Issue/Introduction

I want to apply the procedure "Map Alarms to New CI Entries" but I  see some deletes into the UIM database.

Does this mean I will lose the metrics data I collected until now for DB2 databases?

 

Cause

Changing the DB2 probe to use a new device identifier

Environment

UIM 8.x, 9.x, 20.x

DB2 probe 42.X+

Resolution

Yes, that is correct.
If you change the CI entries you are basically creating a new identity for the DB2 instance so any previously collected information will not be seen.
