Understanding Identification Rules
What is the purpose of the attribute "conditiontype" in the identification rules?.
We have problems with node reconciliations rules (UCMDB merges input CI with already UCMDB CI) and we have discovered that the problem is the next attribute-condition, which is part of one of the validation-criterion:
<attribute-condition attributeName="ip_address_property" includeNullValue="false" conditionType="contradictionOnly" matchNameOnly="false">
The node in the UCMDB contains an empty value in the ip_address_property
The input node contains an empty value in the ip_address_property
With the previous attribute in ConditionType="contradictionOnly" the UCMDB merges the input node and the UCMDB node (which is not what we want)
With the previous attribute in ConditionType="approveAndContradict" the UCMDB creates a new node in UCMDB (is that we want to do)
The problem is that we have computers with dual partitions and we want that UCMDB discover them as different CI's.
The identification rules merges the nodes and the result is that we have a node which contains the software that are in the two partitions.
Is there any solution or other way to remediate this?
