Adding Devices to Realms

Perform the following to add devices to different realms:
  1. Now we are ready to add devices to the system. As mentioned previously, adding the same device to the system twice can simulate a multi-realm setup. Add a device called A.test making sure that when it is added the collector is set to one of the remote collectors, and not localhost.
  2. Rename the device.
  3. Add the device a second time using a different remote collector, again not localhost.
  4. After the device is loaded, select Software and follow the network link on one of the interfaces. Notice that the network has been created underneath the realm created earlier. This configuration is at the heart of multi-realm, as networks are discovered they are created within each realm. Monitoring is now happening on each representation of the device from the different collectors in different overlapping realms.

As another test try searching by IP from the top-level search. Two devices will be returned -- one within each realm.
