Spectrum NewMM.pl script doesn't properly convert devices managed through a Secure Domain (Legacy KB ID CNC TS33238 )

The current NewMM.pl script doesn't take into consideration if a device is managed through and SDC or not and will cause devices to go into an initial state if they were converted with the NewMM.pl script.  A workaround is to edit the NewMM.pl script and add new attributes to the Transfer_Attributes section (0x12ad1 # Secure_Domain_Address,  0x12c05 #  Secure_Domain_Display, 0x12c04 # Secure_Domain_Name) and create a relationship to the SDConnectorProcess (0x4c10002).

Engineering is currently working on adding this capability to the NewMM.pl script out of the box so devices managed behind an SDC will properly convert with the NewMM.pl script.  This functionality will be added in an upcoming Spectrum 8.1 Hotfix and 9.1.3.  The release note entry will read as follows:

Spectrum NewMM.pl script doesn't properly convert devices managed through a Secure Domain

Problem Environment:
Spectrum 8.1.0
Spectrum 9.1.0
NewMM.pl

Causes of this problem:
After running the NewMM.pl script all devices picked up by the script which were managed through Secure Domain Manager (SDM) were re-modeled to new model type correctly, but information about the device being modeled through an Secure Domain Connector (SDC) was missing and devices showed up in initial status.  To resolve this these devices had to be removed and remodeled manually through the SDC to get them to be managed properly.
