How do I keep desktops from taking up licenses on HP IMC 7.2?

  How do I keep desktops from taking up licenses on HP IMC 7.2?  (I miss Procurve Manager!)

Just setup the IMC, want to do some Auto Discovery but it keeps running out of licenses because of desktops.   Can I ignore desktops?  I just wanted switches in the system right now.

Thank you.

Are your desktops running SNMP?

If they aren't, then make sure your auto-discovery settings are set to *not* discover non-SNMP devices.

If your desktops do respond to SNMP, then look at the advanced settings for Auto-discovery, and filter out device types as required.

You might also want to think about your network design, and using dedicated management networks for your network devices. This has some security advantages, and lets you narrow down network discovery ranges.
