Issue/Introduction

We keep getting alarms like this since I moved one of our vCenters to a new copy of the vmware probe.

The Baseline transform failed to resolve the metric instance id for the monitor instance named: "ESC:VM_CPU_AGGREGATE:"."xxxxxx" for probe: /<UIM_domain>/<UIM_Hub>/<UIM_Robot>/vmware

The Baseline transform failed to update the metric instance id from: [/<UIM_domain>/<UIM_Hub>/<UIM_Robot>/vmware:idsProbe:<vcenter>:4c4c4544-0056-4e10-8042-b8c04f343832:Memory, "ESC:HOST_MEMORY:"."usage"] to: UnknownMetricInstanceID on for probe: /<UIM_domain>/<UIM_Hub>/<UIM_Robot>/vmware.

The Baseline transform failed to update the metric instance id from: [/<UIM_domain>/<UIM_Hub>/<UIM_Robot>/vmware:idsProbe:<vcenter>:4c4c4544-0056-4e10-8042-b8c04f343832, "ESC:HOST:"."Status"] to: UnknownMetricInstanceID on for probe: /<UIM_domain>/<UIM_Hub>/<UIM_Robot>/vmware.

Environment

  • Release: 20.3, 20.4
  • Component: UIM - VMWARE

Resolution

1. Select the controller probe on each robot listed in the alarm messages

2. Press Ctrl-P to open the probe utility

3. Click the 'cogwheel' icon and select/enable Expert mode

4. Run the niscache clean callback->   _nis_cache_clean

5. Then run the reset of the robot dev id and restart the robot-> _reset_device_id_and_restart

6. Acknowledge the baseline transform alarms

Additional Information

Note these ppm errors could be associated when using other probes such as snmpcollector, for example:
