Ciscoworks Software Distribution

Answered Question
Mar 11th, 2009

I running LMS 3.1 and I am planning on using CiscoWorks to deploy IOS code to a pair of Cisco 4948's I have, the problem is the code that I want to deploy isn't available in CiscoWorks Software Distribution analysis. This is the code I want to deploy, but its not showing up.

cat4500-entservicesk9-mz.122-31.SGA9.bin

What do I need to do to get this working?

I have this problem too.

I think that could be the missing of the command

snmp-server system-shutdown

on your devices!

LMS reloads the devices by SNMP and not by CLI command reload.

Per default the SNMP system-shutdown is disabled.

If this is not the failure, you should post the job-log of a failed device.

Is it possible that the version 122-31.SGA9 is not available at all?

The Cisco software advisor tells the version 122-31.SGA8 to use for your device.

It is indeed available I download the code onto my desktop from cisco.com

Why its not showing up in CiscoWorks I do not know.

Is it possible to upload the code from my pc onto the CiscoWorks server and deploy it to several devices?

That is possible!

You can add a IOS out of the servers file system to the software repository.

And then you can deploy it to the devices.

Go to

RME -> Software Mgmt -> Software Repository

There you can find a button "Add" right on the bottom.

Then you will see a mask where you can choose the "Image Source".

Take "File System"!

At next you have to browse the "Input Directory", means the path where your IOS is saved on the server.

There it is important to double-click not only the folder where the IOS is safed, but also the file!

Unfortunately it is not possible to upload a file from your workstation.

Another alternative is to download the IOS from a device, if you installed it by hand in the past.

Then you have to select "Device" instead of "File System".

I got it figured out last night and was able to deploy IOS updates....the only things that I don't understand that it failed reloading the devices.
