the diagrams generated are 100% accurate or represented in a way that the client wants but it would definitely allow for easier visualization of the network and assist ...more »
Fix how Network Discovery sorts IP Addresses. It is grouping IP addresses that begins with the same first digit.
Network Discovery is a good feature but ... Once you set a preferred discovery agent (and an alternate agent <==new feature suggestion), the service should stop on all other devices. Allow a mechanism to disable the agent on any machine which 'travels'. If you have a device that moves from network to network either physically (e.g. a laptop you carry around from site to site) or logically (e.g. using a SSL VPN to ...more »
