After upgrading the DX NetOps 21.2.x you may notice some of your data sources fail to sync with the NetOps Portal. This can occur between DX NetOps Portal and Network Flow Analysis, Spectrum, or Data Aggegator. The error would appear like this in the DMService.log:

ERROR | pool-2-thread-2          | 2021-10-14 17:29:02,489 | com.ca.im.portal.dm.productsync.DataSourcePoller                 
Data source Network Flow [email protected] encountered an error while processing a sync request.  The problem is in the data source, not CAPC.  Check the logs for the data source to determine the cause of the problem.  The following stack trace shows the context of the sync request:

From the NFA perspective, you will see no errors in the ProductSyncWsLog when you run into this issue. The only indication is from the NetOps Portal Data Sources page where it will show a sync failure, as well as the DMService log error above.
