9.2.0

Address Manager's IPv4 address discovery and reconciliation service discovers IPv4 addresses on your network.

Using a specifically defined discovery engine in the policy, you can explore your network from one or multiple routers and layer 3 switches for a host's IPv4 addresses, hardware addresses, interfaces, VLAN and port information, and their DNS host names if DNS is available. The discovered results of a reconciliation policy are stored in a JSON file in the Address Manager file system and then read by the reconciliation service to compare the result with the existing IPv4 addresses in Address Manager.

After running IPv4 reconciliation policies, JSON files that contain discovered results are kept in the Address Manager file system until you run the API method again.
