Network Configuration Properties

To view and edit network configuration properties, from the Navigation menu, select Infrastructure > Networks. The Networks page appears, listing networks by IP address.

You can view and change network configuration property values and inheritance selections. From the Display menu, select Configuration Properties.

The following table lists network configuration properties.

Network Configuration Properties
Property Name Property Type Description
zAutoDiscover boolean Specifies whether zendisc should perform auto-discovery on this network. (When performing network discovery, this property specifies whether the system should discover devices and subnetworks on the network.)
zDefaultNetworkTree lines A network subnet is automatically created for each modeled device, based on that device's subnet mask setting. To create higher-level subnets automatically from the discovery and modeling processes, add the specific subnet mask breakpoints. For example: 8, 16. If you then model a device with, for example, an IP address of, and a subnet mask of (corresponding to a /24 subnet), device discovery will create a network containing, containing, containing your device.
zDrawMapLinks boolean Calculating network links "on the fly" is resource-intensive. If you have a large number of devices that have been assigned locations, then drawing those map links may take a long time. You can use this property to prevent the system from drawing links for specific networks (for example, a local network comprising many devices that you know does not span multiple locations).
zIcon string Use to specify device icons that appear on the device status page, Dashboard, and network map.
zPingFailThresh int Specifies the number of pings sent without being returned before zendisc removes the device.
zPreferSnmpNaming boolean Specifies that when network discovery occurs, it uses the device name comes from SNMP rather than reverse DNS.
zSnmpStrictDiscovery boolean Specifies that if SNMP does not exist on the device during network discovery, ignore the device.
