Reconciling the discovered device information into Address Manager - BlueCat Address Manager - 9.4.0

Address Manager Administration Guide

Product name
BlueCat Address Manager

After invoking the SSH discovery utility, you can now reconcile the discovered data into Address Manager without running the actual discovery.

To reconcile the discovered data:

  1. Upload the discovery file (.json) generated by the SSH discovery utility to the /data/discovery/ directory on your Address Manager server.
  2. Rename the discovery file to blockIDpolicyID.json. The blockID will be the object ID for the IP block containing the data and policyID will be the object ID of the IP Reconciliation policy.
    For example:
    • If the IP block object ID is 123 and the IP reconciliation policy object ID is 456, then the file name should be 123456.json.
  3. From Address Manager, add an IP reconciliation policy with the No discovery method. This will skip the regular IP discovery behavior at the IP reconciliation policy level.
  4. Run the IP reconciliation policy from Address Manager.
