Loader-messages.log message:  "[DEBUG] [10/4/12 2:45:22 PM] [] [Loader.InventoryImportModule] [197] [] [Data size mismatch Found for :ou Column size : 32 Data : <object_name>"
Last Import Results > Last Import message:  ' xxxx ZCM objects, yyyy directory matches found.  Only partial data is updated in the datastore for one or more mappings because the size of the mapped objects exceeds the size of the data in the datastore. '  (yyyy is less than xxxx)


This is fixed in version 11.3 - see KB 7014213 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.3 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at https://support.microfocus.com/kb/doc.php?id=7014213

Additional Information

The message means that the import value exceeds the maximum length of 32 characters.  The message is informational in that the data size has not been matched, but it does not indicate a failure of the import.  The LDAP imported task will truncate the value(s) but will continue on the import and upload the data up to 32 characters max to the database.
A bug has been submitted to make the message more useful and informative.
