Default End System Batch Import

I have a long list DNS servers around the globe I want to import and using the "Add end system" one at a time will take forever. I found a batch import which appears to be a CVS file but can't find what the format of the CVS is. Does anyone know what options there are?

IP, Name, Device Group, etc...

I suggest you do an "Batch Export End Systems" to a CSV file, then you can follow the same format for import. Try it.

Yes, wonder got a smart way.

You can add one or two devices, then batch export them and follow the exported CSV format.

Also, you can follow the User Manual if you got any questions. Press F1 key in NetBrain main window to launch the manual, then select
Administrator Manual > 5. Maintain the Workspace > Add devices manully > Add an End System

Thanks for the pointers, they are a step in the correct direction. I say a step because the data required for the batch import is taking longer to gather then it would to simply import 70+ servers one by one. It seems that if you don't have all of the fields completed NB says the import worked but nothing new shows.

I am being forced to go to an old tool (that NB is supposed to replace) in order to gather the data for the CSV to import the systems. I hope this is simply a lack of understanding how a new tool works...
