Batch and individual synchronization
Nodes can be synchronized into BMC CMDB as a batch. From a list view in the UI, select one or more nodes, then choose CMDB Sync from the Actions menu. The submenu enables you to choose to Sync to all connections, or any one of the configured connections.
The menu items appear for any root node kind (Host, MFPart, NetworkDevice, Printer, SNMPManagedDevice, and Storage System).
To see the progress of the synchronization, you can follow the link in the notification to the status page.
A node is only added to the synchronization queue if it is not already queued.
Synchronizing an individual device
From a node view page for a root node kind, you can choose CMDB Sync from the Actions menu. The submenu enables you to sync the device to all connections, or any one of the configured connections.
Synchronizing deletion of root nodes
When root nodes are deleted in the BMC Helix Discovery datastore, the associated CIs will be deleted in the CMDB. In continuous synchronization mode, deletions are automatically queued. To synchronize deletions using batch or individual synchronization, view the destroyed node(s), and then choose Sync with CMDB from the Actions menu.
There are many ways to find destroyed nodes. One simple way is to choose Advanced Search, select the Include Destroyed check box, and then choose the node kind (for example, Host) that you want to search for.
