Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1 Inventory Job

My cisco prime infrastructure performs a switch inventory job every night at 22:00 hrs.  When I looked at the syslog of the devices in the inventory, I see some entries that I never saw with other LMS versions.

 

2014-06-30 22:00:01    Local7.Notice    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx    5410: Jun 30 22:00:00.623 CST: %SYS-5-CONFIG_I: Configured from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx by snmp
2014-06-30 22:00:01    Local7.Notice    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx    5411: Jun 30 22:00:01.567 CST: %SYS-5-CONFIG_I: Configured from console by vty1 (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)
2014-06-30 22:05:10    Local7.Notice    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx    5412: Jun 30 22:05:09.008 CST: %SYS-5-CONFIG_I: Configured from console by vty0 (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
)

I don't understand what the PI is doing with the switches.  Does anyone know what is happening during this inventory background job?  TIA

Hi , This must be happening

Hi ,

 

This must be happening because of  this option:

On PI GUI:

Go to  Admin > System Settings > Config Archive page, can you try disabling the option for "Archive Configuration after Inventory Sync"?

I think the check box is checked and which is why as soon as inventory ran , PI start to collect the configuration archive and in that case ,it logged into the device and which is why it is generating the SYS_config  syslogs.

check the other backgroud

check the other backgroud task , see if any thing is related to SSH\Telent  which need the PI to login to the device like configuration collection etc.. must be some background task

Hello all,we have the same

Hello all,

we have the same problem maybe; Cisco Prime IF 2.1 is changing the running-configs and produces out-of-syncs ;

it turns so for us is, as if Cisco Prime IF 2.1 a snmp-server host x.x.x.x community entry writes in the running-config,

so are running-and startup-config are out-of-sync; is this correct?  Herbert
