: From 10.3.1_BMP_10.3.101, whenever any landscape (primary) goes down and comes back up again, then Spectrum will mark its state from DOWN to SYNCHRONIZED. Previously Spectrum would mark it as DOWN to INITIAL and in the next sync only the incremental sync for that landscape would occur but not the full sync. For instance, when a landscape DB is restored then it is recommended to run a full sync manually to get the full inventory synced.
