Effects of Deleting a Connector on Configuration Items

Applies To: System Center Service Manager 2010 SP1

Many of the configuration items that are found in the Service Manager database are the result of the data imported by using connectors. Therefore, if a connector is deleted, the configuration items associated with that connector will also be deleted, except where the configuration item is related to an active incident or change request. If more than one connector defines a configuration item, the configuration item will be deleted when all of the contributing connectors are deleted.

If you are creating a new connector to replace an existing connector, create the new connector first, and then synchronize the new connector before deleting the old connector.
