How to manually link an IP to a device in Auvik

Follow

There will be times that in spite of best efforts Auvik will not link the proper IP address to a device. Auvik now offers users a way to manually link an IP address to a specific device.

This gives users more power to manually assign specific addresses to devices as required.  Answers to frequently asked questions about the feature can be found here.  

Note: You can only manually map IP addresses to existing polled devices one at a time.

  1. Open Discovery

    Note: Manually linking an IP to a device will prevent it from dynamically linking to another device unless the manual linking is removed or the device is deleted.
  7. Click Save
  8. A green success banner will appear if the linkage was successful and the new IP will show the selected IP as Manually assigned vs the System Assigned IPs that were dynamically assigned by Auvik
