Validation failed
Click close to close dialog

Cause

If the "root" Service Desk Manager connection has been configured and it connects correctly, but the cloned instance fails to connect, the possible cause is one of the below:

 The "identifier" (instance id) contains a space in the name
•  The cloned connection configuration was not "saved" before clicking on "Action > Validate Connection"


If the "root" Service Desk Manager connection has been configured and it does not connect check the Knowledge base article: UIM - SDM Validation failed errot KB000073055 

 

Environment

UIM 8.x
sdgtw 1.40

4) Submit and click reload

5) When the page reloads the new cloned connection is displayed. At this point it is compulsory to "Save" the configuration. As the "Save" button is greyed out, make any change to the configuration. At this point the "Save" button will be active > Save the configuration. If no change needs to be done, make any change and revert back the change. This way the "Save" button will be active > Save the configuration. 

6) Check the connection by going to Action > Validate the connection 

Additional Information

If you clone a SDM connection without following the suggestion described above the probe can enter a failure state. To recover the situation, open the probe raw configure and delete the profile from the raw configure and restart the probe.
