Content of the computer.yml file (disconnected scenario)
Available from 9.2.5.
The computer.yml file contains information about computers that are scanned with the disconnected scanner. It is used to catalog scan results and correctly display them in the user interface of License Metric Tool.
Starting from application update 9.2.25, the file is recreated during every capacity scan to ensure that changes of IP addresses or host names are captured.
