I am trying to deploy CiscoWorks SNMS in my company and been having some issues.
First I installed it on WinXP machine just to try the installation. I added one device and could see it in both WUG and Essentials map OK. After I instaled it on Win2003 server when I add the devices, I can see it but the picture of the device is all black. Has enyone have an idea why is that ?
Secondly I am having problems with syslog. It seems that syslog captures only messages from PIX and router devices but does not want from switches. I have tryed running kiwi syslog on the same machine without changeing configuration on devices and it picked up all messages including from switches. The switches are 3550 series.
Last but not least is problem with configuration management. This time it works fine with a switch using telnet but I can not get it to work with PIX devices using ssh. In the PIX log I noticed ssh login went fine and after that there is "packet CRC check failed" and CW loggs off.
Finally I think I ran all available updates (IDU-13, SNMS_update_1, ..) but CW still doesnt recognise some devices eq. Cisco blade switch WS-CBS3020.
If anyone can help me in any of this things I would appreciate it very much.
