    Finding End Points

    This topic describes how to find end points on the network. End points are computing devices that are connected to the network. You can search for end points based on several attributes. When you find an end point, you can see its last known location in the network.

    This topic describes:

    Procedure for Finding End Points

    1. Click Monitor in the Network Director banner.

      You can search for end points in any tab in Monitor mode.

    2. In the Tasks pane, select Tasks > Find Endpoint.

      The Find End Point window opens. For information about this window, click the Help button in the title bar of the window or see Find End Point Window.

    Find End Point Window

    The Find End Point window enables you to search for end points and see their last known location in the network. The search scope is the entire managed network, regardless of which node is selected in the View pane.

    To find end points:

    1. Enter search text in the text box. The search looks for the search text in these end point attributes:
      • MAC address
      • IP address
    2. Click Search.

      The found end points appear in the Search Results table. See Table 1 for a description of this table.

    Table 1: Table of Found End Points

    Actions

    Click Verify Current Location to verify the information shown for the end point. If any information changed since the last poll, it is updated in the table.

    Refreshing End Point Information

    Information about all end points connected to the managed network is polled automatically once every 24 hours. You can refresh this information manually.

    Note: Refreshing end point information can consume significant system resources and take several minutes to complete, depending on the size of the network and the number of connected end points.

    To refresh information about all end points connected to the managed network:

    1. Click Monitor in the Network Director banner.
    2. In the Tasks pane, select Tasks > Refresh Endpoint.

      A confirmation window opens, listing the job ID of the refresh job.

    The endpoint refresh runs as a job. You can monitor the job status in System mode by selecting Tasks > Manage Jobs in the Task pane.
