The Microsoft Clusters uses 169.254.x.y IP adresses for it's virtual adapters.

Since the 169.254.x.y adresses are also used as Link-Local adresses we have applied a filter to exclude them from the dscovery.

But they are needed to properly represent the Microsoft Failover Clusters.

The idea will be to enhance the MS Cluster discovery module to properly handle these virtual adapters even if the filter is applied.

The following document from Microsoft provides specific information for the MS Cluster Virtual Adapter:
