    Can you no longer push an install directly to an IP address? I distinctly remember the last ERA 3.xx, I was able to manually add any computers, by name or IP address, then push an install out. I'm no longer able to find any semblance of this in the new ERA.

    How long does it take for a new computer to show up in the the computers tab?

    It doesn't seem like the Active Directory search is real-time. I can add a computer to the domain, but the ERA does not report it. Is there a way to force a refresh?

    Agreed, a terrible idea removing the feature to manually add a computer name.

    Just wanted to mention that I found a way to add a custom machine name (and I assume IP address would work also) to the push install in the event that Active Directory doesn't show the computer, even though you've waited for hours.

    Make sure the Filter pane is showing from the Remote Install screen.

    You can then right click the the Custom List and create a Custom Group.

    Type a Group Name and whatever computer names (or import from a list) into the box.

    Once it's in the list you can then right click it and start the Push Install.

    Hope that helps, it worked on the machine I tested with yesterday (Win7 x86)
