Reclassify Multiple Nodes window

After the Direct Network Scan, some network nodes remain unrecognized, and Alloy Discovery classifies those nodes as Unknown. For such rare cases, this window allows you to manually set the type of the multiple nodes simultaneously. For the computers, you can also reclassify operating system types and hypervisor types. In addition, this window allows you to change the version of the SNMP protocol for multiple nodes.

To reclassify the type of the multiple nodes:

  • In the Network Node Type field, select the desired type from a drop-down list, and then choose one of the following options:

    • For Network Device, specify the Network Device Type, such as printer, router, switch, UPS, etc.

    • For Computer or Chromebook, click OK.

To reclassify OS type for multiple computers:

  • In the OS Type field, select the desired type from a drop-down list, such as Windows, Linux, or Mac OS, and then click OK.

To reclassify Hypervisor type for multiple computers:

  • In the Hypervisor field, select the desired type, such as MS Hyper-V Server, VMware ESX, Vmware ESXi, Xen Hypervisor, Citrix XenServer, and then click OK.

To reclassify SNMP version for multiple nodes:

  • In the SNMP version field, select the desired version of the SNMP protocol, such as v1, v2c, v3, or Autodetect, and then click OK.
