When host fails to scan, lookup FQDN to determine if IP has changed

On ocassion a host may change IP addresses, and even though ADDM has a list of all possible IPs from it's last scan, none of these are any longer valid.

 

A good percentage of the time the FQDN of the Host wouldn't have changed even though the IPs have.

 

If ADDM were to lookup the FQDN of the Host pertaining to the IP being scanned and resolve the IP held by the DNS servers, it could report that the current IP was no longer valid and/or attempt a scan of the new IP.
