OMS - Offline Map Submit issue with new firmware release

With the new AREDN release (3.22.6.0), the OMS.exe (v1.0) tool removes nodes from the AREDN map instead of adding or updating them.
Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Confirmed

I can confirm that 3.22.6.0 from the Basic Setup page removes nodes from the AREDN Mesh Network Map when executing the Upload data to AREDN servers command.  I verified that two of my nodes were on the map, then uploaded to AREDN, and then reloaded the map page and those two nodes disappeared.  My test used two Rocket M5 XW nodes.

I don't know if that is what you are referring to as OMS.exe (never heard of that one before).

OK, having read the link you gave, I am going to guess that this is the same background problem that has existed for the past month or two wherein uploading data to the AREDN servers results in the node being removed from the map.  It does not seem to be related to AREDN firmware release version.

BTW, the description and instructions on that page are rather contradictory.  The description says that it is for updating map info for nodes that have no internet access, but steps 3 & 4 state that you must be plugged into a node that has internet access.  Am I missing something?

Yes it's difficult to get the wording right.  For AREDN networks that have chosen to not allow Internet access over the mesh RF ("Allow others to use my WAN" in node setup is NOT CHECKED) this program can get the mesh nodes information (lat/lon, etc.) and send them over Internet to the AREDN map, but the PC running it must have Internet access.

I've been using the program since Darryl - K5DLQ first made it.  Hopefully he will get a chance to look into this issue.
