I have no luck whatsoever with starting UCSM 2.0(1t) on a Windows 2003 R2 (32-bit) machine: it says "Java 1.7 detected, Java 1.6 (or higher) required".
Release notes say: "The Cisco UCS Manager GUI is a Java-based application that requires Sun JRE 1.6 or higher"
So what's the bottom line - shall I expect UCSM 2.0 to work with Java 1.7, or not?
Solved! Go to Solution.
What is the OS on the client you are trying to access the UCSM from?
Is the java a 32-bit or 64-bit?
What browser are you trying to launch the UCSM from?
It's Windows 2003 R2 SE SP2 32-bit.
The browser is IE6, but the UCSM application seems to be downloading & installing fine (there is a nice shortcut to UCSM on the desktop) - it just doesn't want to start.
How about upgrading UCSM to 2.01w :-)
There is a known internal defect which causes UCSM to fail with JRE 1.7 and is fixed in 2.0.1w and above version.
To isolate the cause, can you try launching UCSM from a system running JRE 1.6 and verify the behavior ?
I'm running 2.01(w) and just updated my Win7 x64 machine to Java 1.7 from 1.6 and now UCSM is broken with the same error posted above. I've cleaned the Java cache, uninstalled/reinstalled JRE with no success. It seems Oracle has removed downloads for JRE 1.6 so downgrading isn't an option anymore. Is 1.7 really supposed to work with UCSM 2.01(w)?
Win7 SP1 x64 launching from IE9
Java 7 is not currently supported on any releases including UCSM 2.0(2q), 2.0(1x) or earlier. Support will be built into the upcoming 2.1 release later this year, and possibly backwards patched into UCS 2.0(2) and 2.0(1) software trains..
For now the requirement is for Java 1.6
I know this thread is a little stale.
There is the ability to directy download older versions of the Java JRE from the java.com site.
This should tide everyone over until 1.7 is supported.
Even with java 1.6 I get the error:
com.sun.deploy.net.JARSigningException: Found unsigned entry in resource: https://x.x.x.x/ucsm/unpacked/OfficeLnFs_2.7.jar
I am running java 1.6.0_33.
In Control Panel > Java, do you have the keep temporary files setting enabled in Temporary Internet Files? I was able to replicate the error you're seeing by disabling temporary files in java 1.6.
I assume you and I are in the same boat.... Cisco UCSM needs 1.6 and Netapp tools require 1.7.... Bloody annoying....
Still no fix...??
I've lost access to my UCS toys since, as they got 'repurposed' - but I would trust Robert on this one: if he says it's fixed, it probably means it really is!
Ive got a full fleaxPod in my Demolab so I am now upgreading to 2.0(3) now. Ill let you know when its done... Im sure it will work and will be better then running a VM for an older version..
You comming to Dublin in November??
As an alternative, you can always launch java webstart manually - from the dos command line. This gives you the flexibility to use the JVM of choice with the jnlp application. (for example, you could use java 1.6 for UCS emulator without downgrading your workstation from 1.7).
It is quite simple:
1) Launch JRE console from your java installation (something like C:\Program Files\Java\jre 6\bin\javacl.exe). Under Java/View panel - only select Java 1.6.
2) Launch the jnlp manually. For example:
C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\javaws.exe "ucsm.jnlp"
