Hi, We are running LMS 3.2 (windows) and I have a group of switches I am trying to monitior in DFM.

I have discovered the devices in device management successfully. Then I import the devices into DFM they always go into a questioned state.

Several attempts with the same results have been tried.

I checked in MARS and I see denies from my LMS server to the devices Im trying to import to DFM.  The traffic seems to be in relation to when Im attemping the imports to DFM.  The denies are on UDP-137.  Is this port needed from LMS to the device for DFM to discover and monitor it ???

I have increased the SNMP Timeout to 14 seconds 3 retries

DFM version is 3.2.0

Credentials are correct for the monitored devices

No, udp/137 is not required.  The devices must be pingable and reachable via SNMP.  Make sure the LMS server can ping the management IP addresses of these devices.
