I define all my gear under CS -> Device and Credentials -> Device Management and have the "Automatically Manage Devices from Credential Repository" box checked in RME. This works most of the time, but I'm running into a couple quirks.
1. If I create a group and make a rule, specifically that device with an IP address within a certain range is a member, and then add a device that conforms to that rule, it does not get added to the group. I tried "Refreshing" the group in RME -> Devices -> Group Administration, and that popped up a little box that said I rock, but the membership was the same as before.
2. I changed the IP address of a machine that was within the range:
Device.IP.Address range "10.39.52.[2-3]"
to be 10.39.52.222 in the Credential Manager. The box is still in the group despite being outside the range. "Refresh" didn't work there either. I also tried rebooting the daemon, but that didn't help.
I'm not clear on the Credential Manager to RME (or any other application) relationship now. Does the CM house all the credentials and get referenced all the time? Or does it simply store them and the various applications cache the information? If the info is cached, how do I pop the cache?
I am asking this now because I want to set up groups for all of the infrastructure now, but not if I have to later delete and re-create them to have the new boxes in the range recognized.
