NNMi to uCMDB Push job.

Hello Experts,

I have gone through the NNMi to UD push job manual and it says it will cretae all the CI's as Node only in uCMDB. after this, if i discover the network devices in uCMDB and update, will it change the CI Type to proper CI. or it will cretae the new CI's as Switches,Routers,Firewall etc..

Thank you.

    When the CI comes in, it willl pass reconciliation engine, in this case, if your incoming CI have enough attributes, uCMDB will help to correct it.

    NNMi will push all nodes, then deltas to the configured interval of a full sync (by default... 24 hours).  You should extend that full sync to 168 hours (once a week) to keep NNMi from constantly running the full sync.  It will push a node CI type, but if that exists in UCMDB, it will prefer the lowest possible type (e.g. let's say UCMDB discovered it at a switch, NNMi will update the switch).  Also, make sure you are only pushing CI Types you care about.  Most customers don't need/want/use hardware boards, vlans and physical ports.  Those can cause millions of new CIs, so make sure the use case you're using supports the data you're sending.
