Introduction:
There are times when clients need to have two different UIM domain instances interact with each other.
Below are two supported methods
1) remote probe monitoring
2) cross domain hub queue posting.
 
Question:
I would like to monitor my dev environment from my production environment to make sure it is up.
Can I do this?
Will it cause any problems?
 
Environment:
UIM 9.0 and earlier
 
Answer:
Currently, there are two methods for having different UIM domain instances interacting together.

below use case:
1) In PROD, you have set up remote probes to monitor the development infrastructure with probes such as net_connect and sqlserver.

2) You post you alarm and QoS data from one UIM domain to another domain via hub post queue.

Both of these scenarios are supported and should not cause any type of problem.
