NNM 7.5.1 and Ciscoworks 2.6 Integration

Answered Question
Apr 1st, 2007

Everything went well except for one thing, when I try and launch ciscoview for a given node from the map, iexplore opens with a 403 forbidden message for the following URL:

http://ciscoworks-pr01:1741/CSCOnm/servlet/com.cisco.nm.cvw.servlet.CvServlet?device=dotplac41

When I go into my ciscoworks server separately, and launch ciscoview separately this is the url for viewing the device:

https://ciscoworks-pr01/CVng/chassis.do?deviceip=dotplac41

Now, if i take that url and put it into IE from my NNM server directly, it acts as it should...seems to me that the NNM GUI customization created by the latest integration package does not work with LMS 2.6...it tries to launch the following:

Action "CWCiscoView" {

SelectionRule isNode && isCisco;

Command "C:\\PROGRA~1\\INTERN~1\\iexplore.exe http://ciscoworks-pr01:1741/JSP/cmf/security/AutoLogin.jsp?URL=http://ciscoworks-pr01:1741/CSCOnm/servlet/com.cisco.nm.cvw.servlet.CvServlet?device=$OVwSelection1";

}

The url in there is attempting to run a jsp script called autologin(which apparently does not work)...is this a feature that is broken on my LMS installation, or am I right in saying the integration package is out of date?

I am thinking about just changing the GUI customization so that it goes to the URL i found manually. Any other ideas?

I have this problem too.

The problem is not the URI, but the protocol. Your server is configured for HTTPS, not HTTP. When you ran nmic, you must have chose http for your protocol. Run nmic again to change the integration options, and specify https instead, or just modify the files directly in NNM (i.e. change http:// to https:// and remove the :1741 port from the URLs).
