Re: device package error for switch Cat2960

What's the name of the device package exactly?

Try the following that solved similar issues with previous customers that ran into this problem:

1) If you have the LMS 2.5.1 upgrade install then skip this step, else
Download LMS 2.5.1 update from Cisco website:

2) Start the install by clicking on it.

Please note that you *don't* need to install it again, what you need is the extraction of the files.
After starting it you will see that it started extracting the files. 3) After that, the popup window appears saying: Welcome to CiscoWorks setup program. This program will install CiscoWorks LMS 2.5 Dec 2005 Update on you computer... Please do *NOT* click on next, just leave the process here, it will be Cancelled at that point.

4) Leave that window open and search for 'cids_pkgs' It will be located somewhere under Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Temp\... eg: C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temp\pft9.tmp\cids_pkgs 5) This way you have those packages. Please copy them to a different location such as c:\cids_pkgs 6) Now Cancel the installation process. 7) Stop the daemon manager: net stop crmdmgtd 8) Replace all the packages cids by the ones we exctracted: PSUCli.bat -p rme -src -all -i -noServerRestart so in our example: PSUCli.bat -p rme -src c:\cids_pkgs -all -i -noServerRestart 9) Install the SharedSwimIOS: psucli -p rme -src c:\ SharedSwimIOS -i -noServerRestart
This should now install it properly. 10) Start the daemon manager: net start crmdmgtd
