Issue/Introduction

I am attempting to copy/rename a probe in the Archive, but the copy/rename option is grayed out for some probes.  This seems to only affect probes which require an individual license.

Environment

Release : 9.0.2 and earlier

Component : UIM - INFRASTRUCTURE MANAGER

Resolution

This is a limitation of the UIM licensing model, probes which require a separate license cannot be copied;  this is because when you copy a probe it gets renamed to something else (since you can't have two probes with the same name) or if you rename it, the name of the probe will not match the license anymore, and the license could no longer be validated.  License validation is based on probe name so that is why this limitation exists.

This limitation is removed in UIM 9.20 and higher where the licensing model has been changed to Perpetual licensing.  Once you have upgraded then you will no longer face this issue.
