Thanks. I managed to upgrade the WCS to

But now i am facing a strange issue. After the upgrade i cannot track any of the clients.

All the controllers were synchronized with the Location appliance and the synchronize icon is also coming. But out of 22 controllers , the NMSP status is in the inactive state for 21 controllers.

Only one controller is having NMSP active state. Did you come across with such issues.




Please find the attached screen shot for your reference.

Thanks & Regards

Your LA version needs to be the as per :

Clean up the Location Appliance, SSH to it and follow the steps:

1. Stop the location server. root @ localhost > service locserverd stop Shutting down locserverd: Request server shutdown now... Server shutdown complete.

2. Move the existing database file root @ localhost > mv /opt/locserver/db/linux/server-eng.db /opt/locserver/db/linux/server-eng.db.old or Use the command: rm -rf /opt/locserver/db/linux/server-eng.db

3. Start the location server back. root @ localhost / > service locserverd start Starting locserverd:

4. Run the synchronization job in WCS. Run the Location Server Synchronization job after selecting all the network designs and the controllers form the sync page.

This should resolve your issue.
