Configure the network address used on device discovery and appears in the All Devices page. You can set the display to be either the IP address of the device or a FQDN, such as the machine name. Set this in the discovery defaults.
- Click Administration > Defaults > Discovery Defaults.
- In the Network Address Type area, select the address format to use.
- If you want to change the format through existing discovered devices, click Propagate.
- Click Save.
You can change the format that appears in N-able N-central later if needed. For more information, see Globally change all device network addresses format.
