Cisco View Device Manager

Unanswered Question
Oct 26th, 2007

Hi,

is there anybody who can tell me how to bring the Cisco View Device manager for 6500er up? I've installed the CVDM V.1.1 in the bootflash of my 6500er, IOS version is 12.2(18)SXF4 enterprise services. Installed java on the client is v.1.4.2_06. After launching the CVDM whithout proxy settings the windows starts gathering information, after a few seconds it stops with an error "java.lang.NullPointerException". This failure appeared with Mozilla 2.0.0.8 and IE 6.0, on the 6500er all vty lines are idle. Is anybody here who can help to solve the problem?

The CVDM is not supported on the Supervisor 32 engine.


With Supervisor 720, the workaround is to downgrade the Cisco IOS? Software Release to 12.2(18)SX
