Symptoms

The messages that communicate status of PolicySync between devices can arrive unordered.

Impact

This issue can lead to devices believing that the policy sync is still in progress, even if all devices have the updates reflected within their policy.

Conditions

Many conditions can affect this, such as file size and network latency. The issue is further exacerbated by NTP not being configured on all devices within the device group.

Workaround

This issue has no workaround.

Fix Information
