We ran into an issue using CMS. We are in the process of upgrade to PI 7.0.
We had the CMS on our DEV system and the CMS Tracks page has the following details.
<b>CMS on Dev</b>
<i>DEV URL: DEV
QA URL: QA
PRD URL: PRD</i>
In this process of upgrade, we copied our DEV system along with CMS on to EVAL. Before we upgrade DEV box, we tested the CMS that is copied on to EVAL. So we set the following on EVAL CMS
<b>CMS on EVAL</b>
<i>DEV URL: EVAL
QA URL: DEV
PRD URL: <NONE></i>
We made sure that CMS service user & pwd are correct and exported a namespace from EVAL. Expectedly, it landed in DEV system. It worked fine.
Now, we had an emergency transport to be sent to PRD, so we have to do it using DEV CMS as PRD is specified there only. Before we did this, we removed the settings from EVAL CMS.(QA URL: DEV)
But, when we export the namespace from DEV, the transport goes in to status 'Waiting for Export' and doesnt appear in the consolidation tab of DEV CMS.
We tried to click on the button 'Update CMS', but it did not work. We are wondering if DEV system still assuming that it is linked to EVAL CMS. Do we explicitly specify the CMS hostname for an XI environment (in exchange profile or somewhere else)? Or, does the XI system determine it at runtime?
Please help me in understanding this flow logic between CMS & XI. I highly appreciate your inputs.
Hope I'm clear, let me know if you have questions.
The last thing we want to do is restore the DEV box using the back-up copy.
thx in adv
