Network Flow Analysis 21.2.6+ Sync problem after upgrade


Article ID: 231353


Updated On:


CA Network Flow Analysis (NetQos / NFA) CA Performance Management - Usage and Administration DX NetOps


After upgrading Network Flow Analysis to 21.2.6 you will be unable to synchronize with or view NFA data within the NetOps Portal 21.2.4 or prior.

The same goes for the opposite direction. NetOps Portal 21.2.6 will not support NFA 21.2.4.


Release : 21.2.x

Component : NETWORK FLOW ANALYSIS, DX NetOps Portal


Aside from general RIB issues (viewing NFA data in the NetOps Portal), you will also see issues while trying to sync SNMP profiles.

In the ProductSyncLog on the NFA Console, you would see this error:

12:48:15 5 - Push: SNMP Profiles
12:48:16 5 - Push:

NFA 21.2.6+ requires NetOps Portal (CAPM) 21.2.6+. You will get the above error as well as see no data for NFA views in the NetOps Portal. Please upgrade to NetOps Portal 21.2.6+.
