DFM 3.1.3 - Threshold parameter group member ??

I am very confused how members are associated to Threshold group :

1)- The trunks interface are in the "Access Port Groups 1 GB Ethernet Groups" and not in the Trunks Port Groups ? Is that normal

2) When I tried to create a new groups, It is creating it but every other manipulation on Groups give me the following errors :

Cannot retrieve the list of groups from grouping service

check in ptmclient.log

Re: DFM 3.1.3 - Threshold parameter group member ??

1. Maybe.  A trunk port to DFM is a port which connects to another device which is managed by DFM.  This could actually be a port in an access state.  If the port really is trunking, but DFM is not managing the peer device on the other end of the trunk, then DFM will treat it as an access port.

2. Do not create groups in DFM to do threshold manipulation.  Instead, choose one of the customizable interface, port, or device groups, and edit them.  Apply the desired ruleset, then adjust the grouping priorities under DFM > Configuration > Polling and Thresholds > Setting Priorities so that your customized group comes before the other system-defined groups.  Then apply your changes, and you should be able to see the matched devices.  You can then assign specific thresholds for those matched devices.
