How can I update device information for devices synced to CAPM from Spectrum?

Environment

Release:
Component: IMINTG

Resolution

When a device is added to Spectrum the ip address is sent to the default discovery profile, once discovered successfully it is removed from the profile. To update the information on the device(s) in CAPM/DA you do need to run a rediscovery. What we have been recommending to update the devices is that you export a list of IP address from the Spectrum system and then use that as a seed file in CAPM for the discovery. You can also schedule this discovery to run periodically.
