Creating a discovery range group

Description: The Add-DiscoveryRangeGroup command allows you to create a discovery range group. A discovery range group can either contain a range of IPs, individual IPs, or host names under it. This enables you to modify protocols settings for the group and all the ranges it contains. You can maintain different sets of protocols for different types of devices in your network. With ranges not in a group, you have to edit each range individually to change the protocols which are active, the time out or retry values, or credentials used with each protocol. Each discovery range group can only have one corresponding subnet. The subnet for a group is read from the DiscoveryProfile.xml file and not from the Rangelist.xml or RangeList.csv file. If required, create multiple groups for each subnet. For more information about DiscoveryProfile.xml, Rangelist.xml, and RangeList.csv files, see Creating a Discovery Profile Input File and Specifying IPs, Ranges, or Host names Using XML or CSV Files .

Command:
  • PS> Add-DiscoveryRangeGroup –Profile <DiscoveryProfile.xml> -GroupName <group name> -RangeList <Rangelist.xml>
  • PS> Add-DiscoveryRangeGroup –Profile <DiscoveryProfile.xml> -GroupName <group name> -RangeListCSV <Rangelist.csv>
Examples:
  • PS> Add-DiscoveryRangeGroup –Profile .\Samples\DiscoveryProfile.xml -GroupName Group1 -RangeList .\Samples\rangelist.xml
  • PS> Add-DiscoveryRangeGroup –Profile .\Samples\DiscoveryProfile.xml -GroupName Group1 -RangeListCSV .\Samples\rangelist.csv
