Good morning everyone;
I installed OCS on ubuntu server 22.04 and the installation went without any error.
The problem I have is the following:
I have configured a network in the network scan menu to locate the devices on that network.
But it does not find anything the network is created well and when I go to the IPDISCOVER menu does not appear any equipment no data of anything.
I don't know if there is any configuration or installation missing.
I hope you can help me, thanks.
Best regards

First, you MUST read the doc : https://wiki.ocsinventory-ng.org/06.Network-Discovery-with-OCS-Inventory-NG/Using-IP-discovery-feature/

The first and second paragraph

IP discovery feature allow OCS Inventory to discover all network connected devices on the network.

For this, Communication server asks a number of most “active” computers running OCS Inventory agent to scan for MAC addresses in their sub network at each run. They will not scan the entire wide area network, but only their local network defined by the couple IP address/subnet mask.

Inventory are carried out by agents (and only agents) ! Have you an agent in the network you hope informations ?
