What is the purpose of this service?



Release : 10.x/ 21.2.x

Component :NFA VNA data collector service


This is a optional component 

Unless you have actually configured the VNA Collector component, this service cannot be started. 

So in the vast majority of environments it is normal behavior that this service cannot be started.

For more information on configuring the vna data collector service if you intend to use it, please see below links:
