I have encountered a problem while validating ietf-netconf-notifications netconf-config-change notification while following NMDA. The RFC [1] says that the "target" instance-identifier in this notification should be validated against operational datastore. In my use-case there was a running datastore modification and the "target" was not found in the operational datastore so the notification failed to be validated. I still believe the notification should be valid and this seems to be the result of a flaw in the specification somewhere. Thanks for any input.
