Network Objects Properties

Every network object contained within the network structure available in the Remote Installer has a number of properties. Most of the properties are detected during the network enumeration process and are overridden during every enumeration. Unlike this, the description property is used to enable the end user to provide some information that will be stored permanently for this object. To review and change the object properties, you should select this object in any view and press the Edit button from the Organize Ribbon group on the Home page. This action is also available in the pop-up menu of a view. Let us review the range of properties available for each type of objects.
