I can't see the message in the snippit you provided, but it looks MH is reporting a problem with (Audit) Sync Links because MH was not able to successfully scan the link tables of the following devices:

$l_front_porch,
$l_back_hall_bH, 
$night_mode,

That last one looks like a scene, which may be out of sync simply because it is a scene controlling one or both of the prior two objects.

So, run the "Log Links" voice command on each physical device listed above.  It will print out a message in the print log.  I suspect it will say they are out-of-sync.  If you see that message you should run "Scan Link Table" on that specific device.

If the scan completes successfully, MH will have an accurate understanding of the state of these devices and you will be able to run (AUDIT) Sync links successfully.

Hi Kevin,

Okay. ... completed,   with one "problem device" remaining.  I cannot
get my front porch light to sync up completely:

AUDIT sync all links from the PLM shows one issue:

involving the following objects remain out-of-sync: $l_front_porch,
$l_back_hall_bH, $night_mode,


These three are probably listed as failures because they all are linked
together:  night_mode (scene),  keypad button H,  and front porch light

But when I try to sync the links,  it fails:

This is the front porch link table:

Any suggestions on how to get beyond this one?   It seems to be a stuck
link on the PLM.   mh won't delete it, and can't add it.

Thanks,
George
