CiscoWorks 2000 Question

Hi,

I have CW2000 installed on solaris and it can't seem to recognize system messages from a cat6500 OS 5.3. Is there any reason for this? Thanks.

Re: CiscoWorks 2000 Question

By System messages you mean Syslog messages or traps?

I mean syslog messages.

Re: CiscoWorks 2000 Question

Is the device not sending out Syslog messages or is RME not receiving it or showing it under expected device report?. Is this RME 3.4?

Re: CiscoWorks 2000 Question

Here's a few things to check:

Sun side:

under /var/adm/log parse the syslog_info file for the ip address that the 6500 is defined on the system as.

Cat side:

ensure that you've defined logging to the server, level of severity, and types

set logging server X.X.X.X

set logging server severity (0-7)

set snmp trap enable syslog

set logging server timestamp

Re: CiscoWorks 2000 Question

Hi,

Cat6500 is sending the syslog messages and cw2k is receiving it. Clearly, there are entries from cat6500 on the /var/adm/log/syslog_info file.

Cat side config is complete as what akemp has shown. but i don't know how to do the parsing of the syslog_info for the Cat ip Add. Can you show me how?

btw, RME version is 3.1.

Re: CiscoWorks 2000 Question

Parsing it for the IP address is just looking for a matching string since the events are logged as ip address in dotted notation with the OID appended (error number from the mib tree) just do a "more syslog_info | grep (ip address)" and if your system is catching the syslog traps it'll show up.
