Threat Response

My Threat Response software just quit working, when I went to download the install software (updates) they all say "DO NOT DOWNLOAD". What's up with that?

By the way, I get the page below when I try to launch TR:

Re: Threat Response

That is the very reason I quit using it, and went back to the simple/useless IEV.

Re: Threat Response

Actually, it quit working because I had installed Microsoft's SUS server which uses IIS. Apache and IIS do not get along together on the same computer. I love CTR and what it has a long way to go though. If I did not own the VMS bundle, I'd use IEV as well...but IEV leaves much to be desired in my environment. Cisco is getting better with it's software... :)

Re: Threat Response

We are purchsing the VMS bundle shortly, and at that point I will attempt using CTR again, but so far my opinion has been negative of the product. The JAVA applet I needed loaded to connect to the CTR server was a different Java applet than the one for browsing to a Cisco switch. So I had to keep changing Java versions depending on what I needed to do. I opened a TAC case and they said "that's the way it is". I also had numerous Apache problems. They could've been related to other services, but this was a dedicated server just for CTR, so I doubt it. I like the concept, and in the perfect environment it's probably a great solution, but it's another piece of Cisco software that needs allot of development.

Re: Threat Response

Not sure if you resolved this or not but I am able to download the update from:

Also it's possible your database is corrupted. You can check to see if it is with these steps:

1) From the Windows 2000 Start Menu Start-->Run

2) Enter "cmd" in the Open drop down box Click OK

3) From the cmd.exe window enter cd C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\Threat Response\mysql\bin

4) Run the following program with options mysqlcheck --user=root --check phoenix alarm

If it doesn't return the status of OK and returns the following output :

C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\Threat Response\mysql\bin>mysqlcheck --user=root --check phoenix alarm phoenix.alarm warning : Table is marked as crashed warning : 2 clients is using or hasn't closed the table properly warning : Size of indexfile is: 132255744 Should be: 132058112 warning : Size of datafile is: 244790236 Should be: 244392740 error : Can't read key from filepos: 131244032 error : Corrupt

There was no C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\Threat Response\apache\logs\error.log.* or C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\Threat Response\apache\logs\access.log.*

You need to try the following repair command :

C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\Threat Response\mysql\bin>mysqlcheck --user=root --repair phoenixalarm Please let me know if this helps resolve the issue.
