IPM Importcollector CLI

Unanswered Question
May 21st, 2009


We are trying to import an existing ip sla collector to IPM 4.1, but when we put the command by CLI, we recieved an error message:

root@cwlms # /opt/CSCOpx/bin/ipm importcollector -u admin -p xxxxx -source X.X.X.X -oper all

* Warning * The -p option is highly insecure and *not* recommended.

* Warning * See -u option for more details.

<ipm> ERROR - X.X.X.X is not a valid source device

<ipm> ERROR - Command Execution Failed.

Recommended action:

1. Check whether the given input are valid

2. Check the ipmcli.log for details



Failed: ipm importcollector: Import of Collectors failed.

we watched the ipmcli log, but we didn't understand what it means.

The source device must already be in your DCR, and managed by IPM as a source device. Is this the case?

Hi, resurrecting an old post but I'm getting exactly the same error. The device I'm trying to import is listed under IPM devices in the 'Responder Enabled Devices', I've also tried adding it as an Adhoc target as it is both a collector and responder.

Here is the log for the session I ran:

Can anybody tell me where I'm going wrong please?

Thanks in advance.
