I'm having some issues adding stacks into the CS inventory.
I've looked at the documentation for it, but it is pretty vague. Basically I need some pointers on how to get these implemented correctly. I'll try to explain it as clear as I can.
For example I have one stack with 3 switches (called Switch-A (master), Switch-B and Switch-C in this example). Since these are 3750's (WS-C3750-24P
to be exact) with the Stackwise backplane cables, they only have one IP address for the entire stack.
I've tried creating the Device Type: Cisco Cluster Management Suite, naming it Switch-A Cluster, and giving it proper hostname (Switch-A in DNS), IP, and credentials.
Then I'd try creating Switch A as a Cluster Managed Switch. Display Name is Switch-A, I specify Switch-A Cluster as the cluster, and member number 1 (stack master). I leave everything else blank (can't enter the IP address as it'll come up with an error saying it's already being used (Switch-A Cluster)).
When I save, and check the inventory - it doesn't get collected. When I try looking at Device Center for 'Switch-A' (not Switch-A Cluster), it says "Failed as HostName and IP Address not configured in DCA" beside Device IP Address. This happens when I configure Switch-B and Switch-C as well (member numbers 2 and 3, respectively).
So that's my predicament. I checked the forums for any previous problems like this and found one, but I had misplaced the link - either way there was no resolution found for it.
Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction please? I hope it's not just that these switches aren't supported.
Thanks in advance.
LMS 2.6 is a free downloadable update from 2.5.1 (see http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/lms26). LMS 2.6 is really more like 2.5.2.
However, this bug is not fixed in LMS 2.6. But after you upgrade to 2.6, the TAC can provide my patch which will fix this problem.
