deletion of instances from Configuration Items doesnot remove any data

Hi,

 

 

UD had discovered almost 11000 ips and 1500 servers. But customer insisted to start fresh discovery so I tried to delete all available instances from the CI type "configuration Iteam"(right click=> show element instances=>select all =>delete)

 

 

But It shown me the message saying  all removal will take place as soonn as UCMDB updates.

 

 

I want to know whether UCMDB takes time to delete the data ? I checked thesame next day but all data was accessible from UD inspite of deletion.

 

 

Please let me know how to start fresh discovery with same database instance.

 

with regards,

Nick

Re: deletion of instances from Configuration Items doesnot remove any data

Did you try to remove several CIs and not all at once?

 

Generally, when you need to remove all CIS of certain CIT, the easiest way to go is to us efollowing JMX ->

Model Services -> deleteByClassType.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi Dima,

 

 

Thanks for the reply..

 

I tried to delete all instances at a time. it confirmed the deletion but shown message that UCMDB will update all removal but it never worked.

 

 

I will check suggested option.
