    Description

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Discover a host using a Discovery Rule
        1. Discovery rule checks for IP range and Discovery Status = Up
      2. Add the host using a Discovery Action
        1. If <Discovery Rule>, Add Host, Add to Group
      3. Change the IP address of the host in your environment
      4. Delete the host from Zabbix

      Result:

      1. Zabbix re-adds the host using the old IP address

      Expected:

      1. Zabbix does not re-add hosts that are not discovered or contactable.

      Screenshots

      1) Device not discovered for over 8 days

      2) Device having to be disabled by Administrators because of erroneous rediscovery.
