Enumeration Wizard

Enumeration Wizard Pic 1 is designed to make the process of building the network structure fast and easy. It allows you to perform automatic network enumeration and add Machines manually via IP Ranges or a custom name pattern.

The Enumeration Wizard button from the Network Ribbon group should be used to start Enumeration Wizard which can help you with adding Machines to Network Browser for further processing.

After Remote Shutdown has built the network structure, it can be used to create any specific structure in the Custom Grouping context. Then, the Machines from the Network Browser and/or Custom Grouping contexts can be processed by the application. The Enumeration Wizard welcome page displays built-in help information on when this wizard should be used and how it may help you, as well as a warning of possible situations that might be unexpected for you.
