We have recently acquired Solaris Server for a Fresh Install of LMS 2.5.
However going thru the history of LMS
1) We have decided to go for LMS 2.6.
What path can I take to get this accomplished?
2) What are the HD requirements for LMS 2.6.?
3) Do I have to install LMS 2.5.1 first?
4) Thru our Service contract we are eligible for the following upgrades?
Are these sufficient to complete the install.
CWLMS-2.6-URSRL-K9 & CWLMS-DEC05URSR-K9
20 GB or more free space for LMS applications and data
LMS 2.6 is a maintenance patch on top of LMS 2.5.1. You must install LMS 2.5.1 first, then 2.6 can be downloaded and installed right over it. The hardware requirements have not changed. If you have a supported 2.5.1 server, it will also be supported for 2.6.
The LMS 2.6 mega-patch can be downloaded from http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/lms26 . To check if you're eligible for CDs, go to http://www.cisco.com/upgrade/ and enter your contract number. From there, you can ship the CDs to yourself if you are entitled.
I don't think so. I'm wrestling with this issue right now. I tried a fresh install of CWLMS-DEC05URSR-K9 and the installation just keeps failing. Log files indicate no previous installations found.
TAC has been unhelpful so far. The case has been open a week now.
have a look here
Since LMS 2.5 was not longer sold you got the 2.5.1 with the ordernumber CWLMS-2.5-UR-K9
All other mentioned here are upgrade Versions and not suiteable for clean installations!
So you need this:
The CWLMS-2.6-URSRL-K9 is intened for this: Service Release Only; LMS 2.1, 2.2 to LMS 2.6 UR
Have a look to this table here:
I hope these links clarify something.
Now i hope a have no copy and paste failure within this mail
The problem here was a bad TEMP directory. For installation purposes, TEMP and TMP should be set to a resolvable DOS 8.3 location (e.g. C:\TEMP). Therefore, all relevant file systems must allow DOS 8.3 support. CiscoWorks will not work without it.
Yup, a by product of being in a government environment where servers need to be hardened. Appreciate your help on this one.
So back to the original question. Yes the 2.5.1 media will allow you to install clean and not just as an upgrade. Even if it says Service Release only. And I got my 2.6 media today from www.cisco.com/upgrade. It comes with 2.5.1 CDs and a 2.6 update CD. So that should work as well.
Yes, the 2.5.1 CDs that come with the LMS 2.6 kit will allow a clean install. The LMS 2.6 CD should be applied once all of the desired LMS 2.5.1 apps are installed.
While installing the LMS 2.5.1, today I got the following Error messages:
See the attachement.
So I decided to uninstall it & start fresh & came across this:
rm: Unable to remove directory /var/sadm/pkg/CSCOjre14: File exists
Packages CSCOjrm CSCOvorb CSCOjawt CSCOcam CSCOsjre CSCOswng2 CSCOjgl CSCOxsl CSCOhlp CSCOmd CSCOjre14 could not be deleted ......
If you continue the rest of the processing, you will not be able to
uninstall again on remaining packages,
Enter [Y|y] to Abandon rest of the processing here
Abandon? (y/n) [y]:y
Abandoning rest of uninstall procedures....
Uninstall again later to remove unremoved packages and
to remove other miscellanous temporary, conf, infomration files
I can't uninstall further (after reboot) using:
However I see the folder CSCOpx, shall go-ahead & re-install ?
Is there any other way I could delete/uninstall further & proceed?
It looks like there are still some entries left after the uninstall, so its not totally clean. You can try running the script clean_system.sh to see if it cleans everything up:
