During a problem management review, what will be the discussion points for a problem where root cause could not be identified and its next steps. Please share your thoughts.

Is this an exam question?

Do you mean the "root cause" has not been identified or cannot be identified?

Problem Logging, Categorizasion, Prioritizasion Investigation and Diagnosis?

The Problem's findings to the CSM and create workaround if possible, create Known Error Report and see if Change is needed.

This is not an exam question and the root cause cannot be identified.
During problem review meeting with the stake holders, such problems should also be discussed and we currently do the following,
1. Understand the business impact
2. Technology impact
3. Identify the risks, mitigation plan and its implementation.

Is there anything else to be discussed apart from the above.
