The adapter has a mapping feature to route devices into specific networks or IP Availability Managers. The mapping rules allow you to specify a target destination, based on a device’s origin and other attributes, such as the IP address or name of the device.

For example, a rule could specify that for a given Network Configuration Manager network, devices coming from that network will end up in a named Smarts IP Availability Manager. For a different network, they could route to a different IP Availability Manager. There are filters available to achieve any granularity necessary for your environment. A full explanation of filters is detailed in “Configuring the Adapter” on page 170.
