Install and Upgrade Behavior

The licenses in LMS 4.2 are based on number of devices and you can manage the following
functionalities for the devices:

Configuration Management (This function is enabled by default. You cannot select or unselect this
function)

Network Topology, Layer 2 Services and User Tracking

Fault Management

IPSLA Performance Management

Device Performance Management

There are additional licenses available for managing performance collectors.


See System and Browser Requirements for Server and Client and Application Scaling Numbers for more
details.

Install and Upgrade Behavior


LMS 4.2 provides a single install experience to you. For complete details on installation, see Performing
Installation of Cisco Prime LMS 4.2.

Note

We recommend you not to install any other product in LMS server. If LMS 4.2 and Antivirus softwares
like MCAfee, Norton and so on, are installed in the same machine, the Antivirus should be configured
to exclude the NMSROOT (LMS installation directory) from scanning. This is required because the third
party software such as Sybase, included in LMS do disk intensive operations and spawn child processes
based on the load. If the Antivirus is enabled this may not function as expected or may cause degradation
in the overall performance of LMS.

Note

Daemon Manager will start slowly during reboot. This is because the antivirus that starts during reboot
will cause delay to initiate Cisco Prime processes. If there are any Daemon Manager issues during
reboot, then you should either disable the antivirus or restart the Daemon Manager after reboot.
This section contains the following topics on Upgrade:

Overview of Upgrade and Migration

Upgrading Master-Slave Server Setup

Overview of Upgrade and Migration

User-defined groups can be created in LMS 4.2 Slave


as against previous releases like LMS 3.2 SP1 and
above. User-defined groups created in Master is
shared in Slave server.

Exporting of groups from Slave and


importing to Master is possible.
Grouping services might not work if
Master or Slave has different versions
of LMS. We recommend you to use
the same LMS version across all
servers in DCR management domain.

Exporting of groups from Master and importing


to Slave is possible

System defined (device type) groups are


separately created in Slave

Storage Area Network Support


LMS runs on Storage Area Network (SAN) which is connected to the Host server through a Fiber
Channel. The server requirements on SAN environment remains the same as the server requirements on
Windows and Solaris systems. See Server Requirements on Solaris Systems and Server Requirements
on Windows Systems for the recommended server hardware requirements.

Link Aggregation Support in Solaris 10


A link aggregation consists of several interfaces on a system that are configured together as a single,
logical unit. Link aggregation is defined in the IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation Standard.
Link Aggregation Standard (IEEE 802.3ad) provides a method to combine the capacity of multiple
full-duplex Ethernet links into a single logical link. This link aggregation group is then treated as a single
link. The server requirements on a link aggregated environment remains the same as the server
requirements on Solaris systems. See Server Requirements on Solaris Systems for the recommended
server hardware requirements.
This section contains:

Configuring Link Aggregation in a Solaris Environment

Verifying the Link Aggregation

Configuring Link Aggregation in a Solaris Environment


This section explains how to configure link aggregation in a Solaris environment. The example in this
procedure aggregates sample interfaces bge0 and bge1.
Step 1

Configure the links (in this example, bge0 and bge1) with two different IP addresses in the same
network.

Step 2

Check if both the IP addresses are reachable and you are able to telnet to the IPs. Get one public IP
address in the same subnet.

Step 3

Step 4

Unplumb both the NICs using the command:

Ifconfig bge0 unplumb

Ifconfig bge1 unplumb

Create the link aggregation group using the command:

dladm create-aggr d bge0 d bge1 2 key

Key is the number that identifies the aggregation. The lowest key number is 1. Zeroes are not
allowed as keys. The key can be of any value.

ifconfig aggr2 plumb

ifconfig aggr2 public IP address subnet mask up

For example, ifconfig

aggr 2 10.77.210.210 255.255.255.192 up.

Step 5

Add the IP address (Public IP) and hostname in the /etc/host file.

Step 6

If you cannot ping the IP address, you can set aggregation LACP mode active to off.
dladm modify-aggr t

off 2 key

Verifying the Link Aggregation


To verify the Link Aggregation:
Step 1

Check the statistics by using the following command in the link aggregated server:
dladm show-aggr

A sample output is:


Key: 2 (0x0002) policy: L4
Device

The state of the links should appear as attached in the output, else, the link aggregated server
will not work when the NIC fails.

Reboot the server by using the following command:


reboot-- -rv

Link aggregation is also supported in an HA environment. To configure link aggregation in HA


environment please refer Setting Up Cisco Prime LMS in High Availability and Disaster Recovery
Environment.

allowed to the server from the device.
2. Windows Firewall blocks the port 16236 (for UTLite Updates), by default. You should free up this port for the UTLite scripts
to run.

Note

In the Windows Firewall, ICMP inbound and outbound needs to be open. If you have ICMP inbound
open and outbound closed, then all the Fault Management devices will stay in questioned state.
While configuring your Windows Firewall, enable the ICMP options to allow ICMP traffic through
Firewall. See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc779521%28WS.10%29.aspx for more details
on administering Windows Firewall and on configuring ICMP settings in Windows Firewall.

If your LMS Server is integrated with any Network Management System (NMS) in your network
using the Integration Utility, you must perform the integration whenever you enable or disable SSL
in the LMS Server. You must do this to update the application registration in the NMS.
For help with NMS integration, see the User Guide for CiscoWorks Integration Utility 1.7. You can
find this document on Cisco.com, in both HTML and PDF form.
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/cscowork/ps3996/products_user_guide_list.html

Disable any popup blocker utility that is installed on your client system before launching LMS.

LMS 4.2 is installed in the default directories:


On Solaris and Soft Appliance: /opt/CSCOpx
On Windows, 64 bit: SystemDrive:\Program Files<x86>\CSCOpx

Where, SystemDrive is the Windows operating system installed directory.


If you select another directory during installation, the application is installed in that directory.

If errors occur during installation, check the installation log file:


On Solaris and Soft Appliance, check the installation log file

/var/tmp/Cisco_Prime_install_YYYYMMDD_hhmmss.log for LMS 4.2 installation


Where YYYYMMDD denotes the year, month and date of installation and hhmmss denotes the
hours, minutes and seconds of installation.
For example:
/var/tmp/Cisco_Prime_install_20110721_182205.log

On Windows, check the installation log in the root directory on the drive where the operating

system is installed. Each installation creates a new log file.


For example, for LMS 4.2, the installation log file is:
C:\Cisco_Prime_install_YYYYMMDD_hhmmss.log, where YYYYMMDD denotes the year,
month and date of installation and hhmmss denotes the hours, minutes and seconds of
installation.
For example:
C:\Cisco_Prime_install_20100721_182205.log

You can press Ctrl-C (on Solaris, and not on Soft Appliance) or click Cancel (on Windows) at any
time to end the installation. However, any changes to your system will not be undone.
For example, if any new files were installed or if they were any changes to the system files, you need
to manually clean up the installation directories.

Note

We recommend that you do not terminate the installation while it is running.

If HP OpenView or NetView is running on your system, installation will take more time. Disable
HP OpenView to run a faster installation.

To ensure that you have the latest device support and bug fixes for LMS you must install the latest
Device Package updates.
For download locations, see Supported Devices.

Installation Notes (For Solaris Only)

Warning

On Solaris, if you select an installation directory other than the default, the /opt/CSCOpx directory
is created as a link to the directory you selected.

If you remove this link after installation, the product will malfunction.

We recommend that you run the installation from a local DVD or a local hard drive to avoid errors
that may result from the network being slow or busy.
If you want to install from a local hard drive, you must copy the contents from the DVD to the local
hard drive. Ensure that you copy the entire contents from the DVD to the hard drive.
You must preserve the timestamp when you copy the contents from the DVD to the hard drive.

Setting Up Cisco Prime LMS in High Availability


and Disaster Recovery Environment
This chapter explains setting up LMS in a High Availability (HA) and Disaster Recovery (DR)
environment on Windows and Solaris systems. The High Availability solution is based on Symantecs
Veritas Storage Foundation products.
This section explains:

Moving LMS from non-HA to HA Environment

High Availability and Disaster Recovery- An Overview


High Availability refers to a state where data and applications are available always because software or
hardware has been installed to maintain the continued functioning in spite of computer or processes
failure.
High availability is a configuration of hardware and software that allows you to:

Monitor the services provided by a system

Transfer of those services to another system when there is a catastrophic system failure

Disaster Recovery refers to the ability to recover from the catastrophic failure of the complete primary
site because of a disaster or disruption. Disaster Recovery configuration involves the duplication of
hardware and software at a remote site, with data replication occurring on a regular basis. Only then, the
remote site can take over the responsibilities of providing the services with little or no loss of data.
The High Availability solution has the following benefits:

Reduces planned and unplanned downtime.

Allows you to enable failover between clusters in a local redundancy configuration and between
sites in a geographic redundancy configuration.

Manages applications and allows you to bring the processes online or take them offline.

Consolidates hardware in clusters.

Setting Up Cisco Prime LMS in High Availability and Disaster Recovery Environment

High Availability and Disaster Recovery- An Overview

The implementation of Symantec Veritas High Availability solution in LMS Server supports local
redundancy (HA), geographic redundancy (DR) and Replication without clustering configurations.
The following configurations that are implemented by Symantec Veritas High Availability solution in
LMS Server, are supported through the local hard disks only:

Local redundancy (dual-node within a single site)


The local redundancy configuration provides an automatic failover solution in the event of software
or hardware failures without the need to reconfigure IP Addresses or DNS entries on the switched
or routed network.

Geographic redundancy (single-node across two sites)


The geographic redundancy configuration provides disaster recovery by replicating application data
between two sites. Switch over between sites (redundant server) can be initiated manually or
performed automatically when there is a network failure or during abnormal conditions.

Replication without clustering


This refers to the replication of data across servers without creating a cluster configuration.

Note

The local redundancy (HA), geographic redundancy (DR) and Replication without clustering
configurations are not supported in a Storage Area Network (SAN) environment.

Licensing Information

VCS add-on that allows managing multiple clusters, as in a Disaster Recovery environment.
The following Symantec Veritas GUI applications are used in LMS high availability solution:

Veritas Enterprise Administrator (VEA) Console


Provides a graphical view of storage and allows you to monitor or manage storage objects such as
disk groups and disk volumes.

Cluster Management Console


Allows you to monitor, manage, and report on multiple VCS clusters from a single web-based
console. This console provides enhanced visualization of the managed clusters, and centralized
control for global applications. It also provides reports on the status of the availability of each
application.

Cluster Manager (Java Console)


Provides complete administration capabilities for clusters and different views to monitor the
clusters, systems, service groups, and resources.

Licensing Information
In a high availability or a geographic redundancy option, the LMS is active on only one server at any
given point in time. Hence only a single license of LMS needs to be procured to be shared between the
two servers (Primary and Secondary servers) running in Active-Standby mode respectively.

System Requirements for High Availability Implementation


This section explains the Operating system and hardware requirements for Veritas implementation:
Operating Systems

Solaris 10 systems

Windows 2008 64 bit Enterprise Edition

Hardware Requirements

Each server should have at least two hard disks for Windows implementation and three hard disks
for Solaris implementation. The additional hard disk should be chosen for disk group and volume
creation.

Each server should have two Network Interface Cards (NICs) assigned to it. One of the IP Addresses
can be assigned with a private IP address on both Primary and Secondary servers and they should
be connected as a direct link.
This requirement is not mandatory for a geographic redundancy configuration.

You should install Storage Foundation on servers under the Domain Controller.

You should configure name resolution for all the nodes.

General Requirements

Veritas Volume Replicator requires a static IP for replication. Make sure the system has atleast one
IP address configured which is resolved by DNS.

Setting Up Veritas Volume Replication


Veritas Volume Replicator is a fully integrated component of Veritas Volume Manager that replicates
data to remote locations over any standard IP network to provide continuous data availability.
This section explains:

Modes of Replication

Setting Up RDS, RVG and RLINK

Setting Casuser Permissions on cscopx Volume

Modes of Replication
The Veritas Volume Replicator replicates data in one of the following modes:

Synchronous
Ensures that an update has been acknowledged by the Secondary host, before completing the update
at the Primary. If there is a network failure, it ensures that the update fails at the Primary server.

Asynchronous
The application updates are immediately reflected at the Primary server and sent to the Secondary
server, later. The updates are stored on the Replicator Log until they are sent to the Secondary
server.

Synchronous Override
In this mode, the replication is synchronous, as long as the network is available. If the network is
unavailable, the replication is continued in the asynchronous mode. The pending updates are sent to
the Secondary server when the network becomes available.
This method is chosen by default for best support.

Setting Up RDS, RVG and RLINK


This section explains how to set up an Replication Data Set (RDS), which is the most important step to
get replication started. Data is replicated from a Primary node where the application is running to one or
more Secondary nodes.
An RDS consists of a Replication Volume Group (RVG) on the Primary node, and the corresponding
RVG on the Secondary nodes.
A Replication Link (RLINK) is associated with an RVG and it establishes the link between the Primary
and a Secondary RVG. The RLINKs associated with the Primary RVG control the replication settings.
To create the Replicated Data Set, Replicated Volume Groups and Replication Links:
Step 1

Click Start > All Programs > Symantec > Veritas Storage Foundation > Veritas Enterprise
Administrator to launch the Veritas Enterprise Administrator (VEA) console.

Step 2

Click View > Connection > Replication Network.

Step 3

Click Action > Setup Replicated Data Set to launch the Setup Replicated Data Set wizard.

Step 4

Enter a name for Replicated Data Set name.

Step 5

Enter a name for Replicated Volume Group name.

Step 6

Select a Primary host from the drop-down list box.

Live Migration, and Storage VMotion Using
VMware
This chapter explains setting up LMS for High Availability (HA), Live migration, and, Storage VMotion
using the VMware vSphere solution.
VMware High Availability (HA) is the solution used for HA, and VMware VMotion is used for live
migration (it includes Storage VMotion).

Cloning a Virtual Machine Using VMware

Overview of VMware High Availability


VMware High Availability (HA) is a simple and cost-effective solution which ensures high levels of
availability during a planned or unplanned downtime.
With VMware HA, you can:

Provide higher availability independent of hardware, operating system, and applications.

Eliminate planned downtime for common maintenance operations.

Provide automatic restart in cases of failure.

VMware HA uses multiple ESX or ESXi hosts configured as a cluster to provide rapid recovery from
outages and high availability for applications running in virtual machines. You must create a cluster,
populate it with hosts, and configure VMware HA settings before failover protection can be established.
After you finish the initial setup of the host, download and install the vSphere Client. The vSphere Client
is a Windows program that you can use to configure the host and to operate its virtual machines. It
enables you to connect to an ESX or ESXi host and to a vCenter Server system. Connect to the host and
add your virtual machine by importing a virtual appliance.

Chapter 5
Overview of VMware High Availability

Setting Up Cisco Prime LMS for High Availability, Live Migration, and Storage VMotion Using VMware

VMware HA protects application availability in two ways:

It protects against a server failure by automatically restarting the virtual machines on other hosts
within the cluster.

It protects against application failure by continuously monitoring a virtual machine and resetting it
in the event that a failure is detected.

This section explains:

Overview of VMware VMotion and Storage VMotion

Note

For more details on VMware HA settings, see the VMware vSphere 4.0 documentation.

Overview of VMware VMotion and Storage VMotion


Migration is the process of moving a virtual machine from one host or storage location to another.
VMware VMotion allows you to dynamically move workloads to different physical servers or to
different underlying storage without service interruption.
VMware Storage VMotion lets you relocate virtual machine disk files between shared storage locations
while maintaining continuous service availability and complete transaction integrity.
Migration with VMotion allows working processes in a virtual machine to continue throughout a
migration. The entire state of the virtual machine is moved to the new host, while the associated virtual
disk remains in the same location on storage that is shared between the two hosts. After the virtual
machine state is migrated to the alternate host, the virtual machine runs on the new host.
When you migrate a virtual machine with VMotion, the new host for the virtual machine must meet
compatibility requirements in order for the migration to proceed.
Migration with VMotion happens in three stages:
1.

When the migration with VMotion is requested, vCenter Server verifies that the existing virtual
machine is in a stable state with its current host.

2.

The virtual machine state information (memory, registers, and network connections) is copied
to the target host.

3.

The virtual machine resumes its activities on the new host.

If any error occurs during migration, the virtual machines revert to their original states and locations.
Migration of a suspended virtual machine and migration with VMotion can be referred to as hot
migration, because they allow migration of a virtual machine without powering it off.

Cloning a Virtual Machine Using VMware

Cloning a Virtual Machine Using VMware


A clone is a copy of an existing virtual machine. The existing virtual machine is called the parent of the
clone. When the cloning operation is complete, the clone is a separate virtual machine.

Changes made to a clone do not affect the parent virtual machine.

Changes made to the parent virtual machine do not appear in a clone.

A clone's MAC address and UUID are different from those of the parent virtual machine.

This section contains:

Advantages of Clones

Types of Clones

Types of Clones

Advantages of Clones
Installing a guest operating system and applications can be time consuming. With clones, you can make
many copies of a virtual machine from a single installation and configuration process. Clones are useful
when you must deploy many identical virtual machines to a group.

Types of Clones
There are two types of clones:

Full Clones
A full clone is an independent copy of a virtual machine that does not share virtual disks with the
parent virtual machine after the cloning operation. It does not access or maintain an ongoing
connection to the parent virtual machine and is separate from the parent virtual machine.
Full clones perform better than linked clones. However, full clones take longer to create than linked
clones.

Linked Clones
A linked clone is a copy of a virtual machine that shares virtual disks with the parent virtual machine
in an ongoing manner. This conserves disk space, and allows multiple virtual machines to use the
same software installation.
A linked clone is made from a snapshot of the parent. All files available on the parent at the moment
of the snapshot continue to remain available to the linked clone. Ongoing changes to the virtual disk
of the parent do not affect the linked clone, and changes to the disk of the linked clone do not affect
the parent. A linked clone must access the parent. Without access to the parent, a linked clone is
disabled.

Installation Procedure for Cisco Prime LMS 4.2 on Soft Appliance - OVA Image
Read the following notes before installing the software:

Note

Ensure that your system meets the recommended hardware and software specifications specified in
Server Requirements on Soft Appliance Systems.

Installing the Soft Appliance on a virtualized environment takes approximately 30 minutes for
deployment in local systems and 50 minutes for deployment in a network.

Soft Appliance OVA software can be installed only on VMware environment.

In VMWare, the resources should not be in shared mode.

Ensure that you comment the line var/log/boot.log under syslog.conf, as this may consume more
space in boot.log when the syslog size is huge.

You need not install any soft appliance image on the Virtual Machine (VM) before installing LMS 4.2,
as the LMS 4.2 OVA image has embedded RedHat Enterprise Soft Appliance.

Accessing LMS Server

You can change the default web server port numbers (for HTTP and HTTPS modes) using the changeport
utility. See Administration of Cisco Prime LAN Management Solution 4.2 for more information.
On a Windows system, if you are using HPOV as your third party NMS application, you would require
the IIS service to be enabled for HPOV to install and run. The IIS web server runs on SSL port 443,
which is the default port for the LMS web server when installing LMS. To avoid a conflict, you should
change the SSL port number of the LMS web server from 443 to another port that is available, and that
has a number in the range 1026 to 65535, except 6000.
Port number 6000 is reserved by Firefox, if you enter 6000 as the SSL port number, after installation (for
all the three operating systems), you will not be able to launch LMS using the Firefox browser. You must
ensure that you do not configure port 6000 during installation.

Migrating Data to Cisco Prime LAN Management


Solution 4.2
This chapter describes how to migrate data to LMS 4.2, and contains the following sections:

Overview of Migration to LMS 4.2

Scope of Data Migration

Migrating Data From LMS 3.2 SP1, LMS 4.0.1 or LMS 4.1

Guidelines to Post-Upgrade Activities

Overview of Migration to LMS 4.2


Migration is the process of carrying over data from an older version of LMS to a newer version of LMS.
Migration involves:
1.

Backing up the older version of LMS data.

2.

Installing the newer version of LMS.

3.

Restoring the backed up data.

You have to freshly install LMS 4.2 and then perform remote data migration from LMS 3.2 SP1, LMS
4.0.1 and LMS 4.1. LMS 4.2 does not support direct upgrade from previous versions other than LMS
4.0.1/4.1.
Data Migration to LMS 4.2 can be done using the following methods:

Note

Normal Backup - Process by which all the configuration files and collected data can be backed up
from application database.

Selective Backup - Process by which only required system configurations and data can be backed
up.

On Solaris machine, the backed up folder must be compressed and transferred. If not, the restore may
fail due to the changes in the file name and checksum, as the file name changes from the upper case to
the lowercase.

Scope of Data Migration

Note

While copying the backup data from remote Solaris servers, transfer the data in Binary mode. If any FTP
client software is used, ensure that the default transfer mode is set to Binary.
The data migration will not be successful if you transfer the backup data in ASCII or Auto mode
Notes for Remote Migration

When you back up the data from LMS 3.2 SP1and restore the data on LMS 4.2, a warning message
appears stating that there is a mismatch in the applications data. You can ignore this message and
continue the data restore.

Scope of Data Migration


This section lists the data that is migrated for Common Services, Network Topology, Layer 2 Services
and User Tracking, Inventory, Config and Image Management, Fault Management, IPSLA Performance
Management, CiscoView, Device Performance Management and Portal when you upgrade to LMS 4.2.

On all platforms, migration is supported across different NMSROOT directories, where NMSROOT
is the LMS installation directory. By default, it is:
/opt/CSCOpx for Solaris and Soft Appliance
C:\Program Files\CSCOpx for Windows, where C: is the System Drive

Cross platform data migration from Solaris to Soft Appliance is supported for the following LMS
versions:
LMS 3.2 SP1
LMS 4.0.1
LMS 4.1
LMS 4.2

Normal backup or selective backup can be chosen to restore the data from these versions to the LMS
Soft Appliance server. Ensure that all the prerequisites are addressed. Refer Prerequisites for more
details.

Selective Backup

When you run a selective data backup from CLI, all the data mentioned above gets backed up except:

Software Center map files

Once, Immediate, and Completed jobs data for all applications

UDM Device State Change After Migration Based on License Limit

UDM will get the count of managed devices from PIDM table of the backup data (only distinct device
IDs). Based on the LMS 4.2 license count, the respective number of devices will be moved to Managed
state and the remaining devices will be moved to Suspended state. So all the collections will be running
only for the Managed devices in UDM. But for the Suspended devices, the history of the data will be
maintained. If you want to run the collections for Suspended devices, you can either:

Upgrade the LMS 4.2 license

Move some of the unnecessary devices from the Managed state to Unmanaged state and move
necessary devices from the Suspended state to the Managed state.

After Migration UDM Policy is Set as Managed By All devices by Default

If you have configured UDM policy (Managed By Group) in freshly installed LMS 4.2 server and have
been managing some set of the devices, and if you migrate LMS data from the older version to LMS4.2,
the backed up data will be the backed up data will be restored in LMS 4.2 server and the UDM policy
will be set as Managed By All devices, after the migration. For details on the behavior of device states
see UDM Device State Change After Migration Based on License Limit.
ACS Backup / Restore Behavior in LMS 4.2

While restoring ACS backup from LMS 3.2 SP1, the Authentication mode will be changed to Local
Authentication Mode. No user or groups will be imported from ACS. The authentication and
authorization will be done locally.
Same Name User Defined Groups in Different Applications (backup data) Behavior After Restore in LMS 4.2

Case1: If you have "Group1" in CS, CM and RME (part of LMS versions earlier to LMS 4.0) while
backing up data from LMS 3.2 SP1 then after restoring the backed up data in LMS 4.2, "Group1" of
CS alone will be retained. "Group1" of CM and RME will be deleted.

Case2: If you have "Group1" in CM and RME (part of earlier LMS versions) while backing up data
from LMS 3.2 SP1 then after restoring the backed up data in LMS 4.2, "Group1" of both CM and
RME will be deleted.

Migrating Data From LMS 3.2 SP1, LMS 4.0.1 or LMS 4.1

Migrating Data From LMS 3.2 SP1, LMS 4.0.1 or LMS 4.1
This section explains how to migrate data from LMS 3.2 SP1, LMS 4.0.1 or LMS 4.1.
This section contains:

Migrating Data on Solaris

Migrating Data on Windows

Migrating Data on Soft Appliance

Migrating Data on Solaris


This section explains the procedure of Migrating Data on Solaris to a remote machine.
In this section, the machine that has LMS 3.2 SP1, LMS 4.0.1 or LMS 4.1 is referred to as Machine A
and the remote machine where you need to install LMS 4.2 and restore the data, is referred to as Machine
B.

Note

You cannot perform backup on network drives. We recommend you to stop the daemon manager, before
you take the backup of LMS data.
To migrate LMS 3.2 SP1, LMS 4.0.1 or LMS 4.1 data to a remote machine:

Step 1

Log in as root into Machine A.

Step 2

Back up LMS 3.2 SP1, LMS 4.0.1 or LMS 4.1 data.


To do normal backup using CLI, enter the following command:
NMSROOT/bin/perl NMSROOT/bin/backup.pl BKP
where BKP is the backup directory.
You must enter the absolute path for BKP. For example, if BKP is under /opt, give the path as
NMSROOT/bin/perl NMSROOT/bin/backup.pl /opt/BKP
To do selective backup using CLI, see Appendix E, Syntax and Usage for Backup Script.

Step 3

Log in as root into Machine B.

Step 4

Install LMS 4.2.

Step 5

Transfer the backup directory BKP that contains the LMS 3.2 SP1 data as a compressed file (example
.tar) from Machine A to any temporary location.

Step 6

Stop the daemon manager by entering:


/etc/init.d/dmgtd stop

Step 7

Restore the backed up data by entering:


NMSROOT/bin/perl NMSROOT/bin/restorebackup.pl -d BKP [-t temporary_directory]
where BKP is the backup directory.
You must enter the absolute path for BKP. For example, if BKP is under /opt, give the path as
NMSROOT/bin/perl NMSROOT/bin/restorebackup.pl -d /opt/BKP.
For more details, see Syntax and Usage for Restore Script.

This chapter contains:

Common Services Data Migration Errors

Inventory, Config and Image Management Data Migration Errors

Network Topology, Layer 2 Services and User Tracking Data Migration Errors

You must:

Make sure that the server configuration and OS versions are compatible with LMS 4.2. Also, make
sure the server has enough space to do the DB backup and restore.

Check migration logs. The logs migration.log and restorebackup.log are available under:
Solaris: /var/adm/CSCOpx/log
Windows: NMSROOT\log

Note that time taken to collect inventory is directly proportional to the number of devices and the
network response time

If you encounter problems during the data migration process, do the following to clean up the temporary
files and return to the initial state:
Step 1

Stop the LMS system by entering,

On Solaris
/etc/init.d/dmgtd stop

On Windows
net stop crmdmgtd

Step 2

Run the following commands:

On Solaris

Common Services Data Migration Errors


If you encounter errors during CS data migration, you can use the following options to troubleshoot the
problems:

CAM (Core Admin Module) debugging:


You can enable CAM debugging by entering:
NMSROOT/MDC/bin/ccraccess

-updateLog Core cam DEBUG

You can disable CAM debugging by entering:


NMSROOT/MDC/bin/ccraccess

-updateLog Core cam WARN

Daemon Manager restart is necessary.

CAM debug details:


CAM debug details are logged at:
NMSROOT/MDC/log/core-MM-DD-YYYY.log

Server information:
To collect server information, select Admin > System > Server Monitoring > Collect Server
Information from the menu.
This allows you to quickly collect all information about the state of the system. You can send this
information as a report, to TAC for troubleshooting.
This report provides information about System configuration, environment settings, application
configuration details, process status, and product log files.

SelfTest tool:
You can select Admin > System > Server Monitoring > Selftest from the menu to invoke the
SelfTest tool.
The SelfTest tool checks the integrity and health of the system for some of the Common Services
components.
This tool helps to debug issues of corrupted files and issues related to failure of some basic
components. It runs PERL scripts that provide outputs that indicate whether a specific test is
successful.

Troubleshooting Errors in Data Migration

Inventory, Config and Image Management Data Migration Errors


If you encounter errors during Inventory, Config and Image Management data migration, do the
following:

Make sure that the server configuration and OS version are compatible with LMS 4.2. Also, make
sure the server has enough space to back up the database and restore it.

Check migration logs. The logs (migration.log, restorebackup.log, rme_base.log) are available at
Solaris:

/var/adm/CSCOpx/log
Windows:

NMSROOT\log

If you get the OutOfMemoryError message, you can try to increase the available JVM (Java Virtual
Machine) heap size to work around the problem.
The JVM heap size can be configured in:
Solaris:

NMSROOT/MDC/tomcat/webapps/rme/WEB-INF/classes/com/cisco/nm/
rmeng/migration/migration.properties
Windows:

NMSROOT\MDC\tomcat\webapps\rme\WEB-INF\classes\com\cisco\nm\
rmeng\migration\migration.properties
The migration.properties file has the following parameters:
Parameter

Purpose

Default Value

VM_MIN_HEAP

Minimum JVM heap size

128

VM_MAX_HEAP

Maximum JVM heap size

512

RETRIES

Number of retries for starting the


daemon

15

You can increase the JVM heap size as much as possible (up to the available RAM). However, do
not exceed real system memory or your application will stop responding.
Sometimes, Inventory, Config and Image Management Migration may fail and display a message in
the logfile migration.log that DCRServer could not be started.
You can work around this problem by running the following command before performing migration:
Solaris:

NMSROOT/bin/perl NMSROOT/bin/dbRestoreOrig.pl

dsn=rmeng dmprefix=RME opt=Y

Windows:

NMSROOT\bin\perl NMSROOT\bin\dbRestoreOrig.pl

Note

dsn=rmeng dmprefix=RME opt=Y

For the above commands, stop the daemons before entering the commands. Start the daemons after
entering the commands.

Important Note for Configuring Port Numbers

On a Windows system, if you are using HPOV as your third party NMS application, you would require
the IIS service to be enabled for HPOV to install and run. The IIS web server runs on SSL port 443,
which is the default port for the LMS web server when installing LMS. To avoid a conflict, you should
change the SSL port number of the LMS web server from 443 to another port that is available, and that
has a number in the range 1026 to 65535, except 6000. Port number 6000 is reserved by Firefox, if you
enter 6000 as the SSL port number, after installation (for all the three operating systems), you will not
be able to launch LMS using the Firefox browser.

Installing UTU 2.0 in Silent Mode


To install UTU in silent mode, run the following command at the command prompt:
exe-location\CiscoWorksUserTrackingUtility2.0.exe

a s f1 file-location \setup.iss

where
exe-location is the directory where you have extracted the

CiscoWorksUserTrackingUtility2.0.exe file
file-location is the directory where you have the setup.iss file.

Do not use space after the -f1 option. Use the complete path for file-location.
For example, if the install directory for UTU is c:\utu, enter the following at the command prompt:
c:\utu\CiscoWorksUserTrackingUtility2.0.exe -a -s -f1c:\utu\setup.iss

Editing Setup.iss File

UTU is installed in the C:\Program Files\CSCOutu2.0 directory, by default.


If you want to install UTU in some other directory, you must edit the content of the setup.iss file. Change
the value of the szDir attribute in the setup.iss file.
For example, if you want to set the installation directory as D:\utu20, change
szDir=C:\Program Files\CSCOutu2.0 to szDir=D:\utu20 in the setup.iss file.
Setup.log File

The setup.log file is created during the installation in the same directory where you have extracted the
setup.iss file.
You should see the setup.log file to check the installation completion status.
The value of the ResultCode attribute in the setup.log informs you whether the installation has
completed successfully. The value 0 denotes that the UTU installation in silent mode is successful.
When the value of the ResultCode attribute is other than 0, you must install UTU again.

Installing the Remote Syslog Collector


This appendix provides general information on how to install the Remote Syslog Collector on a remote
Windows or UNIX system to process syslog messages.
The Remote Syslog Collector filters the Syslog messages before forwarding them to the Analyzer
process on the LMS server.

Warning

Do not install Remote Syslog Collector on a system that has LMS 4.2 already installed.

The Remote Syslog Collector and Syslog Analyzer Service on the LMS server uses SSL sockets to
communicate with each other.
It functions as follows:
1.

At startup, the Remote Syslog Collector looks for Syslog Analyzers already subscribed on the LMS
Server and requests for the latest filter definitions.

If the Syslog Analyzer is not reachable when queried, the Remote Syslog Collector logs all emblem
compliant syslogs in the specified downtime file after filtering.
The Syslog Collector Properties file is available at these locations:
On Solaris and Soft Appliance:

/opt/CSCOpx/MDC/tomcat/webapps/rme/WEB-INF/classes/com/cisco/nm/rmeng/csc/data/
Collector.properties
On Windows:

NMSROOT\MDC\tomcat\webapps\rme\WEB-INF\classes\com\cisco\nm\rmeng\csc\data\
Collector.properties

If the Syslog Analyzer responds with the latest filters, the Remote Syslog Collector applies filters
and forwards syslogs to the Syslog Analyzer.

2.

At startup, the Syslog Analyzer tries to connect to all the subscribed Remote Syslog Collectors by
passing the latest filters.

To subscribe or unsubscribe from a Remote Syslog Collector, select Admin > Collection Settings >
Syslog > Syslog Collector Status from the menu.
After the Remote Syslog Collector connects to the LMS 4.2 Server, the Remote Syslog Collector entry
is added to the Collector Status window of the LMS 4.2 Server.
To view the status of the subscribed Syslog Collector, select Admin > Collection Settings > Syslog >
Syslog Collector Status.

Syntax and Usage for Restore Script


You can use the restorebackup.pl script to restore the LMS data you have backed up.
For a successful restoration of backed up data, ensure that all services and processes are up and running.
Stop the daemons and then run restorebackup.pl.

Note

Cross platform restore is supported only from Solaris/Window to Soft Appliance.


The syntax for

restorebackup.pl

is as follows:

Solaris and Soft Appliance


NMSROOT/bin/perl NMSROOT/bin/restorebackup.pl
[-gen generationNumber]

-d

BKP [-t temporary_directory] [-h]

-d

BKP [-t temporary_directory] [-h]

NMSROOT\bin\perl NMSROOT\bin\restorebackup.pl
[-gen generationNumber]

The following table lists the explanation for the syntax:


Syntax

Explanation

NMSROOT(Required)

LMS installation directory (by default, /opt/CSCOpx in


Solaris and Soft Appliance, and C:\Program Files\CSCOpx
in Windows where C: is the System Drive)

-t

temporary_directory(Optional)

-gen generationNumber(Optional)

-d

BKP(Required)

-h (Optional)

This is the directory or folder used by the restore program to


store its temporary files. By default this directory is
NMSROOT/tempBackupData. You can customize this by
specifying your own temporary directory to avoid
overloading NMSROOT
This is the generation number. -gen now is the latest
generation. If generations 1 through 5 exist, then 5 is the
latest.
This is the absolute directory or folder used by the restore
program to store the backup.
