Upon startup of the SS service, I received this error on all SpectroSERVERs:

Release : Any

Component : Spectrum Core / SpectroSERVER


Invalid Expression in the watch.


To determine which watch (or watches) cause the error, open the OneClick Administration page and click on Administration - Watch Reports.  In the Watch Reports window, select Generate Report:

In the output, search for "Invalid Expression" or "Bad Attribute ID"

For example:

To destroy the watch, run a locater search for the Model Type the Watch is on. In this example, it will be "Model Type Name equal to Gen_IF_Port".  Select one of the ports, and open the Thresholds and Watches view.  Find the watch, and destroy it.  You will need to recreate the watch if it is needed:

Edit or destroy the watch.

Additional Information

Take note if the watch has make inheritable set to true.  If it does, you will need to edit or destroy the "base" model type it was created on.  Usually this is the Gen_IF_Port or GnSNMPDev model type.
