Managing device inventory

When a device boots in to the KACE Boot Environment (KBE), the appliance identifies the device by its MAC address, lists the device on the Device Inventory page, and uploads its hardware inventory information to the appliance. The MAC address and other information about the device appear on the list. The appliance lists devices that are on the network, but have not booted in to the appliance on the Network Inventory page.

About adding devices to KACE SDA Inventory:

Configure and run a network scan

Configure and run a network scan

You can configure a Network Scan, or select and run an existing scan to detect devices that are on the network. Running the scan discovers the configured IP range and creates a Network Inventory item on the appliance for each address in the range. The MAC address and port status can only be detected for devices on the same subnet as the appliance.

1.
On the left navigation pane, click Devices to expand the section, then click Network Scans to display the Network Scans page.
Select Choose Action > New to display the Network Scan Detail page to configure the IP range for the scan. The process scans the configured IP range and creates a Network Inventory item for each address in the range.
3.
Click Save.

Add network inventory to the appliance

Add network inventory to the appliance

You can list devices in a comma-separated (CSV) formatted file and upload the CSV file to the appliance to add devices to the appliance. The appliance identifies the devices listed in the file in the order of IP address, MAC address, and host name.

Each line in the CSV file must specify the IP Address, MAC Address (with colons), and Host Name (optional) in a comma-separated format. For example: 192.168.2.44,00:22:5f:51:eb:df,KACE_SDA.

1.
On the left navigation pane, click Devices, then click Network Inventory to display the Network Scan Inventory page.
2.
Select Choose Action > Upload to display the Upload Network Inventory page.
3.
Click Browse and select the CSV file.
4.
Click Upload Inventory to view the list of devices on the Network Scan Inventory page.
Select Choose Action > Send Wake-on-LAN to power on the devices, then create a boot action. See Create a boot action.
