When we specify Class ID of a Configuration Item (CI) instead of Class Symbol as per below and try to update or insert the CI by GRLoader, the following error message will be written in *.err file.
Loaded XML file <class lookup='id'>300065</class>
Error "ERROR: Valid class/family must be provided for a new CI. class(300065) family(Hardware.Server) is invalid."
Class and Family fields for the CI are most important fields in order to create the CI. These cannot have lookup values specified as attribute values by design as both of these are processed by using COMMON_NAME which in case is type for "Class".
