You can add devices to the ZENworks database by importing their information from a CSV (comma-separated values) file. When you import information from a CSV file, you map the CSV fields to ZENworks database fields. At a minimum, the CSV file must contain the DNS name or IP address for each device you want to import. The CSV file can contain the information in any order. An option to choose the column (which contains a valid number that is to be mapped with the selected device field) is provided while importing devices from a CSV file.
IMPORTANT:While importing network devices, ensure that you specify networkdevicedata in the first line of the CSV file. If networkdevicedata is not specified, then the Administrator-Defined Fields defined for Network Devices are not displayed while importing devices from the CSV file.
The imported network devices are listed in the> > page.
