Setting Device Location Information

In the Admin > General Settings > Discovery screen, you can set device locations based on IP range and organization. You can do this manually for each organization or IP range, or upload a CSV file that contains location information. This information can then be applied to devices already in the CMDB, or during the discovery process, to set their location.
