In the initial import, service models from the exported file are imported into the sandbox, the product attempts to reconcile service model members from the originating system with entities on the target system, and output files are generated to show the result of the reconciliation attempt and actions to take.
- Generate an export file (see Export service models).
Copy the export file to the target system and log in (see Preparing to import).
Initiate the import.
zenimpactimport export*.graphml | tee reconcile.$(date +%s).txt
The exported data is imported to the target system; the first reconciliation attempt is made, and generated text files report the results.
Review import results in file reconcile.*.txt, and then proceed as follows:
- If Nodes unreconciled is 0, proceed with Adding the service models to the target system.
- If Nodes unreconciled is 1 or greater, proceed with Reconciling originating and target system entities.
