Hi Experts,

I have running cisco prime lms 4.2 running well on a win 2008 R2 server. After a restart of the machine, the successfull login in LMS results in a redirection loop. Restore a older image to the server doesn't help. All services seem running fine. Any help?

Ping but no SNMP - Alarms in Cisco Prime Infrastructure 3.0 | Network Management | Cisco Support Community

Good day all.  From Cisco Prime Infrastructure 3.0. I receive this Alarm, "Condition:Device SNMP unreachable, ICMP pingable" and in less than ten minutes another report shows that it is reachable.  What could be the cause for the server to be able to ping but snmp unreachable?

Hi guys

How can I monitor a Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance with several contexts (admin, default and services) in Prime Network 4.3.1. Do i need to add every context or just the admin context?
