Devices send updates

The only thing that is displayed is whether a device is online or offline.
Enable automatic registration (without MAC address import): This option is provided for the following scenario: The MAC addresses were already imported before the devices were added to the UMS database. As a result, preparations such as creating profiles can be made before the devices are delivered. If the option is enabled, each device will automatically receive the intended settings after it has logged on for the first time.
Further information regarding the importing of devices can be found under Import Devices.
Each device that contacts the UMS will automatically be registered in the UMS database.
A device that contacts the UMS will not be automatically registered. (Default)
Maximum number of concurrent threads for device requests: Defines the number of concurrent device requests that are accepted by the UMS. (Default: 50)
If you require higher performance and high availability, you can use IGEL UMS High Availability (HA).
No limit: Additional request will have to wait until a thread is available. (Default)
Queue size: Defines the queue size. Additional threads that exceed the queue size will be rejected. (Default value: 0)
Adjust Names of Devices
Adjust UMS-internal names if network name has been changed
If the network name of the device is changed, the UMS-internal name will be set to the new network name.
The UMS-internal name will not be set to the network name of the device. (Default)
Adjust network name if UMS-internal name has been changed
If the UMS-internal name of the device is changed, the network name of the device will be set to the new UMS-internal name.
The network name of the device will not be set to the UMS-internal name. (Default)
Enable naming convention
The UMS-internal names of the devices will be formed from the prefix and a consecutive number.
The names of the devices will not be allocated in accordance with the naming convention. (Default)
Prefix: Prefix for automatically allocating names. In the neighboring field, the current naming convention comprising a prefix, a dash "
-" and a consecutive number with the number of digits specified under Min. digits will be shown.
Minimum digits: Minimum number of digits for the consecutive number. The digits not allocated will be filled with zeros. Examples: If 2 is selected, the consecutive number of the first device will be 01, if 3 is selected, the consecutive number will be 001 and so on.
Apply to all devices: If you click on this button, a confirmation dialog Apply Naming Convention to All Devices? will apper. If you confirm it by clicking Apply to all devices button, all devices registered in the UMS will be renamed in accordance with the naming convention.
Reset counter and renumber
When all devices are renamed (as a result of clicking on Apply to all devices), this will result in continuous, end-to-end numbering. All names will be reallocated, even for devices that were already renamed in accordance with the naming convention. If numbers have become free because devices were taken out of service, these numbers will be used for other devices.
If all devices are renamed in accordance with the naming convention, numbers previously allocated will be retained. Only devices that do not yet conform to the naming convention will be renamed. (Default)
