I just tested this file on my LMS 3.2 server once more and I had no problems importing.

What error did you get?  Did you unzip and change the extension of the file?  Unzip this file, do NOT change the extension and try to import.  It should work.  If it does not, I suggest you open a TAC case so someone can troubleshoot this directly on your server.

Hi Rajiv,

I tested file too and I have imported 16 devices from import file.

As joel said, you have only unzip file, that's all, you don't have to save in specific place because with browse button from file information you can choose it.

Hi friends,

I tried it already without extension, but nothing works i still get the same error that i provided in the first post.I also tried to import by placing the file in the cscopx folder. Can someone tell me, whether there is some limitation to bulk import in the demo version as such?

Best Regards,

There should be no such limitation in evaluation version.  You could try using dcrcli to import as well ie.

dcrcli> impFile fn=E:\import ft=csv cr=dcr

To access dcrcli you need to enter in DOS:

dcrcli -u 

Details of the job can be seen under CSCOpx\log\dcrimpexp.log.  Debugging for this log can be set under Common Services > Server > Admin > CS Log Configurations > Device and Credentials Repository.
