LMS4.0 with syslog

By default LMS has a built in Syslog function, all you need to do is update the devices to send their syslogs messages to the LMS ip address. Use the deployment guide to update your syslogs to point to LMS.

logging host x.x.x.x

Also ensure that KIWI syslog is not installed on the same server that LMS is running.

LMS4.0 with syslog

Hi Nael

thanks nael

couple of questions

1)after u configured ur devices to send trap to syslog LMS  4.0 how to find this trap on lms

2)my LMS 4.0 sits at the HQ, i have 5 big campuses

Campus A in area 1 has 100 cisco devices

Campus B in area 2 has 100 cisco devices

Campus C in area 3 has 100 cisco devices

Campus D in area 4 has 100 cisco devices

Campus E in area 5 has 100 cisco devices

how can i configure the LMS to categorize these area with each devices and perform devices discovery according each area not devices discovery for the whole Company?

3)can the LMS 4.0 sees the asa 5520?or this FW needs special config on the lms

4)how to config LMS 4.0 to acts as SNMP server , and after how to see the traps sent by cisco devices?

thanks

LMS4.0 with syslog

1. Use the Reporting features in LMS 4.0 to generate a 24 hour syslog report to view all the syslog info from the devices.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/docs/net_mgmt/ciscoworks_lan_management_solution/4.0/user/guide/Reports/fault_even_reports.html#wp1265904

2. First create user defined groups and five different discovery jobs based on the user defined group categories.

Step 1: Creating "User Defined Groups":

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/docs/net_mgmt/ciscoworks_lan_management_solution/4.0/user/guide/admin/groups.html#wp1185351

I would name each UDG based on their regions or you can do it like stated above "CampusA", "CampusB", "CampusC", "CampusD", and "CampusE". The idea to is come up with a consistent naming convention that applies to your environment and create a rule based on the subnet or device type.

Step 2: Create multiple discovery jobs for different Campuses with different settings based on subnet range:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/docs/net_mgmt/ciscoworks_lan_management_solution/4.0/user/guide/admin/dcr_adm.html#wp1103132

3.  5520 is supported with 7.2(1) or higher. See device matrix:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/docs/net_mgmt/ciscoworks_lan_management_solution/4.0/device_support/table/lms40sdt.html

4. LMS is your NMS server and will handle the SNMP traps through its Fault Management feature in the application.

Are you able to do snmpwalk from LMS to ASA? Try to open the device in Device Centre and try to do a snmpwalk, if unsuccessful, pleases share the ASA snmp configuration details.

The configration should be :

hostname(config)# snmp-server host interface_name ip_address [trap | poll] [community text] [version 1 | 2c] [udp-port port]

Where interface_name is the name of the NMS and ip_address is the IP address of the NMS.

Please see the document for more details :
