I’m having problems with netconfig on CiscoWorks LMS 3.1, RME 4.2.0.
I run a series of netconfig jobs with a User-defined Task which adds 75 lines of configuration statements to a number of 2960 Catalyst switches.
The job remains stuck in "Running" mode in the job browser window. It has remained in that state for over a day before I attempted to stop it, now it remains stuck in " Stop Initiated" mode.
We have accounting configured at a Cisco Secure ACS server, version 4.1. There, I can view that on every job run around 15 config lines are executed OK (simultaneously on all switches) by the LMS user. After those 15 lines, no more accounting lines are reported but the job stays in “Running” mode as described above. If I go under 15 lines of config the job executes just fine.
A new job connects on the next vty line on the switch (as noticed in the ACS), from which I assume that the previous connection remains open.
Netconfig is configured to execute commands through SSH using command authorization through Cisco ACS.
When I disabled command authorization (which could slow down the process) the result was identical.
From the netconfigclient log I can’t make any sense of what is going wrong, but I've included it nonetheless.
