When an ESX Server is migrated to a different vCenter, a new record is created with a relationship to the new vCenter, but a record with a relationship to the original vCenter still remains.
Steps to Reproduce
- Discover vCenter.
- Notice that a relationship is created between the ESX Server and vCenter.
- Migrate the ESX Server to a different vCenter (new).
- Discover the vCenter that contains the migrated ESX server.
To avoid creating duplicate records during an ESX server migration, upgrade to a version that contains the fix:
- Jakarta Patch 8
- Kingston Patch 2
If you have already experienced this issue, you must remove the duplicate record manually.
