How do I delete/disable System Collection/Polling Schedule jobs?

Correct Answer by Joe Clarke about 8 years 1 month ago

Replace NMSROOT with the path into which CiscoWorks was installed. Run this command from a DOS shell as a local Administrator.

Inventory...seems there wasn't one there. I added one and it told me ICSU0039: Successfully updated System Job Settings notification. I read a little further (!) and decided the size of my network would be better off collecting and polling inventory in smaller increments but couldn't find a way to back the job out or delete it.

Inventory collection and polling are always run. They cannot be disabled. You can configure collection to run in the distant future, however. Typically, we recommend inventory polling runs daily, and collection runs weekly. The overhead is typically minimal as this is just SNMP polling of containment information.

I cannot find evidence that they have ever run! Under Job Management>RME Jobs...no collection results. When I "updated" the default, there wasn't any information in the schedule fields, I added the day and time and my email(it didn't take what I submitted either...made 00:45:00 to 00:17:03)

No, I don't know what this is...

BTW I am in a LMS class right now and you are famous! So happy to meet you!

This could be a jrm problem, then. What version of LMS is this? Please post the output of the pdshow command as well as the ICServerUI.log.

Global Knowledge: Implementing CiscoWorks LMS! Awesome class! Mike Fiedler is a rockstar of educators, passionate and knowledgeable, nothing close to Joe but highly recommended =-)

Sorry it took so long, communication to server is slow over VZ connection through VPN...

I must not have scrolled down far enough. However, the attachment appears to have gotten lost in the forum. Can you repost it?

Here it is again...

Do you think this may have anything to do with why my Netconfig jobs "Failed" in this manner:

Deploy succeeded, Synchronization of RME archive with Device Config failed

The line numbers in your stacktraces do not line up with the RME 4.1.1 code. Since the jobs are not showing up, it may require you to re-register the system RME jobs. IF you're run Windows, run:

NMSROOT\bin\perl -I NMSROOT\objects\perl5\lib NMSROOT\dbupdate\dbupdate.pl NMSROOT\rigel\scripts\rme\createJobs.txt

If on Solaris, run:

/opt/CSCOpx/bin/perl /opt/CSCOpx/dbupdate/dbupdate.pl /opt/CSCOpx/rigel/scripts/rme/createJobs.txt

Then restart Daemon Manager, and see if your inventory jobs show up.

Sorry Joe, I don't understand how to run this script on this server.

NMSROOT\bin\perl -I NMSROOT\objects\perl5\lib NMSROOT\dbupdate\dbupdate.pl NMSROOT\rigel\scripts\rme\createJobs.txt

kathegaj2 Thu, 01/08/2009 - 13:37

yeaaaa I tried that and it won't recognize the file or directory...

Joe Clarke Thu, 01/08/2009 - 14:07

Please post a screenshot of what you're executing, and the error you receive.

D:\Program Files\CSCOpx\bin>perl -I\PROGRA~1\CSCOpx\objects\perl5\lib\PROGRA~1\C


This gyration worked but nothing happened.

(don't know if terminal monitoring is on so...)

I restarted daemon manager just in case... I think this did the trick. Will let you know...
