Issue:
In USM, when trying to configure/change an existing monitor for the processes probe in the "Monitoring" tab, I am unable to open the profile.

The following error is displayed:

Unknown Error
Cause:
This occurs for profiles where a "reference device" is chosen, but that reference device may no longer exist in the database.
Resolution:
This issue is resolved by applying MCS/USM patch 8.58-HF5 (or higher, if available.)

The latest available version of the hotfix will always be located at the UIM Hotfix Index.
