Re: SSH client not found

Make sure the C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\campusmgr.properties file exists. Often times, there is a hidden ".txt" extension on files, so make sure the file is not named campusmgr.properties.txt. Post this file from the server.

Re: SSH client not found

I checked the 5.0 User Guide (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/net_mgmt/ciscoworks_campus_manager/5.0/user/guide/cmugfull.pdf) and it has your syntax WITH THE EXCEPTION of a "-" preceding the "DCMSSH" statement. Have you included that?

"Step 1 Go to the Microsoft Windows desktop and select Start > Settings > Control Panel > Java Plug-in from the Microsoft Windows desktop.

The Java Plug-in Control Panel appears.

Step 2 Click Advanced.

Step 3 Enter the path to an SSH client executable in the Java Runtime Parameters field.

For example, if the ssh executable is located at E:\PROGRA~1\SSHCOM~1\SSHSEC~1\ssh2.exe,

add the following in the Java Runtime Parameter field:-DCMSSH=E:\PROGRA~1\SSHCOM~1\SSHSEC~1\ssh2.exe

(Directory and file names must follow the 8.3 naming format.)

Step 4 Click Apply."

It appears the syntax changed in 5.1 See the Campus Manager 5.1 User Guide. It states:

"Step 1 Create a file named campusmgr.properties.

Step 2 Write the following property in the file:

CMSSH=SSH executable file name

For example,

If you are using Secure Shell:

CMSSH=C:\\Progra~1\\SSHCOM~1\\SSHSEC~1\\ssh2.exe

If you are using Putty:

CMSSH=C:\\PROGRA~1\\putty\\putty.exe

Step 3 Save the file in your home directory.

For example, your home directory can be D:\Documents and Settings\admin."

Note the double backslashes.

Re: SSH client not found

my campus manager is 5.0.1 should i try with 5.1 ssh solution? but it is prompting to specify the client in java runtime parameters in control panel.

Any comments please.

Re: SSH client not found

Have you tried running the command line specification from a Windows "Run" prompt? (Winkey > R > C:\PROGRA~1\ZOC6\zoc.exe). If that works, the problem is in CM parsing the variable. If it doesn't, your command line entry is incorrect.

Just a thought....

Re: SSH client not found

Hi,

I m not able to execute the

(Winkey > R > C:\PROGRA~1\ZOC6\zoc.exe)

what i understand from this command is start>run>Winkey > R > C:\PROGRA~1\ZOC6\zoc.exe and then press enter it doesnt work,

Can u put some step by step to easy to understand.

Sorry to reply late

Re: SSH client not found

Hi friends,

pls have a look on the attachment i had given a path according to 8.3 naming convention,

when i try to do from run C:\PROGRA~1\ZOC6\zoc.exe by 8.3 naming format it open the zoc6 ssh terminal window that means my naming convention r proper than what could b the possible reason that campus manager is not able to find the path in Java control panel.

Pls refer the attachment i have took the print screen for the error.

Re: SSH client not found

I do see a SSH bug (CSCsr89218: SSH is not launching from TOPO. SSH flow code has been removed in this release due to jacorb changes.) noted as being fixed in CM 5.1.1. The bug toolkit notes that it was initially reported in 5.1 though, not 5.0.x.

Perhpas Joe Clarke can weigh in regarding the status of this problem in 5.0.x releases. I don't have a system I can test it on.

Re: SSH client not found

If you have a Software Application Support (SAS) or SASU (SAS plus Upgrades) contract covering your CiscoWorks product, you are eligible to download minor (SAS) or major (SASU) product upgrades.

Check with your account team or the TAC if you are not sure of your eligibility.

Re: SSH client not found

Hi,

I don't have SAS OR SAUS

If i upgrade to CM 5.0.4 it will help me.

Re: SSH client not found

You got lucky. I typically don't read threads if someone else has already replied. There's just so much else to do (and I miss some threads as it is).

Campus Manager 5.0.5 has all of the fixes for SSH support in Campus. So you will need to be on LMS 3.0.1 (downloaded from http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/lms301 ), then upgrade to 5.0.5 from Common Services > Software Center > Software Update.

Then, you need to make sure that a campusmgr.properties file exists on your client in your home directory (e.g. C:\Documents and Settings\lambay2000) with contents like the following (assuming this is the path to your SSH client):

CMSSH=C:\\PROGRA~1\\ZOC6\\zoc.exe

Then SSH should work from the Topology Map.

Re: SSH client not found

Hi Joe,

i have done according to ur guidance but still the same error,"ssh client configuration missing"

I have created a txt file named campusmgr.properties and specified the ssh client path CMSSH=C:\\PROGRA~1\\PUTTY\\putty.exe i.e (already exist in program files) and saved in administrator profile c:\Documents and Settings\administrator as am logging in windows 2003 server with administrator account for using LMS.

As u look in the error attached it is searching a SSH client in control Panel\JAVA\java runtime parameters.

Also specfied CMSSH=C:\\PROGRA~1\\PUTTY\\putty.exe path in java\java runtime parameters in control panel.

Awaiting for ur reply.

Re: SSH client not found

Did you upgrade to CM 5.0.5? This error points to a problem with Campus not being able to find the campusmgr.properties file. Post the output of the SET command from a DOS prompt on your client machine as well as the Java console after reproducing this error.

New Member

Re: SSH client not found

Hi,

Yes i upgrade to 5.0.5

I did'nt understood by the below words:

You want the SET command output from command prompt of the LMS server?

How to get output from java console?

Am not clear pls can u mail me in steps.

I want to get rid of this issue help me clarke.

Thanks,

Cisco Employee

Re: SSH client not found

I want the SET output from the DOS prompt on the client machine.

If you launch the Java control-panel, go to Advanced, and choose "Show console" under the Java Console option, a console screen will appear when you launch Topology. Post the output in this console after reproducing the SSH problem.

Make sure the C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\campusmgr.properties file exists. Often times, there is a hidden ".txt" extension on files, so make sure the file is not named campusmgr.properties.txt. Post this file from the server.
