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. This enties can be used in the module PNAC. e.g. Assign Switches to Racks.
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.
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".
If a "Default Site" has already been defined in "other Site", the "Default Site" configuration will be transfered to current Site.
If "Default Site for new Agents" is selected, new hardware that cannot be assigned via the IP is automatically assigned to this Site.
If you want to assign new hardware to a Site using the IP address, you should first define the corresponding Subnet.
For more Information: IP Plan
Important: This feature only works if the Subnet is assigned to a Site
As soon as new hardware registers, XEOX checks whether a suitable Subnet is available in your organization.
Only IP addresses are used which have been assigned via a wired or wireless interface. The wired connection is always preferred. As soon as a subnet is found, the hardware is assigned to the Site defined in your Subnet.
XEOX uses the best matching subnet:
Go to CMDB -> Hardware and click on "Columns" and select "Current Site" to see the Calculated Site for your Hardware.
Now you should see a new column "Current Site" that shows the calculated Site based on your Hardware's IP.
Now you can see that some Devices are outside their calculated Site. To correct this, select your Hardware and click on Multi-Edit.
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. e.g. Altered attributes are the same for all selected devices.
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.
