Hello, we have some virtual network device in our environment, sepcifically some VirtualWanAccelerator.
Since they are virtual, they are discovered by the VmWare discovery as Unix CI but since they have an SNMP agent, the SNMP discovery sees them as a netdevice.
Each time these discovery job runs, it deletes all the attributes and relations to the CI and recreates them all, based on the result of that specific job.
Even the CreatedBy and the CreatedTime attributes are updated as if that was a new CI discovery.
Our understanding is that this is the expected behaviour of the discovery jobs, because they see the CI as a different type.
We think that, with more and more specialized virtual devices, that the VmWare discovery should includes some logic to deal with those conditions and avoid these unecessary back and forth between CI types.
