Ran a network scan and found an IP address linked to Super Micro Computer, Inc. The IP doesn't show in DNS or DHCP. I can remote into the device with the following screen that shows
scan I believe they make motherboards, servers and are built into printers, copiers, etc. and I know they're a legit company. However I'm having a hard time locating the device to see how it's configured and why it shows on the network.

Search your switches to verify on which port that IP is connected. Find the MAC address.

Agree with nickoarg. You've got the IP address so now login to your switch and references the mac address table. Default login for supermicro is usually ADMIN with no password.

Found the server or device, not 100% I'm still digging but I have it isolated down to the NIC on the new BDR I recently installed. Interesting I powered down the BDR and it was still available I had to unplug the NIC on the BDR to isolate it. Appears it's tied into virtualization and the NIC.
