Data Discovery filter

Unanswered Question
Oct 30th, 2007

Is there any way to set the device discovery so that if it finds two ip addresses that belong to the same switch (more than one vlan int), then it only adds one instance of the switch instead of an instance for every ip add it finds?

I have this problem too.

Assuming Discovery supports the device, it will only ever add one instance of the device to DCR even if the device has multiple IPs. Discovery will attempt to learn all of the IPs from the device by polling the ipAddrTable. It will then determine a unique management IP and hostname for the device. It will be that value that is sent to DCR.
