Network Advisor (Host Port Mapping won't open)

We recently upgraded from DCFM 10.4.5 to the Network Advisor v11. I have noticed that when I try to access Host Port Mapping nothing opens. The Network Advisor windows becomes inactive and I can no longer access any menu, function etc. The rest of the OS works fine, no impact but the only way I can close Net Adv. is to kill it in task manager (it does show as running). I have tried this using the client on a workstation (XP) on the server (2008 r2) and another server instance (2008).

Any ideas?

Jason,

not sure.

I wrote:

1) Similar Issue

2) in VM environments.

Now is a question, are you in VM Environment ?

Yes, the NA is hosted on a VM. We do not however manage anything to the VM level, only physical hosts.

Defect ID: DEFECT000341722 Technical Severity: Medium

Summary: Even after renaming or deleting the Host Port Mapping, the changes are reflected only after the next discovery cycle for both VMM and host adapter dialog

Symptom: The user has to wait for the next discovery cycle to get the changes

Workaround: Host discovery will succeed upon next lazy polling since the conflicting host enclosures are deleted.

Feature: VM Support. Function: VM Discovery Setup

Reported In Release: Network Advisor11.1.0. Probability: Low

I guess that problem isn't what I am experiencing. We cannot even open the Host Port Mapping section of the GUI to attempt changes.
