Bug ID
Description
Additional Information

CSCsa94018

Pages/dialog boxes display no data after device goes down.

This problem occurs when you:

1. Launch CiscoView Mini-RMON Manager.

2. Select a new application page or refresh the current one.

If the device being monitored goes down before a new page is opened or the current page is refreshed, no data is displayed in all subsequent pages and dialog boxes.

Also, a message does not appear that the device is down.

Workaround:

To get confirmation that the device is down, close the current session and then open a new one for the device.

CSCsb07793

Sometimes Device Selector does not work as expected.

This problem occurs when you:

1. Launch multiple CiscoView Mini-RMON Manager sessions.

2. Expand a folder in the Device Selector of an open session by clicking the plus sign beside it.

Sometimes, instead of the folder expanding, the Device Selector tree collapses and displays only the main folder.

After you expand the main folder, the expandable folders beneath it displays a minus sign, instead of a plus sign.

Workaround:

Click the minus sign for an expandable folder. A plus sign is displayed and the Device Selector works as expected.
