We have LMS 3.2 installed. I am trying to use RME Software Distribution feature to upgrade switches’ IOS.  When I went to RME->Software Mgmt->Software Distribution->Distribute by Devices,  select one device, then software was doing verification, fail returned. The reason was:

“SWIM5001: Cannot connect to the device using TELNET.”

Telnet has been disabled in all of our switches, we only allow SSHv2. Where can I config the CiscoWorks to not use telnet, and use SSH. I think it should be in Common Service, but just cannot find it.

Any help would be great.

The SWIM transport settings are under RME - Admin - Software Mgmt - View/Edit Preferences, i.e. http://hostname:1741/rme/
