I'm not interested in the desktops in our environment and therefor when they show up in discovery, I add them to the "ignore list".
I'm concerned that since the desktops get their IP addresses via DHCP and may change, that something new will acquire an old DHCP address and not be a desktop. In which case I want to evaluate the discovered node to decide if it needs to be monitoried.
If the "ignore list" is based on IP address, then the new node will be ignored.
If the "ignore list" is based on the nodename (as determined by snmp, wmi, dns) then the new node will not be ignored and will re-appear in the discovery output.
Can someone enlighten me pls.
