Title: Invalid address qualifier

Description:The specified address qualifier is not valid. Each target address has four parts with periods separating the parts, and can represent one or more IP addresses. Each part consists of a number between 1 and 254, a range of numbers, or a wildcard character (* or ?). A range of numbers is specified as n-m where n is the lower limit and m is the upper limit. If the lower limit is not specified (for example, -127), 1 is used. If the upper limit is not specified (for example, 17-), 254 is used. A * represents the range of numbers 1-254. A ? represents the matching part of the agent's IP address. For example, if you specify ?.?.?.* and the executing agent's address is 172.17.7.55, the result is the same as 172.17.7.*.

Title: Non-ITA candidate

Description:Symantec Intruder Alert was not found at the address or on the host, and the responding hardware does not appear to be a candidate for a Symanec Intruder Alert installation. Common measures employed to secure computers can prevent the Discovery module from identifying remote operating systems. The more secure a remote computer, the less likely the Discovery module will be able to identify the operating system. If the Discovery module cannot identify the operating system of a remote computer, Symantec ESM reports this message.
