Installing CIMC-E 1.0.2

Before installing CIMC-E, make sure all prerequisites are met.

Prerequisites

Before you install the CIMC-E software, you must enable and configure the Embedded Service Engine. See Cisco Integrated Management Controller Express for information on enabling and configuring the Embedded Service Engine.

Ensure that you have the appropriate Cisco 2911, Cisco 2921, Cisco 2951, or Cisco 3925, or Cisco 3945 to serve as the host router.

Ensure that the host router is running Cisco IOS Release 15.0(1)M or a later software release. To see which release your router is currently running, examine the output from the show version command.

Ensure that you have an FTP or HTTP server to which an installation file can be downloaded from Cisco.com and uncompressed prior to installation being performed from the router.

Preparing to Install

Copy the appropriate files listed in Table 2 or Table 3 for your host router to an FTP server.

Installing CIMC-E 1.0.2

See the "Installing CIMC-E on the Embedded Service Engine" section in Cisco Integrated Management Controller Express.

Limitations and Restrictions

In CIMC-E 1.0.2, there is no undo or no form support for commands. That is, once a command is entered, there is no way to negate the command using the CIMC-E interface. To negate the command, you must log in to Cisco IOS software and enter the no form of the configuration command.

Upgrading to and from the CIMC-E beta image is not supported. You must install a released version of CIMC-E to obtain upgrade support.

CIMC-E 1.0.2 is not compatible with Cisco Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) Express on the Cisco 2921, Cisco 2951, and Cisco 3925 platforms.

Caveats

Caveats describe unexpected behavior or defects in Cisco software releases. Severity 1 caveats are the most serious caveats, severity 2 caveats are less serious, and severity 3 caveats are the least serious of these three severity levels.


Note To reach the Bug Toolkit, log in to Cisco.com and go to: http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/Support/Bugtool/launch_bugtool.pl.  (If the defect that you have requested cannot be displayed, this may be due to one or more of the following reasons: the defect number does not exist, the defect does not have a customer-visible description yet, or the defect has been marked Cisco Confidential.)  


Open Caveats in CIMC-E 1.0.2

Rollback files show up on router flash

CSCtn57405 Bender:Module reload count statistics are not correct, got increased by 2

CSCtn81303 Unable to reload 2nd Core from module side if reload was issued previously.

CSCtj09403 CIMC-E:Stale GUI sessions seen when opening different window/tab on Microsoft Internet Explorer.

CSCtj21216 CIMC-E sees this msg: "cli/phase: no such node/attribute."

CSCtj39057 CIMCE GUI: Not able to handle Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 browser.

CSCtk58448 Create trap in scope snmp results in error msg with the code line.

CSCto00278 CIMCE: show all does not display name with same spelling but different number.

Rollback files show up on router flash

Symptom    Many rollback files show up on the flash inside the router.

Conditions   Once CIMC-E is properly configured, the compact flash card in the router may have several files, for example, rollOct-13-20-22-21.754-0.

Workaround   The user can remove these files manually if needed.

CSCtn57405  Bender:Module reload count statistics are not correct, got increased 
by 2

Symptom    The module statistics for the CLI reload count gets incremented incorrectly by 2 instead of 1.

Conditions    This issue is only seen on vsem platforms. To reproduce:

1. Get the CLI reload count before doing the module reload.

c2921#service-module em0/0 statistics

Module Reset Statistics:
  CLI reset count = 8
 CLI reload count = 8
 Registration request timeout reset count = 0
  Error recovery timeout reset count = 0
  Module registration count = 13

2. Execute module reload from Cisco IOS prompt.

c2921#service-module em0/0 reload

3. Get the CLI reload count and notice that it got incremented by 2 instead of 1. It went from 8 to 10.

c2921#service-module em0/0 statistics

Module Reset Statistics:
  CLI reset count = 8
 CLI reload count = 10
 Registration request timeout reset count = 0
  Error recovery timeout reset count = 0
  Module registration count = 14

Workaround   There is no workaround currently.

CSCtn81303  Unable to reload 2nd Core from module side if reload was issued 
previously.

Symptom    When issuing the reload command from the Embedded Service Engine after previously executing a reload from the Cisco IOS prompt, the reload may fail with an error message.

Conditions   This issue is only seen on vsem platforms.

1. Reload from the Cisco IOS prompt.

# service-module embedded-service-engine 0/0 reload

2. After the reload is complete, open a session on the Embedded Service Engine and reload.

# service-module embedded-service-engine 0/0 session
se-110-0-0-2# reload
Reloading the system will terminate all end user sessions.
Doing a reload will cause any unsaved configuration data to be lost.
Are you sure you want to reload? [confirm]
RBCP did not setup shutdown/resetno such attribute

Workaround   Reload using the Cisco IOS command.

CSCtj09403 CIMC-E:Stale GUI sessions seen when opening different window/tab on 
Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Symptom    Stale GUI sessions appear if user does not log out.

Conditions   If a user logs into the GUI and then accesses the GUI through another tab or window in Microsoft Internet Explorer, a stale GUI session will show up in the 2nd one.

Workaround   Log out of both GUI sessions and only log in using one browser tab or window.

CSCtj21216 CIMC-E sees this msg: "cli/phase: no such node/attribute."

Symptom    An error message "cli/phase: no such node/attribute" appears when opening a session on the Embedded Service Engine.

Conditions   In order to see this message, the user must session into the Embedded Service Engine while it is booting up.

Workaround   No work around is needed. The error message is benign.

CSCtj39057 CIMCE GUI: Not able to handle Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 browser.

Symptom    The CIMC-E GUI does not display or function properly in Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.

Conditions   To see this issue, the user must be using Internet Explorer 6 to access the CIMC-E GUI.

Workaround   To workaround this issue, the user should upgrade to Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.

CSCtk58448  Create trap in scope snmp results in error msg with the code line.

Symptom    Creating an SNMP trap may result in an error.

Conditions   

1. Create the SNMP trap.

2. Exit down one level.

3. Try to commit the trap creation.

Workaround   Create the trap again. Do not exit down one level.

CSCto00278  CIMCE:  show all does not display name with same spelling but 
different number.

Symptom    The show all scope command does not display all users if the users have same spelling for the username and a number appended to the end of the username such as username test1 and username test2.

Conditions   

1. Create username test1 and test2

scope user

create username test1

set password x

commit

top

scope user

create username test2

set password x

commit

2. Issue the show command to verify that both users were created:

se-10-0-0-108 /user # show username test1
User Name:	test1
Group(s):	cimce users
UCS Privileges:	ucs user
se-10-0-0-108 /user # show username test2
User Name:	test2
Group(s):	cimce users
UCS Privileges:	ucs user

3. Issue the show all command and notice that test1 is not displayed.

se-10-0-0-188 /user # show all
test2

Workaround   Avoid creating username with a number appended to the end of the username.
