Blade System [C7000] - HP SIM Discovery Best Practise

Hello,  we have several Blade Systems [C7000] which we monitor with HP SIM.

I'm not sure that we are discovering them correctly in HP SIM.

We traditionally discover the enclosure's OA... which therefore discovers all the OAs, ICs and iLOs.

It also at this point shows the hosts as their serial numbers.

We then discover the individual Blades in HP SIM using their actual hostnames.

Is this the right way to do it?  Is there a best practises doc we can reference?
