I managed to discover a Cat6504, but it's shown as unknown device (ciscoProducts.657), what's wrong?
When i opened the cisco view, I managed to get the view as a Cat6504.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The Cat6504-E switch requires Campus Manager 4.0.7 or higher for support. The current version is 4.0.9 which you can find either through Cisco.com or through Common Services > Software Center > Software Update.
Since my LMS version is 2.6, with CM 4.0.6, can I perform an upgrade to 4.0.9 directly or I've to upgrade to 4.0.7, then 4.0.8 and finally 4.0.9.
Do I have to upgrade RME at the same time?
You can upgrade Campus Manager alone (as there is currently no service pack for RME 4.0.5). You can also go directly to CM 4.0.9 since you already have 4.0.6. You do not need to do any intermediate upgrades.
Note: while there is no RME service pack yet, there are quite a few new device packages for RME. Once you have Campus Manager supporting this switch, you might also want RME to support it as well. Be sure to go to Common Services > Software Center > Device Update to download device package updates for RME and CiscoView to keep those applications up-to-date with the latest device support.
I've tried upgrading the device package in RME, but it failed.
Do i have to upgrade the CM first, then only RME device package ?
No, the two apps are independent. You might not have the latest Common Services MDF, though. when selecting RME for a device package update, also select Common Services, and be sure to download the latest MDF package (1.21 currently).
Yes. If all you choose to upgrade is MDF in one round of device update, that should go one without any problems. It has no dependencies.
but when i read the "readme" file, it says specific mdf file added new device updates, if i upgrade directly to latest version, will it recognize all the new device in the intermediate update?
