1. You can configure devices to dump crashinfo files to the CiscoWorks server, but this would require some manual configuration on both the device and the server.

2. Pix OS software can be added to the repository from Cisco.com and the local file system. There is no version limitation. What errors were you seeing?

3. You would have to write a script that wraps the output of the pdshow command, then sends that in an email.

4. There is no way to generate a consolidated report that covers all applications in LMS.

you have resolved most of my issues ..

Please let me know what is the manual configuration to be done on the device and the server for the crashinfo..

You need to configure the device to dump crashinfo files to a known location. For example:

exception crashinfo file disk1:/crashinfo

Then you can script the cwcli command to create a crashinfo file in the tftpboot directory of the CiscoWorks server, then copy this file from the device to the server. You will first need to create a Netconfig template in RME with contents like the following:

copy disk1:/crashinfo tftp://

Assuming this template is called Crashinfo, you can perform the following after creating a crashinfo file in the server's tftpboot directory:

cwcli netconfig createjob -u admin -p admin -device -taskname Crashinfo -description "Crashinfo job"
