LMS 2.5 on Windows 2003 Server.
Tried to update devices via Common Services > Software Centre > Device update. Selected RME and pointed to local psu_download\rme directory. The app picked up all the new device packages and I told it to install all (there were quite a lot).
After installation finished and I reconnected to LMS I was unable to view Topology Services as I kept getting an "Unable to connect to ANI server error". Tried restarting but that didn't help. In fact, couldn't even get CiscoWorks to open up! Tried the solution in topic:
which got me a little further.
Looking in the CS > Software Centre > Activity Log > Event Log there appear to have been a lot of errors installing the new packages. They all read like:
"ERROR: Error while installing (Rtr3800): Got exception during version comparision.com.cisco.nm.xms.psu.interfaces.adapter.AdapterException: C:psu_download
meRtr3800.zip cannot be installed because, CURMDFVER:1.11 is LESS THAN minReq MDFVer:1.16"
Restarted server again. Now connecting OK to LMS.
Biggest problem: Now there's nothing in my Topology Services > Network Views > VTP Views > [VTP_Domain] !! It's all blank, where there used to be over 90 devices.
