Update Adapter log in SSP 6000 just as SSP343

To identify the IP or Subnet to be whitelisted.




Hi Team,

There is a difference in the way the IP/DNS are getting logged in the Adapter logs in SSP 6000 than SSP 343.
This has become an issue as we are not able to differentiate between an IP/Subnet to whitelist.
Please refer case#TS003317894.

Below are the details:

In ssp 343 based on what is coming in between the string "Addressing" and "/" - it was decided if it is an IP or Subnet.

In ssp 6000 between the string "Addressing" and "/" the IP or DNS is missing. So we are not able to differentiate if it is a IP or Subnet.
