Control Manager allows you to recover managed products that were accidentally deleted from the Product Directory.
The following actions may also delete managed products from the Product Directory:
Reinstalling the Control Manager server and selecting Delete existing records and create a new database
Replacing a corrupted Control Manager database with another database with the same name
For more information, see Stopping and Restarting Control Manager Services.
By default, older Control Manager agents verify their connection to the server every eight hours. If the agent detects that its record has been deleted, it will re-register itself automatically.
