I've recently upgraded Ciscoworks LMS to version 3 from version 2.5. Since the upgrade, a majority of my DFM devices are categorized as "Questioned". I've tried rediscovering these devices and the problem remains. I've also tried deleting them by disabling the synchronization with the DCR and then deleting the devices without success. The deleted devices move to a pending state and then after many hours move back to being questioned. All of the devices in either a questioned or a pending state show an error message under "Data Collector Status Information" that reads "DataCollector request timeout(internal problem)". Any ideas / help?
Okay, looks like there are some DFM database problems. Let's reinitialize all of the DFM databases, and see if we get into a better place.
NMSROOT/bin/perl NMSROOT/bin/dbRestoreOrig.pl dsn=dfmInv dmprefix=INV
NMSROOT/bin/perl NMSROOT/bin/dbRestoreOrig.pl dsn=dfmEpm dmprefix=EPM
NMSROOT/bin/perl NMSROOT/bin/dbRestoreOrig.pl dsn=dfmFh dmprefix=FH
Then delete NMSROOT/objects/smarts/local/repos/icf/DFM.rps and DFM1.rps.
