Problem:

An issue can occur in NFA 9.1.0 to NFA 9.3.0 where if you Enable/License a new interface from the “Enable Interfaces” page and start to see data on the NFA Side.  However that same interface will not be visible in NPC / CAPC.

This was a defect due to ifType handling in NFA.  You will see this error in the ProductSyncWSLog from the Reporter Console Server in the “<installdir>\reporter\logs” directory.

Solution:

This defect was fixed in NFA 9.3.1.

Please upgrade to 9.3.1 following the steps in the 9.3.1 Upgrade Guide.

Once the upgrade is complete the interfaces should sync over to NPC / CAPC.
