Issue/Introduction

Versions of probes are stored as numerical values within CM_NIMBUS_PACKAGE database table. This removes any information with respect to whether it's an HF probe or an MC probe making it challenging to determine versions installed

Cause

Limitation

Environment

Release : 20.3

Component : UIM - DISCOVERY_SERVER

Resolution

Unfortunately, UIM does not support providing version level (hotfix) on the CM_NIMBUS_PACKAGE backend table. 

This table has been disabled by default since UIM 8.4 and hasn't been available, and it is only available changing the default config key. (KB6529 -> enable_cm_nimbus_package

Whent this key is enabled the CM_NIMBUS_PACKAGE is populated, but only with base versions, not the HOTFIX level.
