Explaination of the Site section in XEOX

Each Hardware or Person has to be assigned to a Site. This is the base location of them.


If you like to make a more detailed model of your company, you can create buildings, sub buildings (e.g. Floors) and rooms. Hardware can be assigned to Rooms.

Rooms can also contain Racks and Patch Panels. These entries can be used in the module PNAC. e.g. Assign Switches to Racks.

Create subnets in Sites

When creating new sites, the corresponding subnets can also be created. To do that go CMDB -> Site -> Create. Upon clicking on the checkbox, further setting options are shown.

Site management

XEOX allows you to create multiple Sites in your Organization. This makes it easier to divide your Organization in locations or departments.

In order to automatically assign a hardware to a site, following configuration must be done:

Go to CMDB -> Sites and select Default Site for new Agents.

In case a Default Site has been established in another location, its configuration will be transferred to the current site. Moreover, if the option of Default Site for new Agents is chosen, any new hardware that cannot be allocated through IP address will be automatically assigned to this site.

Select Site using IP

If you want to assign new hardware to a site using the IP address, you should first define the corresponding subnet.

For more Information visit IP Plan.

Important: This feature only works if the subnet is assigned to a site

As soon as new hardware is registered, XEOX checks if a suitable subnet is available in your organization.

Only IP addresses assigned through a wired or wireless interface are used. The wired connection is always preferred. Once a subnet is found, the hardware is assigned to the Site defined in your subnet.

XEOX uses the best matching subnet:

  • e.g. for IP
  • XEOX prefers configurations in versus

Click on Site and select --- Calculated from IP ---. Now click on Save to move your selected Hardware to previously calculate site.

Warning: Be careful when changing other attributes, as alterations made will apply to all selected devices uniformly.

Assign IP subnets in IP Plan sites

To assign subnets to a site, you must check create new subnet assigned to this site when creating or editing a site. Then you can enter the data of the different subnets.
