Creating or Updating a Site

FlexNet Manager Suite 2021 R1 (On-Premises)
Site information (including child subnets) is most easily populated by importing from Active Directory (see Importing from Active Directory). Use the following process only when you need to manually create (or edit) a site record.
Note: Individual records can either be imported from Active Directory, or maintained manually; but not both. If you allow it, information about this site is updated by any future imports from Active Directory on your inventory beacon. This includes deleting the site record if it is absent from an Active Directory import. Of course, you may mix and match the methods across different site records, maintaining some manually and others by import from Active Directory; but for each individual record, you must choose one or the other method.

To manually create (or update) a site:

  1. Navigate to Discovery & Inventory > Subnets.
    FlexNet Manager Suite displays the Subnets page.
  2. Do either of the following:
    • To create a new site record, in the Actions column against the Sites entry in the first row, click +. A new row is added to the list, in edit mode.
    • To edit an existing record, click the edit (pencil) icon at the right end of the site's row.
  3. Specify the site name in the first column.
  4. Ensure that the Update automatically column displays No. (In edit mode, this column displays an drop-down list.)
    This is the setting that determines whether the site record is maintained manually (No), or updated automatically (Yes). If you allowed this control to display Yes, the record you are creating will be over-written by the next Active Directory import; and if the site does not exist in that import, the record is removed. To continue maintaining this record manually, choose No.
  5. Click the save (diskette) icon to save the site record.
The new site record relocates in the list, and displays in (case-sensitive) alphabetical order within the list of sites. You can now create subnets in this site (see Creating or Updating a Subnet).
