LMS 3.1. Device discovery never looks like it finishes. when you select stop discovery, it says it cannot stop and refers to the csdiscovery.log The log suggests that discovery is not running. I have attached part of the Csdiscovery.log file. the only way to stop discovery is to stop and start crmdmgtd
Try doing the following, and see if Discovery stops, and can run again. Run the following command:
Delete NMSROOT/conf/csdiscovery/DiscoveryStatusObj. Then try running a new Discovery.
No, I doubt the inventory and config problems are related.
