If you are using Inventory 3 and you wish to connect to ILMT v9.x using the Snow integration manager API connector, please note the following workaround - this DOES NOT apply to Inventory 5.

 

After configuring the SIM and ILMT connector:

 

Work around step:

Day 01 (1st time Aggregation - Should be done by doing manual aggregation of both connectors)

- Scan and process the inv data from VSphere Source to Snowdb by IDP

- Scan and process the inv data from BigFix API Source to Snowdb by IDP

- Run Data Update Job

 

Day02 and onwards (If we set both connectors on daily schedule aggregation)

- Scan and process the inv data from BigFix API Source to Snowdb by IDP

- Scan and process the inv data from VSphere Source to Snowdb by IDP

Note: We just reverse the order of processing the data from both sources.

 

In essence the IDP will not process duplicates on the same day, so certain data does not come through. This workaround solves the initial de-dupe issue and can then continue as normal
