Software distribution fails with SWIM1114

Unanswered Question

Windows/LMS 2.51 RME 4.03

Is there any way to lengthen the time between the post software distribution reboot and when RME verifies the device came back up?

I have a 3725 that takes several minutes to reboot. The IOS upgrade job runs fine but fails with a SWIM1114 error because the router does not come back up in time.

Since it fails, I don't get the triggered inventory collection, or move on to the next device/warm fuzzy of a success...

or am I just missing something?

any help appreciated

No, this value is hardcoded to be 10 minutes. It would be a good idea to make this configurable, but such a fix would not be doable in LMS 2.5.1.

In LMS 3.0 there is a hackish workaround you can use to preempt the 10 minute timer. If you increase the RME SNMP timeout for this device, you can wait as long as it takes. For example, if the switch takes 20 minutes to reload, set your SNMP timeout to 1200 seconds.

The downside of this approach is that it will take at least 20 minutes before RME will detect an SNMP problem with this device for ALL RME applications.

This workaround does not work in LMS 2.5.1 as the timeout has a limit of 90 seconds. However, by also increasing the retries, you can accomplish the same thing. For a 20 minute wait, set the timeout to 90 seconds with 3 retries (actually, this 22.5 minutes).
