DFM Incorrect Interface Mode

I have DFM 1.2/IDU 1.2.6 and have a problem where the Dial on Demand interfaces are not being set to ONDEMAND, they are being set to NORMAL. Consequently I get masses of alarms when the interfaces go up and during normal use.

I need to change them from NORMAL to ONDEMAND. Does any know why they aren't being set to ONDEMAND and how I can make them so.

Re: DFM Incorrect Interface Mode

Does the interface have encap PPP? What does it return if you do mibwalk on ifType?

Re: DFM Incorrect Interface Mode

I have the same problem in my ciscoworks.

And the problem exist for serial and async interface on a 3725

A majority of there interface are in normal mode.

Have you a solution ?

Thanks.

Re: DFM Incorrect Interface Mode

The "problem" that DFM weights the characteristics of each object in a special order. Because these are serial interfaces they are set to normal but because of PPP they have a max uptime associated with it.

You cannot change this for an object, -after the next polling DFM reconfiger its inventory to the old values. The way to solve this is to create a new "Polling and Threshold" Group with settings that met your needs. The characteristics for this group must be set in a way that DFM will put the interfaces in question in this group by its own. After you have made any changes don´t forget to "reconfiger inventory" and to "Save Inventory". Here are some useful links:
