Re: Installing CCM on Non-Cisco Server For Lab Testing

hi,

you cannot install CCM software on a norml PC or other servers othern than Cisco documented. In case you try to do so you may recieve errors while running the H/W detection cd.

Although there are cracks for installing the CCM on a non recommended server it might work unexpectedly.

You can install CCM on non-MCS platform using the "floppy trick". You will be using original Cisco CDs with all original settings and services. I tried this "trick" on couple Compaq/HP desktops, and then on VMWare to simulate our production environment in the lab. Here is the outline for the installation:

1. Copy the boot image (bootimg.bin) from the CD1 (hardware Detection) to a floppy disk using FDIMAGE.EXE utility.

2. Modify the AUTOEXEC.BAT to skip the "Hardware Detection" phase by specifying the platform manually (it could be 7825 or simpliest IBM image).

3. Boot using this floppy and start the installation.

Just play a little with different "platforms". It's proven to work.

Good luck,

Michael

Re: Installing CCM on Non-Cisco Server For Lab Testing

when we ordered the CCM 4.1(3)

we didnot get the cd : Hardware Detection

we directly got the windows cd and the ccm cds...

and there aint bootimg.bin in the windows one :/

even it is the cd that detects the hardware..

so any solution?

If you are able to boot from the CD, it means you HAVE the "bootimg.bin" file. It's the only way to boot from CD. The file could be hidden (have hidden / system / readonly attribute), but it IS on the CD.

CM installation is looking for shutdown.exe file under c:\utils. Before you run CM install CDs run win-os-upgrade-k9-2000.2.7 or later. Then copy shutdown.exe from c:\programm files\cisco\updates\2000.2.7 to c:\utils. Make sure to do registry mods first before running 2000.2.7.

That should do it.
