How To

*Please NOTE: The following process has not undergone standard product QA, and is not considered a supported process. Current real-world results show that it works, but still be cautious and backup the applicable databases before executing this process.

You created a custom data class on your parent Symantec Management Platform server.  This custom data class will replicate down to the lower level servers in your hierarchy during the standard delta hierarchy replication schedule.  Once the data class on the lower level servers are populated with data, hierarchy will not handle sending this data up to the top tier server.  This is accomplished by creating a resource replication rule.

In order to create a resource replication rule follow these steps.  Pay close attention that you click on the link next to Data Classes first, and not the Resource type link.

On your lower level servers, open the Symantec Management Platform console.

Navigate to Settings > All Settings > Notification Server > Replication > Resources.  Right click on Resources and choose New > Resource Replication Rule















As seen in the screenshot above, click on the link next to Data Classes first.  

Once the Inventory Data Classes picker opens, it will be blank.  Click on the dropdown next to the Group section to bring down the list of available choices.

Navigate to Inventory > Custom and choose that.

Now under Data Classes you should see your custom data class.  Select that and click on on the arrow to move it to the right hand side of the picker.

Click on OK

You now will want to click on the link next to Resource types

Choose Computer and add that to the right hand side of the picker

Click on OK

Click on your destination Notification Server and choose accordingly.

Finally, select a schedule that is not too aggressive but will keep your data current.
