DFM devices in Questioned State

Unanswered Question
Feb 1st, 2010

I have a number of cisco WS-C4510R series L3 Switches in a questioned stated.

Is there a package I need to download for DFM to recognize these devices?

I'm running LMS 3.2 DFM 3.2.0

I have this problem too.

What is the reason DFM is reporting for why the devices are questioned?

This is the error msg I am receiving.

I think there was a problem initializing DFM.  Try rebooting this server, then see if you can move one device into the Known state.  Note: you must reboot.  Do not simply restart Daemon Manager.

Thanks that looked like it may have worked for me.

The thing that concerns me is I have a weekly rediscovery in DFM that causes all my devices to go into a questioned state when I come in on tuesday, and I have to manually perform discovery for like 10 devices at a time. Doing all 450 devices at one time will cause me to grow gray hairs quick.

Should I disable discovery and do it manually?
