Network discovery doesn't detect and scan network devices like switches via SNMP. Since the upgrade to 8.1 RU2 and RU3, the network scan detects devices for IPs that do not exist.
If a non-existing IP is scanned, it detects the device as unknown.
Steps to reproduce:
Total devices processed: 1
New devices added: 1
Devices updated: 0
Device add failures: 0
Device update failures: 0
Symantec Management Platform (SMP) 8.1 Release Update (RU) 2, 3 and 4.
