Lansweeper allows you to group various assets, making it quick and easy to look at specific network segments. You can group based on IP range (IP location group), other criteria like asset name or model (dynamic group) or manually (static group). To view the members of any group, hover over the Assets section in the web console and click the group name.
An asset can belong to an unlimited number of asset groups. Asset groups are configured in the Configuration > Asset Groups section of the web console.
IP range locations allow you to assign a name to an IP range. Any asset that belongs to the specified range will be placed in the corresponding IP location you've created.
Select Add IP range location in the IP Address Range locations menu, enter an IP location name, a start IP and an end IP address, and select Ok. The share, username and password fields are only relevant for software deployment.
Static groups allow you to select any number of random machines or devices and add them to a group.
Select Add Static Group in the Static Asset Groups menu, enter a group name into the pop-up window and select Ok. You can then add assets to the group by clicking Add Assets and ticking the checkboxes in front of the assets.
Dynamic groups allow you to group machines or devices based on criteria.
Select Add Dynamic Group in the Dynamic Asset Groups menu, enter a group name into the pop-up window and select Ok. You can then specify criteria the assets in the group have to meet by selecting Add Filter. In the resulting pop-up, you can select a database field, an operator (to look for exact or partial matches), and a value.
