Description (partial)

Cisco Identity Service Engine (ISE) discovery accounts which are locked down is deployed along with policies that allow it to talk to only specific DCNM IP/subnet . This Cisco Identity Service Engine (ISE) settings  in conjunction with Cisco DCNM and the switches are running NXOS 9.3(4) or lower, the NXAPI calls to the switch from DCNM may fail. Therefore, if EPL is enabled with NXAPI, meta information (VRF Name, VLAN, Port) does not get collected or reflected in EPL dashboards.

This issue is seen when all of the following conditions hold:
(1) Cisco Identity Service Engine (ISE) should have a discovery account locked down. The discovery account is only permitted to send commands that originate from the DCNM server IP addresses
(2) Switches are running NXOS 9.3(4) or lower. 
(3)EPL is enabled with NXAPI
