network discovery problem



I have a lot of subnets being discovered that are spread accross multiple oncommand servers. It seems on any server that has more than two subnets, there will be exactly one subnet that is not being discovered. I can go in and do 'dfm discover id' and it will say network is being rediscovered, but when i list the networks it does not have a discovery time, and the filers on that network arent being discovered.  I am running the lastest version (5.2) on windows 2008.  Any thoughts?




   Can you show an example ? Also pls paste the output of dfm network list. Do check what is the value for the following options

dfm options list | findstr /i discover




As you can see from the below output one network hasnt been discovered. I ran dfm discover on it, but in the discovery log it dosnt show up.
