Network Discovery Question

Network Discovery Question

Network Discovery Question

You know when you enable network discovery and key in the subnets & masks etc etc etc and then network discovery later on shows these subnets with locks against them.  What does the lock mean, cos some have locks and some dont, plus it also picks up other subnets that werent specified.

Any ideas?

Who's that girl! :)

RE: Network Discovery Question

Locks indicate that Network Discovery has successfully identified these subnets and have "locked" them into place.  Its a sign that the specified subnets are valid and SMS recognizes them.
