When I try to configure a default ICMP jitter report in IPM like this:


Collector Type: Historical

Configuration Details:


Source Address : Catalyst6513-coreswitc ip

Target Address(es) : server.domain.local

Operation Name(s) : DefaultICMPJitter

Schedule Details:


Start Date : 13 Jun 2008

End Date : Forever

Poller Settings:


Polling Interval (mins) : 1

Polling Time : From 00:00:00 To 23:59:59

Days of Week Details : Sunday,Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday.

The status message "Config F

ailed" apperears, and the collector is unable to run.

In the IPMProcess.log the error:

[ Fri Jun 13 10:52:55 CEST 2008 ],ERROR,[STL-testjitter_server.domain.local_DefaultICMPJitter],com.cisco.nm.ipmng.dal.SnmpDeviceAccess,setInDevice,747,bad value at index 1 For Object Name rttMonCtrlAdminRttType

What does this mean? can someone please help?

By the way rtr responder is configured at the source device.

The rtr responder is required on the target device. The target device must be an IOS device running the rtr responder. Is this the case?

According to my Ciscoworks training book "Implementing Ciscvoworks LMS Volume 2" should the rtr responder be required on the source router (IOS) and the target device could be Any ip host or Cisco IOS router.

The rtr responder is running and configured on the source router IOS.

The book is wrong, then. The responder is enabled on targets.
