    Why doesn't Discovery synchronize Load Balancer Service IP addresses to CMDB?


    Please see BMC Community post

    Per Development, this is by design:

    "Unfortunately, IP address information for LoadBalancerServices cannot be synchronized into the CMDB. The BMC_IPEndpoint CI has to be related with a BMC_HostedAccessPoint relationship to a subclass of BMC_System. The LoadBalancerService is mapped to a BMC_LogicalSystemComponent, which is not a subclass of BMC_System. 

    The name attribute contains the configured name of the service. You could choose to populate Name, ShortDescription or Description of the BMC_LogicalSystemComponent CI with the IP address and port instead, but there is unfortunately no good place to put the information separately." 

    NOTE:  Discovery can create BMC_Dependency relationships (instead of BMC_HostedAccessPoint) between the LoadBalancer services (BMC_LogicalSystemComponent CI) and the IP addresses (BMC_IPEndpoint).  
    To do that, use the sample pattern, attached.  The pattern is compatible with Discovery 11.3.
