Issue/Introduction

I am unable to update the alias field in USM on devices interfaces.
When trying to update the alias field in the USM on the interfaces of a network device it is not getting updated and it reverts back to what was discovered originally.

Cause

This is caused by an internal issue in discovery server. The workaround for this problem is to restart the discovery server probe; however the fix resolves the issue. 

Environment

UIM 8.5.1/ UIM 9.0.2

Resolution

The hotfix discovery_server-9.0.2.HF1 resolves this issue.
This hotfix can be deployed on UIM 9.02 but has also been tested on UIM 8.5.1 successfully.
