Ciscoworks 2.2 to 3.0

Hi All

I have seen that we can migrate the data from LMS 2.2 to 3.0.

But can I do it frok Solaris to Windows?

We have LMS 2.2 running on Solaris and now want to install LMS3.0 on Windows, will this work?

In addition, we had LMS2.2 and HPOV NNM 6.31 running on separate machines running solaris. Now we want to install LMS 3.0 and HPOV NNM 7.51 on the same box and carry out the migration above. WIll this work?

Re: Ciscoworks 2.2 to 3.0

With an OS swap no direct migration is possible. You need to export your inventory from Solaris and import into the Windows version. The flat file formats have changed so you will need to modify the data (not difficult once you see it) before you import.

NNM and Ciscoworks on the same box ? I would believe that you would be resource constrained and would not have a good user experience.

7.5.1 integration isn't supported right now.

Re: Ciscoworks 2.2 to 3.0

Thanks

Please is there a link that can take me

through whats needs to be edited? In addition, as I need to convince my boss to give 2 servers, is there a link to support separate servers that I can use?

Also, as to the integration, when you say that 7.5.1 is not supported... does this mean 7.5 or 7.5.1 because the below shows that it support integration with 7.5. So is it only 7.5 and not 7.5.1? Thanks

Supported Network Management Systems

Table 1-5 lists the Network Management Systems (NMS) supported by Integration Utility 1.7, which is part of LMS 3.0.

Re: Ciscoworks 2.2 to 3.0

Its more just a transposition of data into the correct fields that the respective system is looking for.

The file format for 2.2 really hasn't changed from the days of CWSI, here's the header I dragged from an archive from 2004:

; Col# = 1: Name (including domain or simply an IP)

; Col# = 2: RO community string

; Col# = 3: RW community string

; Col# = 4: Serial Number

; Col# = 5: User Field 1

; Col# = 6: User Field 2

; Col# = 7: User Field 3

; Col# = 8: User Field 4

; Col# = 9; Name = Telnet password

; Col# = 10; Name = Enable password

; Col# = 11; Name = Enable secret

; Col# = 12; Name = Tacacs user

; Col# = 13; Name = Tacacs password

; Col# = 14; Name = Tacacs enable user

; Col# = 15; Name = Tacacs enable password

; Col# = 16; Name = Local user

; Col# = 17; Name = Local password

; Col# = 18; Name = Rcp user

; Col# = 19; Name = Rcp password

LMS 3.0 has some differences, more fields more credentials since it also supports SNMPv3.

management_ip_address

host_name

domain_name

device_identity

display_name

sysObjectID

dcr_device_type

mdf_type snmp_v2_ro_comm_string snmp_v2_rw_comm_string snmp_v3_user_id snmp_v3_password snmp_v3_engine_id snmp_v3_auth_algorithm rxboot_mode_username rxboot_mode_password primary_username primary_password primary_enable_password

http_username

http_password

http_mode

http_port

https_port

cert_common_name secondary_username secondary_password secondary_enable_password secondary_http_username secondary_http_password

As to the sizing of your servers:

Ciscoworks LMS 3.0 http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/products/sw/cscowork/ps2425/products_getting_started_guide_chapter09186a008084914b.html

HP Openview is a bit different as you havent said what you use it for, how many nodes you will support, what OS you'll install it on, etc. You can find out that info and get the respectivive docs here:

http://ovweb.external.hp.com/lpe/doc_serv/

In this case size does matter.

Re: Ciscoworks 2.2 to 3.0

Thanks akemp

I am not able to get to the above Cisco site, it keeps asking me for a password which I have but it will not accept it so maybe I do not have access.

Is it possible to give me another site without your cisco login?

We will be using the HPOV to monitor different site at geographical level and being able to drill down to the switches and routers.
