Host vs network

I recently had a eureka! moment when I realized while talking to a colleague that everything that is a single address is a host record, not a /32 'network'.  I realize that seems obvious, but I've never been able to add a host because of this error:

 

At least one host address must belong to an existing network if DNS is not configured for this host.

 

We're only using IPAM, not DNS or DHCP, so of course I unchecked 'Enable in DNS'.  So I've got the Add Host Wizard with:

Name (my hostname)

IPv4 address

Type = Private (which I don't think matters, but it's not inheriting the value and it should)

 

Anyway, with all that entered, I get the 'At least one host...' error above.  If I enable DNS (which I don't want or need to do), it requires me to select a zone, but no zone exists  because we're not using DNS.

 

I get the same error if I try a CSV import.

 

What am I missing to be able to get this (and many other) hosts imported?

 

Thanks!

Oh, and I should say...

 

192.168.192.164 is the host I'm trying to add.

192.168.192.160/28 exists as a Network Container.

I think I figured it out.  192.168.192.160/28 was a container, and it should have been just a network.  Now to figure out how to convert all these /32s to hosts... Smiley Sad
