The NFA Data Source fails with the error "DS_PRODUCT_ID_CHANGED error for the NFA data source" which can be seen in the DMService logs.

 

 

Environment

CAPC or NPC with an NFA Data Source

Resolution

On NFA:

1. Use this URL on the NFA Console server to get the product id: http://localhost/reporterdatasource/productsyncws.asmx

2. Click on the 'ProductID' link. 

3. Click on the 'Invoke' button on the next page.  

 

This will open a new window with the product ID as a string.  Take note of this new product ID:

On CAPC:

1. Open a CAPC shell

2. mysql netqosportal -unetqos -pPASSWORD (enter your custom pasword)

3. select * from data_sources2\G;

- confirm the "SourceType" of the NFA data source

- EX: update data_sources2 set SourceGUID='1234567890' where SourceType=2;
