Hi.
  We have CSS 11501 with a software version 08.10.1.06, S11K-500ST-8.1: licence - WebNS 8.1X Standard Feature Set for CSS 11500 Platforms
  Made all configs for management access and working conf like cisco manuals says, but can't get http(s) access.
  1. config management port with IP address ...
  2. add user with all privileges
  3. route throught management port
  4. no restrict web-mgmt , ssh

  If i'm truing https to CSS, I get page:
   ***************************************************
  Welcome to the Cisco 11500 Content Service Switch (CSS)
    Currently Cisco View Device Manager (CVDM) for the CSS is not installed!
     For information regarding the CVDM for CSS, please visit CCO at http://www.cisco.com/go/cvdm.
     Use this link to download the latest CVDM for the CSS.
     http://www.cisco.com/kobayashi/sw-center/netmgmt/ciscoview/cvdm-planner.shtml
     The CVDM for CSS release notes provide detailed installation instructions.
     http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/cscowork/ps4565/prod_release_notes_list.html
    **************************************************
   I tried making upgrade software to version 08.20.4.02 (install gui, upgrade), but result the same. CiscoView 6.1.4 in Cisco Works LMS 2.5
  show only front panel and minimal of configuration options (circuit, virtual router ..) 
   Please, can you explain is this restriction of license to CSS or i should install some addition software to get http access to CSS WebNS
with functionality like in CLI. 
   Thank you.

Hello,


WebNS version 7.50 was the last release of WebNS that supported the built-in Web GUI.  After that it was done using CVDM (CiscoView Device Manager).  However, the CVDM has also gone End-of-Support almost two years ago (July 2008).


ANM 3.1 (Application Networking Manager) does support some management of the CSS, but not configuration.  If you are looking for a very nice GUI to configure your load balancer, you many want to consider what will ultimately be the CSS's successor, the ACE (Application Control Engine) 4710.  It has a full-blown Web browser-based GUI and also full support in ANM.  It is a much more powerful and feature-rich load balancer.


Hope this helps,

Sean
