You can create rules based on the subnet ID and subnet mask. The jobs that have a specified subnet ID and subnet mask are routed to the CCS Manager or site that you specify in the rule.
Consider this example, you want to perform a job on the assets that are on different subnets in your organization.
Subnet ID: 10.216.0.0
Subnet mask : 255.255.128.0
Subnet ID: 10.216.46.0
Subnet mask : 255.255.255.0
You can define subnet-based routing rules as follows:
Route jobs for the assets that have subnet ID: 10.216.0.0 and subnet mask: 255.255.128.0 to CCS Manager 1.
Route jobs for the assets that have subnet ID: 10.216.46.0 and subnet mask: 255.255.255.0 to CCS Site A.
You can also create routing rules based on the subnets that are present in the Active Directory site. When the subnet information is obtained, you can create the subnet-based routing rules. You can then assign sites or CCS Managers to the rule. An Active Directory site can have multiple subnets and a subnet can be part of only one Active Directory site. Each Active Directory site represents a logical boundary and all subnets in an Active Directory site are physically close, a CCS Manager that is installed in an Active Directory site can be used to collect data from all assets in that site.
