I have a FAS2050 running ONTAP 188.8.131.52.
DFM server is 4.0.2
Problem occurs if there are any network problems between DFM server and FAS2050 e.g. network cable is accidental un-plugged.
Although "normal" data traffic resumes the DFM server reports all sort communications errors like NDMP down, iSCSI down, NFS down.
Also DFM protection and provisioning jobs fails.
If I run "dfm host diags" every thing passes EXCEPT NDMP Connect which fails wth this error "Can't connect to NDMP server XX.XX.XX.XX (port 10000).
I have checked all the NDMP settings and they all look OK
If I do nothing and ignore the many error messages from DFM, it "fixes" itself after 4 - 5 hours.
We dont have this problem with the other two NetApp systems on our network
Any suggestions ?

Sounds bizarre, generally dfm host diag fixes such problem.
But not sure why NDMP alone takes time.
Can you do a diagnose in the NMC for such host and let us know ?
