The Automated Device Importer is a special feature integrated within the HPDM Console. The importer parses all files in a specified folder to find all devices and to import them into HPDM. Preparation HPDM preparation 1.   Create a user in the HPDM Console and assign them to the Administrators  group. Input file preparation 1.   Create a folder containing some text files. 2.   The file names are used as manual group folder, up to three levels. A file name that does not contain a “_” leads devices to the default manual group, or others. A.   For example, A_B_C_D.txt adds devices to the manual group B/C/D. B.   Book1.csv adds devices to the default manual group (others). 3.   Split the columns with either a “;” or a “,” character. 4.   The columns must be in the following order: hostname Mac Type sn OS gw 5.   The hostname and MAC columns are required. A.   MAC is used as unique device ID. Entries in the formats AABBCCDDEEFF or AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF are both accepted. B.   HPDM can send a task to rename a device if the hostname of the registered device in the database differs from the hostname assigned to the device in the input file. You can disable this function by clearing the check box in the options panel. 2  6.   The other columns are optional. They update as soon as a device reports to the HPDM Server. ã   Type —Indicates the device type, such as HP t610. ã   OS —Indicates the device operating system, such as WES 8 64 bit or HP ThinPro 4. If the operating system is not specified, the device is added to the Unidentified tab. The device moves to the correct tab when it reports to the HPDM Server. ã   gw —Indicates the HPDM Gateway ID for the HPDM Gateway that manages the device. If a HPDM Gateway ID is not specified or is not a valid ID in the system, the device is added to a random, known HPDM Gateway. You can find the known HPDM Gateway IDs in the HPDM Gateway tab in the HPDM Console. 7.   The following is an example of valid content in txt: 3  8.   The following is an example of qualified content in csv: 9.   The expected behavior is as follows: ã   All new devices are imported. ã   The First Contact Rules for new devices are not triggered until they report to the HPDM Server. ã   All known devices are ignored unless there is hostname change. Importing devices There are two ways to import devices. To import devices from the HPDM Console: 1.   In the HPDM Console, select File -> Import Devices  from the menu. The Import Devices dialog appears. 4
