Hierarchy Replication function for anything imported by Connector Solution

Hi All,

Currently we find that if we need to import a bulk list of subnets and sites using connector solution, it is not able to replicate down to child servers (in a hiearchy architecture).

In order for replicaiton to work (as advised by Symantec support - opened case), we had to run an SQL update statement to change the GUID of the imported items to a GUID that allows replication within NS.    

It would seem that we will have to run this SQL update statement everytime we need to import using connector solution to allow it to replicate down to child servers, which we don't have luxury to do, due to organization security reasons (restricted DB access).

Furthermore, we cannot implement a workaround not officially supported by Symantec.  

Therefore we would like to request for a feature change that can allow items imported using Connector Solution to be replicated down through hierarchy replication. 

As both Connector and Hierarchy Replication are Altiris features, they should be designed to work together.

Thank you!
