Does someone knows about this tool on LMS 3.2?

Answered Question
Mar 19th, 2010

I am quoting from the LMS 3.2 Deployment Guide:

What’s New: Generic Device Support in RME

Day one device support for network management applications is a continuing challenge. As new hardware platforms

come to market, device support may be lagging. The CiscoWorks Incremental Device Update team announces

availability of a new "automated" update tool, providing device support for inventory and configuration functionality

within Resource Manager Essentials. This tool allows customers to quickly get support for new hardware platforms

where complete device package support through the Incremental Device Update program has not yet been

delivered. This new tool can be downloaded from

http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/cw2000-rme and

installed on the LMS 3.01, 3.1, and 3.2 code base. The following features are enabled for devices using the

automated update tool:

Device Management in RME:

The Device Manageability Status Report provides details as to whether the device is officially supported or

managed using automatic IDU.

Inventory Management in RME:

System-, port-, memory-, Flash-, and bridge-related information will be queried using Entity or the OCCM

MIB.

Support for CDA will be provided.

Config Management in RME:

Sync archive using CLI and TFTP protocols

Ad-hoc template in NetConfig deployment

Partial NetShow if MDF association is available

Raw mode in version summary and version tree

Partial out-of-sync summary and compare configuration

Config Editor support for editing in raw mode only

An announcement regarding similar support capability in Campus Manager and Device Fault Manager will be sent

when it becomes available.

I have this problem too.

I have not heard of any dates.  It may not get introduced until LMS 4.0.

You can go to Common Services > Software Center > Device Update, click the the RME link, and search for GenericDev.  If you find it, then you have the package installed.  For any device which has a sysObjectID which RME doesn't recognize with a specific package, this package will be tried instead.

If you find that the package is not already installed, perform a device update for RME, and download and install all available device packages.

This isn't a tool.  It's just another RME device package.  The goal of this package is to provide generic inventory and config support to devices which may not be fully supported by RME yet.  For example, if you are trying to manage one of the new AP1140s in RME 4.3.1 (where no specific support exists), you will still be able to get Cisco inventory and perform config collection.

I searched the RME device packages and could not detect what package is this.

Is this package automactically loaded when we run Dvice Update for RME?

How I can assure that this package is installed and being used for any specific device model?
