What percentage are these devices stuck at in discovery? 10%, 40%..?

100% all devices are still in the learning status. I also noticed just now when clicking on DFM > Configuration > Polling and Thresholds > Polling Parameters I get an error:

Could not retrieve current data since the PTMServer process is down.

Please restart the process and perform this operation again.

However ptmserver is running... (Program started - No mgt msgs received) I've stopped and started it a few times, but i still get the same error.

I meant are the stuck at 10% learning, 40% learning? Not the quantity of devices stuck

There is another bug CSCsm04957.

Perhaps this one is what you are hitting if you have .Net Framework 2.0 SP1 or 3.0, please uninstall it.


I'm working with a TAC engineer at the moment and at first she thought it was a DNS issue due to errors in PTMServer.log and DFMLogServer.

however DNS was working fine so we dumped the DFM db's copied a new sm_sms.dll library to CSCOpx\objects\smarts\lib and started the services back up. So far (fingers crossed) DFM is behaving properly. DFM is now moving devices from learning to known and we're currently @ 40% complete. Also the configuration screens are no longer throwing error messages.
