Add a Scanner to a Network (Classic Interface)

Required User Role: Scan Manager or Administrator

A scanner or scanner group is part of the default network unless you add it to a custom network. A scanner or scanner group can only be part of one network at a time.

You can only add a scanner group to a custom network if all scanners in that group belong to either the default network or the same custom network. If you try to add a scanner group that contains a scanner already assigned to a different custom network, prevents you from adding the scanner group to the network until you resolve the conflict.

To add a scanner or scanner group to a network:

  1. In the top navigation bar, click Scans.

    The My Scans page appears.

  2. In the left navigation bar, click Scanners.

    The Scanners page appears.

  3. Click the Networks tab.

    The Networks page appears. This page contains a table listing the default network and all custom networks in your instance.

  4. In the networks table, click the network where you want to add scanners.

    The Edit Network page appears.

  5. In the Available Scanners table, click the button next to the scanner or scanner group you want to add. determines whether there are any scanner group conflicts:

    • If no conflicts are present, adds the scanner or scanner group to the network and moves it to the Member Scanners table.
    • If any conflicts are present, displays a message that lists which scanners you must remove from the scanner group to resolve the conflict. For more information about removing scanners from scanner groups, see Edit a Scanner Group.
