Hi, First of all make sure



First of all make sure you have the required resources to installed LMS 4.2 :


LMS 4.2 is a Bundle where by default you will have all the application installed like common service , RME , DFM etc.. what features you want to use ,it is up to you.

If you are familiar with the previous version of LMS i.e LMS 3.2   , you will found all the same feature here with some more added in the list.

After you installed LMS 4.2 , on the top hand right side , you will see and ICON called " legacy" that will give you the navigation path as it was in LMS 3.2.


you can check the user guide for more feature understanding:

If you have any query on a specfic feature ,feel free to ask :)

Hi Afroz,

Thanks for the information. It is very useful for us.

As we only used LMS 1.2 before and it is setup before i join the firm.

I am in-charge to setup the new LMS 4.2 with the following requirement.

1. Alerting when switch have problem

2. Collect all startup config

3. Able to schedule firmware update

4. Able to have a dash board to see switch status

I know all the requirement above is stated in Cisco guide. but it will be nice if there is a blog that go thru all the setup steps by steps.
