Is there a limit to how many IP addresses can be imported in a text file?

Created: 24 Jul 2013 • Updated: 25 Jul 2013 | 8 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I'm running SEP version 12.1.2015. I'm upgrading machines using IP addresses imported from a text file I have created. The most IP addresses I can import at one time is ten. Is this the limit? Is there a way to import more? I have tried text files with 10, 15 and 20 IP addresses. Ten IP addresses work fine. Anymore then 10 IP addresses in the text file and after clicking Import, OK. Nothing shows up in computers.

I'm able to import more than 10 without issue. Are you getting an error of some sort?

My file consists of an IP address on each line saved as a .txt file.

Currently on RU3.

You should be able to import more than 10 at a time, but you'll only see 10 being pushed to at a time.  once those 10 are done, it should move onto the next batch of 10.

IIRC, there should be a setting where you can change the "Number of concurrent connections" up from 10 (default) on the Push Deployment Wizard (the one found in the Tools/Part2 download.  Note, this setting may not be available on the Client Depployment Wizard from the SEPM console.)

Hello,

Check this Thread with similar Query:

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/client-deployment-wizard-1

Here are the answers:

How many parallel deployments occur at once?

It is 10 parallel deployments by default.

Is there any theoretical and/or practical limits to how many clients a customer should push out in one deployment?

No there should not be any limit.  SEPM will just send out a few at a time until all clients have the new package.  Just keep in mind that the more you send the longer it will take.  If it takes too long some of the users may shutdown their computer before the package gets pushed to them.

No errors. My file consists of 1 IP address per line also. If I have 10 lines (IP addresses) after I import the file the 10 IP addresses show up and I move over to continue the install process (enter credentials etc..). If my text file has more then 10 lines (IP addresses) after importing the file I see nothing. No IP addresses to move over.

Never Mind. Don't know what changed between yesterday and today, but I tried it one more time and it now accepts more IP's (Imported one with 20 IP's).

Thanks for the suggestions.
