When attempting to use grloader to create relationships between CIs I keep getting the following type of errors in the log file:
01/12 15:44:14.544 INFO grCIRelationPending 88 grCIRelationPending1000 deferring relation creation between (name(SomeCIName)) and (name(SomeOtherCI))
01/12 15:44:14.556 INFO grCIRelationPending 140 grCIRelationPending8400 undeferring relation creation between (name(SomeCIName)) and (name(SomeOtherCI))
01/12 15:44:14.664 ERROR grCIRelation 694 ERROR: Provider CI not found. name(SomeCIName)
For this post I had to replace the server name with the text "SomeCIName" and the database CI with "SomeOtherCI".
I've tried both Excel formats with column headings:
name,class,Family,is used by
In either case grloader still kicks out the seed file with the errors seen above.
