Error Message :
U04005690 Processing completed.  ‘0’ uses replaced

When renaming the Hostgroup object, a message pops up to indicate whether the objects it’s linked to should be updated. After accepting, the confirmation message window indicates 0 objects were affected when there were actually some objects updated.

Steps to Reproduce:
  1. Create a HOSTG (Hostgroup) object and add Windows hosts to it.
  2. Reference the HOSTG object to several JOBS objects in the Host field of the Attributes tab.
  3. Rename the HOSTG object to a different name.

Resultant Behavior:  A message window pops up to inform the user that there are x number of uses linked to the hostgroup object when renaming it.  B default, the list of use cases are all selected.  Click OK to confirm.  A confirmation window shows up and says, “U04005690 Processing completed.  ‘0’ uses replaced.”  All the references uses have not been updated with the new HOSTG name.  Still shows the old one.


Cause type:
Root Cause: Rename Hostgroup object returns 0 affected
