Chapter 1: Configuration ManagementDatabase (CMDB)This chapter includes:CMDB Overview12IPv6 Support for UCMDB/Universal Discovery13Configuration Items (CIs)14Query Nodes and Relationships15History Storage and Purging in UCMDB15Unified Resource Manager (URM)17CMDB OverviewThe CMDB is the central repository for the configuration information that is gathered from the DataFlow Management (DFM) process and the various third-party applications and tools.The CMDB contains all the configuration items (CIs) and relationships created in Universal CMDB,whether created automatically from the DFM process or inserted manually. The CIs and relationshipstogether represent a model of all the components of the IT Universe in which your business functions.The CMDB stores and handles the infrastructure data collected and updated by the DFM process. Formore information about the DFM process, see the Universal CMDB Discovery and IntegrationsContent Guide.The IT Universe model can be very large, containing millions of CIs. To facilitate their management,you work with the CIs in a view that provides a subset of the overall components in the IT Universeworld.You use factory views or views defined in the Modeling Studio to display and manage the CIs andrelationships in the CMDB. The views enable you to focus on specific IT areas and are available via theCI Selector. An example of a view is shown in the following figure:Micro Focus Universal CMDB (10.33)Page 12 of 315

Administration GuideChapter 1: Configuration Management Database (CMDB)The CMDB also contains the TQL query definitions that are used to query and retrieve data from theCMDB for presentation in the view, and the configuration item type (CIT) model, a repository for the CItypes used to define the CIs and relationships. For information on TQL queries, see Topology QueryLanguage in the Universal CMDB Modeling Guide.IPv6 Support for UCMDB/Universal DiscoveryUnless otherwise specified, UCMDB and Universal Discovery support the IPv6 protocol as follows:lUCMDB Web UI (including Jetty Web Server and Java Applets) works over IPv6.lThe JMX interface as well as pure Web UI (such as the login screen) support IPv6.lData Flow Probe to UCMDB server communications can be done via IPv6.lProbe clustering supports IPv6 communication.lUCMDB Server can connect to the MS SQL/Oracle/PostgreSQL databases over IPv6.lHigh-availability clusters (at the JGroups level) can communicate work over IPv6.lThe UCMDB Browser supports IPv6.lIP ranges for Data Flow Probes and Management Zones can be defined in the UCMDB userinterface in IPv6 format. For details, see New/Edit Range Dialog Box in the Universal CMDB DataFlow Management Guide.lSome of the discoveries and integrations provided out-of-the-box with the UCMDB work over IPv6.Among those supported are:Micro Focus Universal CMDB (10.33)Page 13 of 315

Administration GuideChapter 1: Configuration Management Database (CMDB)ooBasic network discovery:lPing sweeps can be done over IPv6 rangeslThe IP/MAC Address Harvesting job was extended to read IPv6 specific ARP cache tables.Inventory Discovery and its various components are IPv6 enabled:lInventory Scanners (off-site scan file saving)lScanner Scheduler (download of scanners and configuration)lStore and Forward ServerlUD Agent (Communication and Call Home)lInventory Discovery by Scanners joblInventory Discovery by Manual Scanner DeploymentNote: For a complete list of discovery jobs and integrations that support IPv6, see "UniversalDiscovery IPv6 Support" in the HPE UCMDB Discovery and Integrations Content Guide Supported Content.lThe UCMDB SDK API works over IPv6.The SDK can be accessed via IPv6. APIs that take IP addresses can accept IPv6 addresses (e.g.for Discovery ranges).lWeb services work over IPv6.Configuration Items (CIs)A configuration item (CI) is a component of the CMDB that represents a physical or logical entity in thesystem, for example, hardware, software, services, business processes, and customers. The CIs arepart of the IT Universe model in the CMDB, where they are organized into a hierarchical format basedon the interdependencies in your organization's IT environment. The interdependencies in UniversalCMDB are called relationships.Each CI belongs to a configuration item type (CIT). The CIT defines a category of CIs used inUniversal CMDB. The CITs provide templates for creating the CIs and associated properties in eachcategory. You view and manage the CIs in the CMDB using views. Each view shines a spotlight onpart of the IT Universe model.For further details on working with CIs in Universal CMDB, see "Working with CIs" in the UniversalCMDB Modeling Guide.Micro Focus Universal CMDB (10.33)Page 14 of 315

Administration GuideChapter 1: Configuration Management Database (CMDB)Query Nodes and RelationshipsQuery nodes are the components from which TQL queries are built in Enrichment Manager, ImpactAnalysis Manager, and the Modeling Studio. For details, see "Creating TQL Queries in the UCMDBManagers" in the Universal CMDB Modeling Guide.Note: When working in views, query nodes are called view nodes in the Universal CMDB userinterface.Relationships are connections defined between CIs. Relationships are defined one at a time for eachpair of query nodes in a TQL query. For details on working with relationships, see "Working withRelationships" in the Universal CMDB Modeling Guide.History Storage and Purging in UCMDBHistory StorageUniversal CMDB stores history for all CIs and relationships. By default, history is stored for allattributes of a CI or relationship. You can configure specific CIT attributes to be excluded from historystorage by selecting the Not Tracked for History qualifier for those attributes. For details on editingCIT attributes, see "Add/Edit Attribute Dialog Box" in the Universal CMDB Modeling Guide.Baseline ProcessStored history events for CIs and relationships are grouped by CI type. For each CI type, the historyevents for each CI instance are stored by monthly periods with a separate database table for eachmonthly period. At the beginning of each table, the current data for all CIs and relationsh
