We've built CTC batch files for logging into most NEs relying on JRE 1.2 and 1.3.1, we don't have NEs on the network that require 1.4.2.
Would it be possible for someone to write up a quick bit of software to grab the http://ip/getSwVersion, and launch the proper CTC batch script based on the string retrieved from the NE's http server?
While we're on the subject, I've noticed that, although it uses the same JRE, the CTC launch process for NEs on software revision 3.1 don't work correctly with the JRE 1.2 batch script we've written. is the CMS.JAR simply not compatible, or is it that this software revision requires a more complex CTC initialization process?
We used an alternative approach: We set up separate virtual servers on a Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server host. Each virtual server has a different JRE installation and on those repsective desktops, we bookmarked the appropriate CTC instances (e.g., network nodes).
We had that idea, but it would cost money that our department doesn't have. The Cisco method of using 3 separate browsers, each with a separate default JRE, is pretty good, but it's a frail work-around because there are other vendor's equipment on the network who use Java management software. People uninstall and reinstall JREs in an attempt to fix problems with other network elements, and that work-around would be broken pretty quickly. IMO, Cisco should take responsibility for this problem and create a solution that doesn't require CTM or additional expenditure.
