I want to configure the collector. IPM>COLLECTOR MGMT>COOLECTOR>CREATE>SOURCE DEVICES,TARGET DEVICES,OPERATION>NEXT, Then I GOT THAT ERROR.
How can I configure the collector in the right way.
You need to select a source router, target device, and operation from each of the three panes before clicking next. The fix for this bug simply pops up a dialog saying you missed some steps.
I'd say open a TAC service request, and get on a WebEx or Meeting Place session, and have them watch what you're doing to see if anything is missing. I have tried IPM 4.0.1 here, and it works if I select everything correctly. I select a source router, then select a device from my target list. Finally, I select an IP SLA operation. For my tests, I select DefaultIpEcho.
Thanks for your reply. Can you please guide me through and let me see where I went wrong. Under source devices, I have options like all devices,device type groups,user defined groups,etc, which should I check? Under target devices, I have options like all devices,device type groups,user defined groups,etc, which option should I check? For the operation you already told me which one I can choose.
You can choose any device from the All Devices list. You can choose any device under the Target > All Devices or Adhoc Devices lists. The devices you choose should represent the start and end points for the collector you're trying to create. That is, you want to monitor the latency between those two points in the network.
Source devices must be Cisco IOS devices that are present in DCR. They cannot be manually added to IPM. You can, however, manually add target devices (adhoc targets) under IPM > Collector Management > Devices > Add Adhoc Target. A target can be any IP node in the network.
I have devices on the DCR 266 devices but it`s not seeing it,it sees it as IPSLA not enable under IPM device categorization.
What should I do to ensure that all the devices appear as IPSLA enable?
The device needs to have SNMP properly configured, and needs to be running a feature set capable of IP SLA. What version of IOS is this device running?
The feature sets are fine for IP SLA support. At this point, I would need to see the running configuration from these devices, and I would need to see a screenshot of how they show up in IPM.
This is most likely your problem:
snmp-server view Subview system excluded
snmp-server view Subview cisco excluded
snmp-server view Subview system.1 included
snmp-server view Subview system.2 included
snmp-server view Subview system.4 included
snmp-server view Subview system.5 included
snmp-server view Subview system.6 included
snmp-server view Subview system.7 included
snmp-server view Subview sysUpTime.0 included
snmp-server view Subview ifEntry excluded
snmp-server view Subview ipAddrEntry excluded
snmp-server community uba123sub*)(/ view Subview RO
You have excluded the cisco branch. That branch must be included if you want to manage Cisco devices in LMS. Without it, just about every application will fail in some way. This assumes, of course, you're using this community string in DCR.
If I get you right, you`re saying the those commands that I used exclude should be include instead of that word exclude, that will solve the problem right?
You will need to include the cisco branch:
snmp-server view Subview cisco included
You will also need to include the ifEntry and ipAddrEntry. It might be better to simply create a new community string for LMS that is less restrictive.
Thanks for your reply.
Where do I need to include this?
Add it to the configs on my devices that I want LMS IPM to manage or where?
Please reply, thanks alot.
Go to Common Services > Device and Credentials > Device Management, and edit the credentials for the devices in question. Update the read-only and read-write community string fields with the correct values that are configured on the devices.
