I'd like to set a dependancy for multiple devices, a subnet. I've read a post that mentions creating a smartgroup with a group and applying the dependancy there. Unfortunately I can't seem to create the appropriate smart group. My devices use the FQDN for both IP and system name. When I try and create the smart group using a match for an IP range I get no results returned. I basically want to add a router as a dependancy for all my monitors
My solution was a bit of a hack.
1) exported the monitors config to XML and retrieved the monitor <id> for the routers
2) exported the groups config to XML
3) used a powershell script to update the <depends> node and added the appropriate ID for the router
4) imported the XML file back in to ipMonitor
5) all is good in the world again
