What is the cause?
Answer:
The DBconv utility cannot convert an SNMP capable Model Type to a Pingable Model Type.
It does not handle the mismatch of common attributes.
As you saw in the error, the converter was failing on the common attribute for SNMP Community String, which exists on all SNMP capable Models Types, but does not exist on the Pingable Model Type.
The utility is meant to convert one SNMP capable Model Type to a new/different SNMP capable Model Type.
The only solution is to delete the host models and rediscover them as Pingable devices.
