Manual Discovery how to specify device type

  • 1.  Manual Discovery how to specify device type

    Posted 05-27-2020 04:37 AM
    We have several parts of our network where we cannot run ICMP based discovery, so from our CMDB we are able to generate an xml formated file for the nodes in these regions of the network.  However although it works we would like to specify at import time we would like to specify the data for number of the fields such as user_tag, device type.  In the cm_data_import examples we do not see how to specify other field data such as  "device type" or "distributed", does anyone know where we can find the information about
    • what fields/columns we can specify?
    • what the xml tag to field name mapping is?
    • what data type and/or enumerated data is allowed in the field?

    Thanks, Andrew

    I believe the cm_data_import only allows for the populating of the cm_computer_system table and the Credentials tables.
    The other fields such as user_tag, device type, etc are store in the cm_computer_system_attr and currently not support with this import process.
