CW LMS 2.5 software mgmt

I cannot import any image into the software repository from device or network.

In the job details i am getting the error message:

"SWIM1124: Failed to copy the image from Flash due to the reason - SWIM5004: Cannot initiate SNMP-set operation.

The SNMP Write Community String might be wrong.

Check whether the correct SNMP Write Community String is entered in Device and Credential Repository.. "

But the Write-Community is OK (checked with RME->Devices->Device Management:Check Device Credentials and View Credential Verification Report).

With other devices (SNMP is OK too) i'm getting other error messages (seems to be RoundRobin) "SWIM1004: Cannot get details about the Flash File system on the device.

There may be a faulty implementation of the MIB on the device." or "SWIM1124: Failed to copy the image from Flash due to the reason - copyInvalidServerAddress :invalid server address specified."

Importing Images from CCO or file works, but another problem is: i cannot distribute it to the device(s).

I'm working since 3 weeks on LMS 2.5 and more and more i'm getting unsatisfied. Happily i have not deinstalled my old LMS 2.2 (good instinct). With this version (installed in same subnet) i have not this troubles.

Have anyone else problems with the software mgmt part of lms 2.5 ?

Re: CW LMS 2.5 software mgmt

What device type is this happening on?

In RME -> Admin -> Software Mgmt -> View/Edit Preferences what do you have selected for transport protocols and which order?

Also, is the flash on the device parititioned or not?

Re: CW LMS 2.5 software mgmt


In the preferences i have selected TFTP as transport protocol (nothing else).

I tried different devices (each device type i.e: cat45xx, c2800, c2600, c2960, c29xxXL, c3524xl ...) the same procedure with the "old" LMS2.2 have no problems.

One of the differences between the machines is the solaris version (old: solaris8, new solaris9). I tried to copy the image (after this i tried the config) per CLI to the LMS2.5 server (without success) - Because of LMS2.5 is using its own tftp-service i tried the original tftp-daemon from solaris (changing inetd.conf) - without success again. Copying to the old LMS2.2 server is no problem.

Re: CW LMS 2.5 software mgmt


I am getting the same problem. This function was working fine under RME 4.0.3, but since upgrading to 4.0.4 it will not work.

I got the same message as you. So I then went away and checked out the write community string for all my devices in DCR. I basically re-entered the same, as I know it was all ok.

I now get a different error message and looking at the log for the job I get the following:

""ci_tb_c077_sw4#copy flash:c2950-i6q4l2-mz.121-22.EA4.bin tftp://Default Not Defined/rep_sw_6048058343612939280

copy flash:c2950-i6q4l2-mz.121-22.EA4.bin tftp://Default Not Defined/rep_sw_6048058343612939280


% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.


It looks to me like there is a problem with the script it is using, or the folder to which it is trying to store the image hasn't been created.

Certinaly looks like a little bug to me.

Hi Chris

I have tried different things (other tftp-daemon, debugging) and found the bug (or feature)

The workaround (cisco) is to set the hostname in the config. Seems to be a problem in the tftp - daemon (LMS2.5 comes with its own tftp-daemon - don't know why on a solaris platform). Using the original sun-tftp results in a permission denied. But using the Cisco tftp and setting the hostname on the device

solves this problem temporary in our environment.

Another small footstep to replace our LMS2.2 solution.
