Starting up with LMS 3.1

Hi All,

I have had used LMS in the past however it was always an installed setup.

Now here I'm facing a situation wherein I have to startup a new LMS environment from the scratch.

Could you please advise how to start with the setup i.e. after installation what all steps are neccessary to make all the devices appear in the LMS database?

Where should I start with.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Re: Starting up with LMS 3.1

I'd probably start here:

Once installed, I'd go to Common Services / Software Center and do Software Updates and Device Updates. Make sure you have all the latest software and device packages. :)

Then you might go to CiscoWorks Assistance portlet and the Workflows/ Server Setup option. You'd answer the questions and settings in a seamless workflow, rather than going to each specific admin page.

Know that network discovery (if you're doing that) will probably be an iterative process. You'll discover, refine, fix device ACLs and again, etc, etc. You'll get to a point where you should have all you are required to manage.
