Information display settings

Additional information displayed in the Network tree can be selected in the Tree display settings menu, located on the Network tree toolbar.

For instance, setting hostnames as node names and selecting IP addresses for the additional field will result in the Network tree looking like this:

If the node is a local computer, then a home icon will be displayed before the device type icon.

Both node names and the additional fields are used when searching in the Network tree.

Node names

Pick which values will serve as node names. Both the primary values (aliases, hostnames, IP addresses) and the secondary values (domains, workgroups, full domain names, descriptions, locations) can be displayed as the node name.

If Alias is set as the node name, network nodes can be renamed by choosing Rename from the individual context menu or by pressing F2. The asset’s alias will be changed. Another way to do this is via the Asset properties.

Additional field

An additional value can be displayed in the Network tree for every node. This value is selected from the same list as for the node name.

If IP addresses are displayed as node names, and a node has the Static IP address property, then the grey lock icon will appear after the IP address; but if IP addresses are displayed in the additional field, and a node has the Static IP address property, then the blue lock icon will appear before the IP address.

Sorting the nodes

The Sorting section allows to select the sorting criteria: nodes can be sorted either by their names or by the additional field values (configured as shown above), with an option to reverse the sorting order.
