CiscoWorks RME problem/bug (urgent)

Has anyone ever tried uploading IOS images using TFTP via RME . My CW details are given below.

Image size (to be transferred) is 20.7 MB.

I have enclosed the CW error message.

Re: CiscoWorks RME problem/bug (urgent)

Hai,

I earlier experienced the same problem.The following procedure will applicable to you if have a firewall in between your NMS server and Network device.

Assumptions:

My ciscoworks server : 10.1.3.1

My target device : 10.15.254.1 (Loopback address)

Consider a PIX firewall or any firewall in between this. Even if you allowed tftp or even full IP for the source 10.1.3.1 to 10.15.254.1.

It will not work. I had the problem.

The solution is check the connected interface IP of the router say 10.1.6.1. Put an ACL permitting the source to the destination as 10.1.6.1 - Connected interface to the firewall.

Now if you perform the IOS upgrade it will definitely work. I solved the problem by this way.

Hope this information is useful to you. If it is useful dont forget rate it :)

Cheers

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

My problem is something like this , I am able to backup ios image from device to CW using TFTP this process goes smoothly.

However when I try to copy IOS image to the device from CW , the job aborts with the following error message.

---------------------------------------------------

Using sh conn I am able to find out that the IOS image transfer is happenning via tftp, but it for some reason this transfer is aborted.

I have uploaded the log of show conn using the ip-addresses you have given above in your example .

My ciscoworks server : 10.1.3.1

My target device : 10.15.254.1 (connected interface IP of the router )
