Fixed problems in Geneva Patch 3 Hot Fix 1

Problem Short description Description Steps to reproduce
Persistence

PRB658455

Reparenting from [ cmdb_ci ] to [ cmdb ] is causing a long upgrade completion time, with the potential for data loss during the upgrade ServiceNow engineers have determined that one of the maintenance activities executing during the upgrade, reparenting cmdb_ci to cmdb, is causing significant delays leading to extended upgrade durations. In limited situations, it is also possible to lose changes made to records on these tables while the upgrade is running.

Instances with more than 2 million records in the CMDB tables have experienced extended upgrade durations of at least 30 minutes.

During the table maintenance, new changes made to records in the affected tables may not be preserved. Because of the sensitivity to timing, we cannot reliably predict when the issue may occur. Since the change to the CMDB record is lost when the upgrade completes, we consider this defect to have a high impact.

Refer to the Known Error article (KB0563571) for details.
