Adding to Collection via Host file

I'm looking for some assistance in discovering and assigning servers imported via the host file option into a specific collection. We basically have 2 collections (1 for Prod and another for QA/DEV) and we would like to ease the process of adding in new servers by having them auto assign to the appropriate collection. Is this something which can be entered into the host file perhaps?

Why not just add the appropriate IP Address ranges to the Discovery Inclusion section?
That way if you add a new server using an IP address included in the range it will be discovered.

But that still wouldn't achieve the desired solution. We need to have discovered systems added straight into manually created collections. Our issue isn't about how to discover them, but how to organise the systems once they have been discovered.
