Load balancer fields

Discovery stores load balancer information in the following fields.

Note: By default, the system uses the discovered IP address of a load balancer for the CI record. This can be the management IP created for the device that is used in the Discovery schedule. For instructions on how to force Discovery to use the IP address of the load balancer's NIC rather than that of a management IP, see Configuration item (CI) IP address selection.
