Automation Policy & Hierarchy

Created: 23 May 2013 | 3 comments

When I create an Automation Policy on the Parent NS, the Child NS gets it via replication which ends up sending me two emails when policy runs.

Does this mean all Automation Policies must be created on the Child NS to not receive two emails?  

What if I have an Automation Policy that deal with Asset which the Child NS won't have the information.  What do I do then?

Thanks.

This is an unfotuante side effect of having hierarchy replication replicate all configuration and management items.

If you don't want an item replicated that would normally be replicated, then you could change the attributes of that item.

If the automation policy is enabled on the parent and child, then yes you will obviously receive an email from the parent and child nodes.

Is there a way to change the attribute of one Automation Policy on the parent so it does not replicate?

UPDATE Item SET Attributes = '4' WHERE [Guid] = 'automation policy guid'
