In order to discover Power Strips on the network, first you need to add at least one power strip type manually. See the article "How to manually add Power Strips to NodeGrid" for details.
Then, follow the steps below.
Access the NodeGrid via a browser and log in as admin user.
Go to Managed Devices :: Auto Discovery:: Network Scan page and click on Add button.
Enter a Scan ID and the IP range (start and end).
You can select/unselect the 3 options depending on how you want to discover your PDU devices:
You may want to change the scan interval or leave it the default 60 minutes.
Note: Similar Devices mean that all devices have the same credentials.
Now, go to Managed Devices :: Auto Discovery:: Discovery Rules, click Add, and follow the steps below to discover and add PDU devices to the NodeGrid Managed Devices.
NodeGrid Manager is now configured with basic information and ready to discover Power Strips, and to accept users and connections to managed devices. You may want to wait for the Scan Interval, or click on Discover Now tab, select the PDU Scan ID, and then click on Discover Now button.
