Network Segments

A network segment is a range of IP addresses that can be used to group computers and mobile devices based on their network location. Network segments can be class B or class C subnets, or any IP range therein.

Adding network segments to Jamf Pro allows you to do the following:

  • Ensure that computers and mobile devices use the closest distribution point by default.

  • Ensure that computers use the closest NetBoot server by default.

  • Specify a software update server for computers to use by default.

  • Automatically update the building and department to which computers and mobile devices belong.

  • Base the scope of remote management tasks on network segments.

If a computer belongs to multiple network segments, Jamf Pro uses and updates both IP addresses to distribute content.
