Nodes don't have IP Addresses. Interfaces have IP Addresses. Nodes have 'SNMP ipAddress' for a field, but for a router that won't always give you what you are looking for. Study the object information for the kinds of devices you want to help you decide on the best criteria for your smartset.

I'll give it a shot, thanks
Have you specified “IsNode=true”
That will exclude interfaces which *would* be IP addresses in your smartset.
Been there, done that, got the embarrassing PMR to prove it.
Just ask Paul.

Smartset rule is Definition 1 String attr: ' IP Address ' ~'10.10..'
Looking for IP that contains 10.10 and anything after that... It finds them, Most resolve as IP a very small number resolve as names.
Display OBject information properties show 10.10.10.10: servername.domain.com
Doesn't make sense to me....
Is the smartset comprised of nodes or interfaces? What is your smartset
