After Windows network polling is complete, the found devices are placed into subgroups of the Unassigned devices administration group. This administration group can be found at Advanced → Device discovery → Domains. The Domains folder is the parent group. It contains child groups named after the corresponding domains and workgroups that have been found during the network polling. The parent group may also contain the administration group of mobile devices. You can configure the retention rules of the unassigned devices for the parent group and for each of the child groups. The retention rules do not depend on the network polling settings and work even if the network polling is disabled.

To configure retention rules for unassigned devices:

  1. In the console tree, in the Device discovery folder, do one of the following:
    • To configure settings of the parent group, right-click the Domains subfolder and select Properties.

      The parent group properties window opens.

    • To configure settings of a child group, right-click its name and select Properties.

      The child group properties window opens.

  2. In the Devices section, specify the following settings:
    • Remove the device from the group if it has been inactive for longer than (days)
    • Inherit from parent group
    • Force inheritance in child groups

Your changes are saved and applied.
