OVO unix CI import

Hi,

I already run the import using ovounixci once to import CI from OVO Unix.

I wonder what happen if I run it again. Will I get a two CI or it will update the field if have changes in IP address?

Pls advice. Points will be given for every respond. :)

Re: OVO unix CI import

Hi,

It is based on the Key mapping, if the key is already in the CMDB, it will just make the modification to the data, otherwise it will created new CI.

If the keys are not defined, then it will create multiple CI's

Just see the import mapping (for unique key)

Hi
Venky is right. And if you don't use Search code as unique, then possible use in import map more then one Unique keys, exmpl. if you set two keys on searchcode and category, and import CI with category "network card", if two CI exist with same searchcode, then update process go only by CI with cat. Network cadr. If only one CI with same searchcode exist with category Workstation, then will be created one new CI with category Network card.
