Issue/Introduction

We suddenly had a ton of pingable devices be discovered, how can we find where they came from and prevent it from happening again?

Environment

Release : 3.7

Component : IM Reporting / Admin / Configuration

Cause

These devices were discovered due to the Quick Discovery option being used instead of a manually created discover profile.

Resolution

As the Quick Discovery option generates a fresh discover profile that does not adhere to the Template Discover Profile if you had one set, the way to get this to not happen is a process change.  You need to omit using the Quick Discovery capability and generate a new discover profile, this profile will allow you to not discover pingables.
