Add new devices manually

This feature allows you to manually add Computers or Mobile devices that are not found or added automatically. The Computers or Group tab allows you to add new computers or mobile devices.

1.To add a new computer, click Computers > Add New and then select Computers (alternatively click the gear icon gear_icon next to existing Static group and then click Add New).

2.Add Computers - you can use several options:

oType the IP address or hostname of a machine you want to add and ESET Security Management Center will search for it on the network. Optionally, you can enter a Description of the computers.

o+ Add Device to add additional devices. If you want to delete a computer from the list of devices, click the Trashcan icon delete_default or click Remove All.

oImport CSV to upload a .csv file containing a list of computers to add. For more information, see Import CSV upload.

oCopy & Paste a custom list of computers separated with custom delimiters. The feature works similarly to importing a CSV.

3.Click Select tags to assign tags.

4.Parent group - select an existing Parent group and then click OK.

5.Use FQDN resolution:

oSelect the check box and the ESMC Server translates the provided IP address or computer hostname to a fully qualified domain name.

oUnselect the check box to import the provided computer names. This option makes the batch import of computers quicker with names in FQDN format (for example, import from a .csv).

6.Use the Conflict Resolution drop-down menu to select the action to take if a computer you are adding already exists in ESMC:

Ask when detected: When a conflict is detected, the program will ask you to select an action (see the options below).

Skip duplicate devices: Duplicate computers will not be added.

Create duplicate devices: New computers will be added, but with different names.

Move duplicate devices into group... : Conflicting computers will be moved into Parent Group.

7.Click Add when you are finished making changes.
