Question:

What happens when a Vendor Certification (VC) is added or Vendor Certification priority (VCP) is changed?

Environment:
CA Performance Management
Answer:

1. If you change a priority group, it will trigger a full rediscovery of everything with the metric family applied.

2. Adding a vendor certification to the end of the priority will rediscover all devices that do not already have a vendor certification for this metric family and the metric family is applied to the device.

3. Any other changes will rediscover everything LOWER IN PRIORITY than the change with the related Metric Family applied
