Issue/Introduction

Summary of Requirements:

(1) Create a group MCS profile called (for an example CPU enhanced profile) in UIM Domain A
(a) Export the group MCS profile from Domain -----> we already know it works
(b) Import the same group MCS profile into Domain B -------> we already know it works

(2) Modified (over-ridden) MCS profile:
(a) Modify some thresholds or baseline values in the original group-level CPU enhanced profile created in UIM Domain A environment.
(b) Now export the modified group-level CPU enhanced profile from Domain A and import it into Domain B (whilst the original group-level CPU enhanced profile is already existing)
 

Cause

Questions:
(3) Questions:
(a) Is it possible to import the modified group-level CPU enhanced profile from Domain A into Domain B, in the presence of the already existing profile from 1
(b) above?
(b) If the import is successful, do the new thresholds and baselines values over-ride the existing ones? How does it work?

Environment

UIM 8.51
MCS 
 

Resolution

Import profile functionality is intended for creating new profiles  when we import the profile from Domain A to Domain B . If the profile already exists , it tries to recreate another profile as per functionality and does not modify the existing  one.

The creation of profiles  could fail if the max count of profiles per template is only 1 and there is already an existing profile . In this case , the original profile in domain B needs to be deleted and the modified profile has to be imported again to domain B for the new modified profile to be applied.

 The import will create a new profile  and new thresholds and baselines values are not overridden since it is new profile.

If the max count of profiles is more than 1 we can import more than one profile keeping the previous profile intact and importing the new profile.
