Deployment Architecture

deployment server - add IP range to ServerClass to have servers added to deployment server automatically

Path Finder

I have a lab that has an IP range that they use for their servers. Is there anyway to have the servers automatically available in the deployment server? I have searched for similar questions but not using IP ranges. We also have labs with naming conventions?
ex

serverclass = lab_servers 
whitelist = 128.88.8.*

or

serverclass = lab_srv2
whitelist = studentLab*

Would that actually add the servers with this range of IPs?
Or would this add the servers with studentlab1, studentlab2, etc?

Any help is appreciated.

Yes, both of these will work:

serverclass = lab_servers 
whitelist = 128.88.8.*

AND

serverclass = lab_srv2
whitelist = studentLab*

That is the beauty of the Deployment Server and ServerClass whitelists. Set it once with wildcards and you never have to touch it again.

Is there a way to set it with an IP range. For ex, 128.88.8.10 to 128.88.8.40?

Not really. It does not support CIDRs but it does support typical wildcarding so you could do 128.88.8.*

It will work for both if DNS is linked with IP then you can search with any one.

if you want to try, then create a server class and try to Preview the results.

Thx you for the quick response.

I have tried both (added IP xxx.xxx.x.* and srv name labsrv*) and the deployment server has not found any of the servers. The servers are in DNS

serverclass.conf:

[serverClass:IPAC_Windows_UF]
whitelist.0 = scom12*
whitelist.1 = 129.83.8.*

in the deployment server console I click Preview but nothing appears.
The above are listed under Edit Clients > Include (whitelist) but the deployment server can't find the servers.

Any suggestions?
