Time Zone Acronyms and Offset Settings

Table 2 shows time zone acronyms supported in the CiscoWorks applications that use the time zone feature.

Column 1—alphabetically lists the supported CiscoWorks time zone acronyms. Change Audit reports may display time zone information differently.

Column 2—lists the spelled out time zone definition.

Column 3—lists the area covered by the time zone.

Column 4—lists the column's offsets from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

Column 5—lists the time zone setting for that zone's server.

Column 6—lists the resulting output in reports.

If you generate reports, the output will vary depending on whether the data has been processed through Perl or Java. Table 2 also provides possible output for either case scenario.

To ensure that time zones are translated correctly—especially when your devices, servers, and clients are in different time zones—follow these guidelines:

When configuring time zones on managed devices, use the acronyms listed in the Time Zone Acronym Setting on Device column. To set time zones on devices, use the command described in the device-specific Command Reference documentation.

The device should be configured to send syslogs with the appropriate timezone acronym that indicates whether daylight savings is in effect at the time of sending the syslog. This is to ensure that the syslog analyzer or Essentials uses the correct acronym for time conversion.

When configuring time zones on CiscoWorks servers, use the supported values in the Time Zone Setting on Server column.


Note Changes made to the system time zone from outside CiscoWorks applications might not be reflected in already-running CiscoWorks applications. After changing the time zone, restart all CiscoWorks applications.

Multi-homed Machines

A multi-homed machine is a machine that has multiple NIC cards, each configured with different IP addresses. To run CiscoWorks Common Services on a multi-homed machine, there are two requirements.

All IP addresses must be configured in DNS.

Owing to restrictions in CORBA, only one IP address can be used by the client/browser to access the server. You must select one IP address as the external address, with which the client will login to the CiscoWorks server.

To select an IP address:


Step 1 Modify the gatekeeper file located in /opt/CSCOpx/lib/vbroker/gatekeeper.cfg.

Step 2 Replace every instance of external-IP-address with the external IP address you choose, and remove the "#" character, from the following:

#vbroker.gatekeeper.backcompat.callback.host=external-IP-address

#vbroker.se.exterior.host=external-IP-address

#vbroker.se.iiop_tp.host=external-IP-address

#vbroker.se.interior.host=external-IP-address

Step 3 After modifying the gatekeeper file, restart the Daemon Manager by entering

/etc/init.d/dmgtd start


Operating System Upgrade

While installing CiscoWorks Common Services, the installation process checks for required patches. Install any missing solaris patches.

For a list of required patches, see Chapter 1 of Installation and Setup Guide for CiscoWorks Common Services (Includes CiscoView) on Solaris.


Caution If CiscoWorks Common Services is run without the required patches, it will not function properly.

Integrating with Third-party Vendors

Use the Integration Utility to integrate Cisco device information and Cisco applications into SNMP management platforms like:

HP OpenView Network Node Manager 6.4.

HP OpenView Network Node Manager 7.0.

HP OpenView Network Node Manager 7.0.1.

NetView 7.1.

This utility allows you to launch CiscoView from an SNMP platform even when CiscoView is running on a different machine than the NMS. It also allows you to integrate other applications into NMS menus.

When CiscoView is installed on the same machine as the target NMS, the Integration Utility runs as part of a single CiscoView install.

However, when the target NMS is installed on a different machine, the utility walks you through the steps required to integrate Cisco device information and applications into an SNMP management platform.

You might need to run the Integration Utility to:

Change your Cisco.com login information.

Change your CiscoWorks server location.

Register a new application.

Change the NMS with which you wish to integrate your Cisco applications.

For more information on Integration Utility, see User Guide for CiscoWorks Integration Utility 1.6.

Using CiscoView in ACS Mode

Before performing any tasks that are described in this section, you must successfully complete configuring Cisco Secure ACS with the CiscoWorks server. The CiscoView application is registered to Cisco Secure ACS.

CiscoWorks login modules allow you to add new users by using a source of authentication other than the native CiscoWorks server mechanism (that is, the CiscoWorks Local login module). You can use the Cisco Secure ACS services for this purpose.

The following topics provide information on how to use CiscoView in the ACS mode:

CiscoWorks Roles and Privileges

Modifying the CiscoWorks Roles and Privileges

Device-Based Filtering

For more information, see the following documents:

User Guide for Cisco Secure ACS for Windows Server Version 3.3

See this document to understand Cisco Secure Groups, Users, Command Authorization Sets, etc.

User Guide for CiscoWorks Common Services 3.0.3

See this document to understand the CiscoWorks login modes.

User Guide for CiscoView 6.1.2

See this document to understand all CiscoView tasks.

CiscoWorks Roles and Privileges

By default, the CiscoWorks server authentication scheme has five roles in ACS mode. They are listed here from least privileged to most privileged:

Help Desk

A user with this role has the privilege to access network status information from the persisted data. The user does not have the privilege to contact any device or schedule a job that will reach the network.

Approver

A user with this role has the privilege to approve all CiscoView tasks.

Network Operator

A user with this role has the privilege to perform all tasks that involve collecting data from the network. The user does not have write access on the network. The user can also perform all the Help Desk tasks.

Network Administrator

A user with this role has the privilege to change the network. The user can also perform the Network Operator tasks.

System Administrator

A user with this role has the privilege to perform all CiscoWorks system administration tasks. See the Permissions Report on the CiscoWorks server (Common Services > Server > Reports > Permission Report).

Cisco Secure ACS allows you to modify the privileges to these roles. You can also create custom roles and privileges that help you customize Common Services client applications to best suit your business workflow and needs.

To modify the default CiscoWorks roles and privileges, see Modifying the CiscoWorks Roles and Privileges.

To create the custom roles and privileges, see Cisco Secure ACS Online help (on Cisco Secure ACS, click Online Documentation > Shared Profile Components > Command Authorization Sets).

Modifying the CiscoWorks Roles and Privileges

If another instance of CiscoView is registered with the same Cisco Secure ACS, your instance of CiscoView will inherit those role settings. Furthermore, any changes you make to CiscoView roles will be propagated to other instances of CiscoView through Cisco Secure ACS.

If you reinstall CiscoView, your Cisco Secure ACS settings will automatically be applied upon CiscoView restart.


Step 1 Select Shared Profile Components > CiscoView and click the CiscoView roles that you want to modify.

Step 2 Specify whether the roles have read-only or read-write privileges.

Step 3 Click Submit.


Device-Based Filtering

Most of the CiscoView tasks are device-centric. The devices listed for you while performing the CiscoView tasks, are based on your role and the associated privileges that are defined in Cisco Secure ACS.

Cannot launch CiscoWorks applications from third-party NMS after reinstalling CD One.

Third-party NMS application links do not reflect changes made to SSL settings after reinstalling CD One.

Workaround:

Perform the integration again. This is required to update the application registration in NMS.

CSCin08472

Cannot launch CiscoWorks applications from third-party NMS after enabling or disabling SSL.

After you enable or disable SSL in CiscoWorks server, you cannot launch CiscoWorks applications from a third-party NMS, such as HP OpenView Network Node Manager and Netview.

Workaround:

You must perform the integration each time you enable or disable SSL in the CiscoWorks server. This is required to update the application registration in NMS.

CSCin08471

Integration with third party NMS should be performed after installing CiscoWorks in a specific scenario.

If you enable CiscoWorks server for SSL mode after installation, integration with third party NMS should be performed later.

Workaround:

If SSL mode is enabled for the CiscoWorks server, we recommend that you perform integration with a third-party NMS after installing CiscoWorks.

This is necessary because any change in protocol requires a reintegration.

CSCdr38931

Error messages may appear when running Change Integration Options on a system with insufficient disk space.

CSCsb21911

Two entries of CiscoView (CiscoView 5.x and CiscoView) are seen following an integration with later version of NMIDB i.e. after NMIDB 1.0.084.

Consider this scenario:

You have already integrated using NMIDB version 1.0.084.

Then if you download and integrate with new NMIDB, the menu entry CiscoView5.x is not removed since the new registry file name in the new NMIDB is different.

In this way both menu items appear.

Workaround:

To see the correct CiscoView entry after integration:

1. Unintegrate ('nmic -u' which would do application unregistration).

2. Download the latest NMIDB version to do an integration again.

DSBU cluster does not retain parent-child relationship in the presence of a duplicate device.

This problem occurs when you configure a slave.

For example:

1. Let M be a master with DSBU cluster C1 and member M1.

2. Let S be standalone with DSBU cluster C1 and member M2.

1. Make S a slave of M allowing its devices to be added to M.

Here, C1 under S is taken as a duplicate and will not be added. However M2 is added without any change in its parent-dsbu-id.

M2 retains an invalid device-id as parent id.

Workaround:

Make sure that there are no duplicate DSBU clusters or members between the master and slave, before slave configuration.


Grouping Services Known Problems

Bug ID
Summary
Explanation

CSCsa23339

Two different users cannot create private groups with the same name.

Error messages appear when two different users create private groups with the same name in User Defined Groups.

Workaround:

Create a separate folder with any name and then create the private groups.

CSCsa43873

In LMS 2.5, groups are copied in backup-restore from master to master.

Additional shared groups appear after you backup or restore from a master of one domain to a master of another domain.

This problem appears only in a remote case where a common slave exists for two different masters.

For example:

There are two DCR domains, M1 with Slaves S11 and S12, and M2 with slaves S21 and S22.

If you restore after you take a backup in M1 and make S12 a slave of M2, S12 will become the common slave of M1's backup and M2.

The groups of M1 and S11 remain in M2 instead of being removed.

Workaround:

1. Change the mode of Master to Standalone. This will remove all the remote shared groups (groups from other machines) in M2's DCR domain.

2. Reconfigure the Master/Slave in DCR UI.

CSCsa44642

Fewer System Defined Groups appear after multiple mode changes in OGS.

This problem occurs when you switch a server from slave mode to standalone mode many times.

For example:

1. Configure a master (M) and a slave (S).

2. Move S to standalone mode and delete a few devices from S.

3. Configure S as a slave of M, again.

4. Query the CMFOGSServer on S, to get the number of System Defined Groups.

S will now have fewer number of groups and leaf level groups will be missing.

Workaround:

Restart the CMFOGSServer on S to create all the System Defined Groups. To do this:

1. To stop the CMFOGSServer, enter
NMSROOT/bin/pdterm CMFOGServer

2. To start the CMFOGSServer, enter
NMSROOT/bin/pdexec CMFOGServer

CMF database fails to run and throws the following Sybase Assertion error message:

*** ERROR *** Assertion 
failed: 100909 (9.0.0.1383). 

100909 is the Assertion ID.

Following are the scenarios where Assertion Error might appear:

1. If you use any third-party backup software to back up a live, running database, the Assertion Error might be thrown. This is because some of the database pages that have been modified will be in the database server cache, so the database file will be in an inconsistent state.

2. If you use any anti-virus software. The reason is, Adaptive Server Anywhere performs many reads and writes other than the normal I/O operations, which contribute to the good performance of Adaptive Server Anywhere. However, anti-virus software might detect this as a potential problem and quarantine the file. This becomes hazardous if the .log or temporary files are quarantined, and it may cause corruption by interfering with the normal functions of the database. Poor performance can also occur if the anti-virus software is checking all I/O operations performed by the database server.

Workaround:

We recommend that you do not use third-party backup software for backing up a running database.

We also recommend that you configure your anti-virus software so that it must not scan the NMSROOT/databases directory.

NMSROOT is the directory where you have installed CiscoWorks.

It has been found that the java API used to get system time returns one hour less than the actual server time during the affected period. As a result, the scheduled jobs are executed with a delay of one hour. Also, the logs and/or reports show incorrect time stamp.

The following jobs are affected:

PSU Device Downloads.

DCR Import/Export.

Sample job through jobcli.

The following time zones are affected:

Adelaide (GMT + 9.30)

Hobart (GMT+ 10.00)

Sydney (GMT + 10.30)

Workaround:

Reschedule the jobs by one hour ahead of the actual desirable time from March 27, 2006 to April 02, 2006.

Table 15 Known Problems in CiscoView Mini-RMON Manager 2.0 

Bug ID
Summary
Additional Information

CSCsa94018

Pages and dialog boxes or both 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 you open new page or refresh the current page, all subsequent pages and dialog boxes will display no data.

Also, no message appears that the device is down.

Workaround:

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

CSCsa82959

Able to install CiscoView Mini-RMON Manager device package in CiscoView 6.0 and CiscoView 6.1 without first installing CiscoView 6.1.1 engine patch.

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 display a minus sign instead of a plus sign.

Workaround:

Click the minus sign for an expandable folder.

A plus sign appears and the Object Selector works.

CSCsb07787

Cannot create history entry on Catalyst 5509 device.

When attempting to create a history entry from the Statistics page (Setup > Statistics History) on a Catalyst 5509 device, an error message is displayed and the entry is not created.

Cisco documentation and additional literature are available in the Product Documentation DVD package, which may have shipped with your product. The Product Documentation DVD is updated regularly and may be more current than printed documentation.

The Product Documentation DVD is a comprehensive library of technical product documentation on portable media. The DVD enables you to access multiple versions of hardware and software installation, configuration, and command guides for Cisco products and to view technical documentation in HTML. With the DVD, you have access to the same documentation that is found on the Cisco website without being connected to the Internet. Certain products also have .pdf versions of the documentation available.

The Product Documentation DVD is available as a single unit or as a subscription. Registered Cisco.com users (Cisco direct customers) can order a Product Documentation DVD (product number DOC-DOCDVD=) from Cisco Marketplace at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/products_psirt_rss_feed.html

Reporting Security Problems in Cisco Products

Cisco is committed to delivering secure products. We test our products internally before we release them, and we strive to correct all vulnerabilities quickly. If you think that you might have identified a vulnerability in a Cisco product, contact PSIRT:

Emergencies — security-alert@cisco.com

An emergency is either a condition in which a system is under active attack or a condition for which a severe and urgent security vulnerability should be reported. All other conditions are considered non emergencies.

Non emergencies — psirt@cisco.com

In an emergency, you can also reach PSIRT by telephone:

1 877 228-7302

1 408 525-6532


Tip We encourage you to use Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) or a compatible product to encrypt any sensitive information that you send to Cisco. PSIRT can work from encrypted information that is compatible with PGP versions 2.x through 8.x.

Never use a revoked or an expired encryption key. The correct public key to use in your correspondence with PSIRT is the one linked in the Contact Summary section of the Security Vulnerability Policy page at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/products_security_vulnerability_policy.html

The link on this page has the current PGP key ID in use.


Obtaining Technical Assistance

Cisco Technical Support provides 24-hour-a-day award-winning technical assistance. The Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website on Cisco.com features extensive online support resources. In addition, if you have a valid Cisco service contract, Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) engineers provide telephone support. If you do not have a valid Cisco service contract, contact your reseller.

Cisco Technical Support & Documentation Website

The Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website provides online documents and tools for troubleshooting and resolving technical issues with Cisco products and technologies. The website is available 24 hours a day, at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/techsupport

Access to all tools on the Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website requires a Cisco.com user ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a user ID or password, you can register at this URL:

http://tools.cisco.com/RPF/register/register.do


Note Use the Cisco Product Identification (CPI) tool to locate your product serial number before submitting a web or phone request for service. You can access the CPI tool from the Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website by clicking the Tools & Resources link under Documentation & Tools. Choose Cisco Product Identification Tool from the Alphabetical Index drop-down list, or click the Cisco Product Identification Tool link under Alerts & RMAs. The CPI tool offers three search options: by product ID or model name; by tree view; or for certain products, by copying and pasting show command output. Search results show an illustration of your product with the serial number label location highlighted. Locate the serial number label on your product and record the information before placing a service call.


Submitting a Service Request

Using the online TAC Service Request Tool is the fastest way to open S3 and S4 service requests. (S3 and S4 service requests are those in which your network is minimally impaired or for which you require product information.) After you describe your situation, the TAC Service Request Tool provides recommended solutions. If your issue is not resolved using the recommended resources, your service request is assigned to a Cisco engineer. The TAC Service Request Tool is located at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/techsupport/servicerequest

For S1 or S2 service requests or if you do not have Internet access, contact the Cisco TAC by telephone. (S1 or S2 service requests are those in which your production network is down or severely degraded.) Cisco engineers are assigned immediately to S1 and S2 service requests to help keep your business operations running smoothly.

To open a service request by telephone, use one of the following numbers:

Asia-Pacific: +61 2 8446 7411 (Australia: 1 800 805 227)
EMEA: +32 2 704 55 55
USA: 1 800 553-2447

Definitions of Service Request Severity

To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity definitions.

Severity 1 (S1)—Your network is "down," or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.

Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your business operation are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.

Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of your network is impaired, but most business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.

Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
