When you change schema (add/delete/modify) using any of the explicit schema tasks iManager 2.6 or 2.7, the changes are reflected in the cached schema that you can view with the schema tools immediately. However, if you modify schema using ICE, the changes are not reflected in the cached schema. This makes it so any changes made via ICE (or any other external tool) aren't visible in the current iManager session. It may appear that such changes have not yet been committed to the DIB, but in fact the changes are done, just not reflected in the local iManager schema cache.


This has been fixed in iManager 2.7 SP2.  As of this version, the schema management tasks for class and attribute information will refresh the schema cache held in iManager.
