Issue:
When you have two data collectors how is it determined which one will discover the device?
Environment:
Any version of CAPM
Resolution:
It is random.   Each data collector does a ping discovery.  If data collector 1 responded with both ICMP and SNMP, but data collector 2 only responded with ICMP, we are going to use data collector 1.  If both data collectors responded with ICMP and SNMP, then one of them will be randomly chosen.
