Is it possible to manage/archive Pix Firewall configurations in CiscoWorks LMS? I have added our Pix Firewall in LMS however the config fetch fails in RME with the following error:
CM0056 Config fetch failed for Pix515 Cause: CM0204 Could not create DeviceContext for 63 Cause: CM0202 Could not access 172.16.x.x via SNMP. Action: Check the Read Community string Action: Check if required device packages are available in RME. Action: Check if protocol is supported by device and required device package is installed.
Is it even possible to archive pix configurations in LMS RME? Any thoughts?
Yes, it is possible. RME supports TELNET and SSH transports for archiving configurations from PIX, ASA, and FWSM devices. This problem could point to a package issue, missing TELNET or SSH from your config fetch protocol list, or bad credentials in DCR for this PIX.
Thanks for the ideas. I just checked my credentials and they are set fine. But if I run a check credentials job all results are Device Not Reachable. Also I am seeing Device Type Unknown in Device Center. I'm going to check my package and see if I need to update those for pix support.
You're probably on Windows, and your package repository is probably damaged. The directories NMSROOT/MDC/tomcat/webapps/rme/WEB-INF/lib/pkgs and NMSROOT/www/classpath/com/cisco/nm/xms/psu/pkgs/rme must be identical in terms of .zip files.
Thanks for the assistance, you pointed me in the right direction. The problem turned out to be an incorrect snmp string. The strange thing is until I got that string right my telnet credential verification failed too, now they are are working fine and my configuration in now synchronized and it shows PIX515E for my device type.
