Environment

AppManager 5.x
AppManager 6.0.x
Discovery_UNIX Knowledge Script

SuSE Linux
Sun Solaris
Red Hat Linux
IBM AIX
HP-UX
FreeBSD

Resolution

Modify Discovery_UNIX to search for "/dev/" instead of "/dev".  This can be done on approximately line 1180.  The original line reads:

my @listOfLogicalDisks = grep(/^\/dev/,

The modified line should read:

my @listOfLogicalDisks = grep(/^\/dev\//,

Cause

The Discovery_UNIX script has an incorrect regular expression.  It reads "grep(/^\/dev/,"  and thus will match /dev as well as /devices.
