At this moment we have 3 CiscoWorks servers in 3 data centers (runs the master DCR) (runs a slave DCR) (runs a slave DCR)

A Peer server User and password are setup on all servers

A System Identity User and password are setup on all servers

Self-signed certificates are created on all 3 servers and the Master certifcate is copied to the slaves and the Slave certificates to the Master.

Those are valid

In the DCR on the master there are 682 devices (when I select 'All Devices')

In the RME on the master I see

RME/Devices/Device Mgmt: 715 devices

RME/Config/Archive Mgmt: 715 devices

In the RME on the slave I see

RME/Devices/Device Mgmt: 673 devices

RME/Config/Archive Mgmt: 366 devices

In the RME on the slave I see

RME/Devices/Device Mgmt: 702 devices

RME/Config/Archive Mgmt: 390 devices

My question :

How is it possible that the RME slaves have such a different number of devices?

All suggestions/explanations are welcome ...

Assuming the servers are not integrated with ACS, or they are integrated with ACS, and you are using the same user on all servers, the most likely causes of the discrepancy are one, that RME auto-manage is disabled on the servers, and you have manually managed different devices in each server, or two, the servers all have different Common Services MDF versions. If the MDF is different on the master vs. the slaves, then some devices might not sync correctly between the master and slave.

Check Common Services > Software Center > Device Update > CiscoWorks Common Services to make sure the MDF version is the same on all servers.
