These identifiers are as follows:
Provides the primary method for an item to be identified, typically the item name. This field is mandatory for all item types.
Provides the tertiary method for this item to be identified. This field is optional.
An environment identifier is used to distinguish between multiple identical items where the primary, secondary and tertiary identifiers are all identical. For example, in a resilient environment where it is possible to have multiple virtual servers with the same name and serial number, the environment identifier allows XIA Configuration Server to distinguish between these otherwise identical systems.
Environment identifiers can also be updated manually.
