NSM- device needs validation message-- what does it mean

In NSM, when you hover over a managed firewall, what does the validation status of "needs validation" indicate and how do I correct it?

Hi Mjsatt,

from the NSM Concepts and Examples manual:

 

Needs Validation. Indicates that a configuration or parameter has not been validated.
Although NSM automatically validates all parameters when entered, this icon might
appear for a template-driven value after you have changed a template. We highly
recommend that you validate all parameters before updating a device.

 

 

So it it probably because you're using templates in your configuration :smileyhappy:

The Admin Guide is available here:

Ciao!

Daniele
