When the EnableShadowIP parameter is set to TRUE (default), the IP Network probe creates a shadow IPNetwork object for each IPNetwork object to which a tagged, non-overlapping, non-VRF IP object is “ConnectedVia.” The probe uses the following naming scheme to name the shadow IPNetwork object:

IPNET-<IP network>

(Display name: [Shadow]:<IP network>)

where <IP network> is the IP network of the IPNetwork object that the shadow IPNetwork object is shadowing.

The Name Resolution probe sets the IsShadow attribute of the shadow IPNetwork object to TRUE to identify the object as a shadow IPNetwork object. The probe also creates a ShadowOf relationship between the shadow IPNetwork object and the IPNetwork object that is being shadowed.
