Now that we are all on the same page here. As Mike mentioned RDM is not topology aware so it will discover all the devices out there in whatever order the discovery process finds them in.

The IDENTIFY_DEVICE message (Section 10.11.1) is meant for you to issue a command that allows the user to visually identify which device it is and then set the DMX Address or any other configuration parameters for that device as appropriate.

So when you get an IDENTIFY_DEVICE with the Identify State set to ON, then you would strobe that letter for example and then the user could assign the right DMX Address or associate with which ever letter/device you want in your application and then it could automatically set the DMX Address.
