Management: Auto-Populate Networking Definitions via Scan
By scanning the local IP-space of connected/configured internal (non-gateway) interfaces, discovered IPs should be auto-added to the definitions list using their hostname as the title (if available) otherwise just fill in the IP for both the address and the name.
This saves admins having to define their objects from scratch, and they can always delete the object definitions they don't want/plan to use. This should be done either automatically, as part of the wizard, or on request.
What do you think of an IP Scanner / Port Scanner. Automatically creates the objects. So you have not ever set up everything yourself. You have a similar function already in the Web Application Security. You could link the port scanner also wonderful with the IANA port list.
arpwatch (http://ee.lbl.gov/) is a nice way to discover new hosts on a network. I would like to see arpwatch included in Astaro with small Web-Configuration (whitch interfaces to scan, reports to which email etc.)

this is not the function of a utm device.
