Viewing a host container

A host container object in BMC Atrium Discovery represents a single physical device which is subdivided into multiple logical hosts, typically this would be a blade enclosure. The enclosure is discovered when a management controller is discovered using SNMP. This is modeled as a Management Controller node. The creation of a Management Controller node triggers an additional pattern which creates the Host Container node and collects additional information on the contents of the enclosure, and triggers further patterns to relate the components.

Some host containers, such as the Sun Blade 6000 system, may need to be scanned twice before all relationships are created.
