DFM daemons are not fully up or down and most of the UIs are throwing errors. Why?
A. Check the pdshow output and netstat -a -n -o -b to check if there is any port conflict. Also, check if there is ekrn.exe (security related application) which might be interferring with LMS. If so, stop this service and restart the CiscoWorks daemons. This solution can solve the issue. Q. In DFM all the devices are in known state but when a device in the Detailed Device View (DDV) page is selected, DFM displays the objects (for example, power supply, fan, interface) and its’ instance name, but says status is not available. Also, there are no alerts from any device. Why? A. Check if monitoring at Polling and Threshold UI is disabled for all groups or for your problematic group. If so, enable monitoring and apply the changes. Then you can see the values in DDV and alerts at AAD.
