For Example:
set ncm_tftp_wait=1 and ncm_startup_wait=1
DE419130
Symptom:
SNMP devices modeled using Auto-Discovery method are not discovered. Even if VNA integration is enabled the auto-discovered models do not reconcile with VNA integration data. Entities for virtual interfaces & tunnel, and so on, coming from VNA are not created in the SpectroSERVER.

Resolution:
The fix avoids access violation while discovering IPv6 address and thereby SpectroSERVER does not crash.
DE421596
Symptom:
In Legacy
Spectrum
-UIM Integration, when UIM models are removed from group, VMware sync delta processing is not detecting the model removed from group and retaining it in inventory.
Resolution:
VMware sync delta processing now detects the model removed from group and moves the model to unreported inventory.
