Hi,I've installed IPM 2.6 and I've to import a set of target hosts.

There are some ip address like 172.16.x.0/32 and other like 172.16.x.1/32

I notice that only the routers with L0 IP address like 172.16.x.1/32 are loaded into IPM.

All the configuration on the firewalls and snmp are right.

Is it possible that IPM doesn't load a router with ip address like 172.16.x.0 /32?

That is correct. IPM 2.6 has a hardcoded check to make sure the last octet is not 255 or 0. IPM 2.x was created when /32 loopback addresses was not possible, and is entering end of life status. Such addresses are supported in IPM 4.x. I suggest you look into upgrading to LMS 3.0 or higher.
