You need to run a successful Campus Manager Data Collection before UT acquisition can run. Data Collection will generate the required XML files which tell UT from what switches, ports, and VLANs it needs to acquire data.

Hi,


I am the same message. We have made a campus Manager Data collection before but we still have the same issue.

We have reinitialize ani data with command:

- net stop crmdmgtd

- CSCOpx\bin\perl CSCOpx\bin\dbRestoreOrig.pl dsn=ani dmprefix=ANI

- net start crmdmgtd

- wait for 15 minutes

- launch collection data and ut acquisition


=> no change !

Please post the list of contents under NMSROOT\campus\etc\cwsi as well as the ani.log.

Looks like something was interfering with the XML write last time. Delete the xmlwrite.lock file, then run a new Data Collection. The portsData.xml, vlanData.xml, and RouterData.xml files should update with today's date. Once that happens, you should be able to run a new UT acquisition.

Hi Joe,


Customer told me that even if he delete the xmlwrite.lock file and run a new Data Collection, the portsData.xml, vlanData.xml, and RouterData.xml files are not update with today's date.

You'll need to debug the Data Collection phase, then. You'll need to enable core, corex, frontend, and framework Data Collection debugging, remove any lock file, then run a new Data Collection. When that finishes, post the ani.log.

Now, Customer told me that Data collection works. I don't know why.


Many thanks for your help,

I'm running into a similar situation:


We upgraded from LMS3.1 to 3.2 and noticed that CM looked like it was completely empty. ANI reinitialize during upgrade?


After noticing this, we ran a Device Collection which appeared to have run properly, then a UT Acquisition. However only 1400 or so entries showed up when it should be in the 10-15k. Tried to kick off another DC, it say's it ran, but stay's idle in CM home page. Now UT gives the XML lock error. Can't get DC to run w/o bouncing daemon manager. Have enabled the debug logs, but see VERY little - 82 lines of data... Guess i need to bounce services again w/ debug enabled to see if DC will run properly.


TAC Case time?
