Client Device Type NOFP

    Posted Jan 27, 2020 09:06 AM

    Hello everyone

     

    Does anybody know what Device Type "NOFP" means? Ik looks like some devices are not profiled correctly on Instant clusters (firmware 8.6.0.2).

     

    So far, I've seen apple devices and Nintendo Switch devices been tagged with "NOFP"

     

    Is there anything that could be done to prevent this?

     

    Kind regards

     

    Wouter

    NOFP is displayed under certain cricumstances, if the device OS could not be profiled. It should though show "Unknown" IMHO.

     

    You would have to open a TAC case to get your specific case analyzed if that is an issue for you.

    I've starting seeing this too after a recent upgrade to 8.6.0.6 firmware.
    I don't know what the NOFP devices are, yet, or what they were detected as previously.

    NOFP are devices that IAP does not have finger print for
    see by upgrading to the latest version in 8.6.0.x resolves it.

    Thanks.  The lack of known fingerprint does make sense.
    Currenty it's some android tablet devices being seen as NOFP.

    We're already on 8.6.0.8-8.6.0.8_79369.  Do you know how 'latest' we need to be please?

    8.6.0.13 is as latest as you can go at the moment (in the 8.6.0 release). There is also 8.7.x, 8.8, 8.9.. but you may try with 8.6.0.13 first, then better to open a TAC case if it still doesn't work, as the fingerprint may just be unknown at the moment.
