Deleted computers on parent NS recreated without resource information(e.g IP, accounts, OS) - after differential replication.
This was not introduced in ITMS 7.1 SP2 MP1 Rollup v3 (See HOWTO81832) but will become visible to customers after applying Rollup v3.
Steps : 1. Create-Parent Child Hierarchy. 2. Install some agents from child machine. 3. Replicate computers up the hierarchy (i.e. Replicate computer from child NS to parent NS). 4. Go to Parent NS & delete replicated computers from Parent NS. 5. Again run differential replication up the hierarchy.
Expected Result: Deleted computers should get fully recreated with all information after differential replication.
Actual result : Deleted computers recreated without information from dataClass
Known Issue. It is a DataClass replication issue
This issue has been reported to the Symantec Development team. This issue is targeted to be fixed in ITMS 7.5 (Orion).
Workaround: Clear out the reference for those resources on the ForwardingHistorySummary table on the source NS (usually the Child NS) and the differential replication should take care of the rest.
