UCMDB 8 to SM7 Integration

While I have a deep understanding of the HP Service Manager environment, I admit I am a noob when it comes to UCMDB.  We recently had the following issue in our environment and I'm hoping someone can provide some insight into *why* it occurred:

Existing routers/switches in our environment, which previously had their host key field populated by short name, started populating by Fully Qualified Domain Name.  This led to the undesired result of passing over "new" CIs to the Service Manager environment that already existed in our CMDB.  These duplicate CI names are getting a "_1" appended to their CI name. 

While our UCMDB support guy is attempting to understand why the host key values were discovered by FQDN, I am trying to understand why the UCMDB pushes over the 'display label' field as the field to be populated as the primary key (logical.name) within the SM7 CMDB?  Wouldn't we want the UCMDB unique field of 'Host Key' to be synched up with the SM7 unique key of 'logical.name'?  We did have a lot of consultants working on this integration over the years, is it possible they modified the way the data is being pushed over to SM7?


Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated.
