Load Balancer Configuration For TADDM

As per the documentation, there are 2 ways to configure the load balancer for TADDM. One way is to run discovery job with load balancing across Discovery Servers taking IP's from different files and create new scope. The limitation with the current configuration is that the file name in which the IP addresses are defined should be exactly named similar to the discovery pool name configured in "collation.properties" file. We cannot have multiple properties defined in "collation.properties" file.

    Load balanced discoveries are in use by other TADDM customers either via the method described or by using multiple discovery scope.
