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 and

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 with 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, modify the gatekeeper file located in /opt/CSCOpx/lib/vbroker/gatekeeper.cfg.

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

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

/etc/init.d/dmgtd start

Operating System Upgrade

If you upgrade the operating system after CiscoWorks Common Services is installed, you must re-install CiscoWorks Common Services.

Re-installing CiscoWorks Common Services will allow the installation process to check 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.

Support Information

CiscoWorks supports the following:

Operating System—CiscoWorks Common Services 3.0 supports only US-English and Japanese versions of Solaris Operating Systems. It does not support any other language version. Set the default locale to US-English for US-English version and Japanese for Japanese version.

Solaris 2.8 and Solaris 2.9.


Note We recommend that you install the Solaris Operating System in entire distribution mode.


Browser—CiscoWorks supports both the English and Japanese versions of the following browsers:

On Windows and Windows XP clients—Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 (version 6.0.2600.0000) or Internet Explorer 6.0 with Service Pack 1 (version 6.0.2800.1106), Netscape Navigator 7.1, and Mozilla 1.7.1

On Solaris clients—Netscape Navigator 7.0 for Solaris 2.8 and 2.9, and Mozilla 1.7 for Solaris 2.8 and 2.9.

Hardware:

For Server system—CiscoWorks Common Services supports Sun UltraSPARC10.

It also supports Ultra SPARC II, IIi, and IIe and Ultra SPARC III and III Cu machines.

For Client system—CiscoWorks supports IBM system with at least a 300 MHz Pentium processor running Windows (Professional and Server), or Windows XP SP1.

It also supports UltraSPARC 10 running Solaris 2.8 or 2.9.

Memory (RAM):

For Server system—512 MB (to install all CiscoWorks Common Services components).

For Client system—256 MB.

Java Support

Certain applications use the browser's native Java Virtual Machine (JVM), while others use Sun's Java Plug-in. In order for CiscoWorks to function correctly, you must use the correct version of Java.

The supported native JVM versions are:

JVM 5.0.0.3802 or later

Java Plug-in version 1.4.2_04


Note Java Plug-in 1.4.2_04 might allow an untrusted applet to change the user privileges including read and write permissions. This problem has been fixed in Java plugin 1.4.2_06. For more details, see Sun Alert ID: 57591.

You can modify your CiscoWorks installation to use Sun Java Plug-in 1.4.2_06. For more details, see the Using Sun Java Plug-in 1.4.2_06 section Installation and Setup Guide for Campus Manager 4.0 on Solaris or Installation Guide for Internetwork Performance Monitor 2.6 as applicable.


To verify JVM:

From Internet Explorer, select Tools > Sun Java Console.

From Netscape Navigator, select Tools > Web Development > Java Console.

From Mozilla, select Tools > Web Development > Java Console.

To enable the native Java console in Microsoft Internet Explorer:


Step 1 Select Tools > Internet Options > Advanced.

Step 2 Select the Java Console in the Microsoft VM section.

Step 3 Restart Internet Explorer.


To enable Java Console in Netscape Navigator:


Step 1 Select Edit > Preferences > Advanced.

Step 2 Select Enable Java checkbox.

Step 3 Restart Netscape Navigator.


To enable Java Console in Mozilla:


Step 1 Select Edit > Preferences > Advanced.

Step 2 Select Enable Java checkbox in the Advanced Preferences window

Step 3 Restart Mozilla.



Note CiscoWorks Common Services does not require JVM and Java Plug-in. However, some CiscoWorks applications may require these.


Integrating with Third-party Vendors

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

HP Network Node Manager 6.4.

HP Network Node Manager 7.0.

HP 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 ensure that you have successfully completed configuring Cisco Secure ACS with the CiscoWorks server. If you have installed CiscoView after configuring the CiscoWorks Login Module to ACS mode, then CiscoView users are not granted any permissions. However, the CiscoView application is registered to Cisco Secure ACS.

CiscoWorks login modules allow you to add new users 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


Note For more information, see the following documents:

User Guide for Cisco Secure ACS for Windows Server 3.2—See this document to understand Cisco Secure Groups, Users, Command Authorization Sets, etc.

User Guide for CiscoWorks Common Services 3.0—See this document to understand the CiscoWorks login modes.

User Guide for CiscoView 6.1—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

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

Approver

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

Network Operator

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

Network Administrator

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

System Administrator

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.

Documentation Errata for CiscoView

When you go through the Online help for CiscoView 6.1, note the following:

All references to Device and Credentials should read Device and Credential.

In the CiscoWorks Server topic:

The first bullet should read CiscoWorks Home Page.

The seventh bullet should read Groups.

The third sentence in the Device Management topic should read:

CiscoView displays the device list using the Groups feature, which determines the membership of a group by interpreting and applying the rule associated with a group of devices.

On page 1-11 of User Guide for CiscoView 6.1 and in the Using the Object Selector Online help topic, note the following:

Step 2 should read: (Optional) Enter a partial IP address in the provided field and click Filter. The list is filtered to show only devices containing the string you entered. In the Object Selector screenshot, the button should read Filter, not Go.

CSCin30836

CiscoWorks Common
Services installation hangs on Solaris.

This happens when you reinstall or upgrade over a broken installation.

Workaround:

Clean up the broken installation and then install CiscoWorks Common Services.

CSCin26986

Reference to point patches exists even after upgrade.

Even after you upgrade to the newer version of the product, the patches that were applied to previous version are listed when you select the product in the Software Centre page.

Workaround:

The information though misleading, does not impact the proper functioning.

CSCin21594

Installation hangs or slows down when you install CWCS on a mounted path.

Installation on a mounted path may slow down or hang because of the slow response of the remote server.

Workaround:

1. Abort the installation.

2. Copy the image locally.

3. Re-start installation.

CSCsa06021

Installation may fail if the CD-ROM is mounted incorrectly.

When you use Volume Management, Volume daemon (vold) mounts the CD-ROM as /cdrom/cdrom0, where cdrom0 is a link to volume label of the CD-ROM.

In normal circumstances, the link gets cleared after the CD-ROM is ejected. If it does not clear when you mount another CD-ROM, it is mounted as /cdrom/cdrom0. This is then linked to cdone3_0#1. This # character causes problem during installation.

To verify whether the directory name has a # character appended to its name, navigate to the /cdrom/cdrom0 directory, and check the present working directory using the pwd command.

Workaround:

1. Unmount the CD drive using umount command.

2. Eject the CD-ROM using eject command.

3. Stop the vold by entering /etc/init.d/volmgt stop.

4. Start the vold by entering /etc/init.d/volmgt start.

5. Delete the contents of /cdrom0 directory.

The CD-ROM will now mount normally.

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 and IBM 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.

Logout from a CS server is an Authentication Server fails when accessed using domain name.

Accessing the server in SSO AS mode with fully qualified domain name (example http://hostname.cisco.com:1741), log out does not happen.

Workaround:

1. If PX_HOST property at NMSROOT/lib/classpath/md.properties is configured with fully qualified domain name, accessing the server with fully qualified domain name will work.

But, if the PX_HOST property at NMSROOT/lib/classpath/md.properties is configured as hostname, you have to access the server without using domain name in the url you specify.

2. Close the browser window.

You can use export from device selector option.

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: 
When there are two DCR domains, M1 with 
Slaves S11 and S12, and M2 with slaves S21 
and S22. Now, 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.

CSCsa39624

In RME 4.0, you can see devices directly under /CS@hostname (Common group root) in the Device selector screens.

CSCsa43396

DSBU 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. Now 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.

CSCsa38647

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.

Workaround:

None. This does not degrade CiscoView functionality in any way.

CSCin79203

CiscoView sometimes displays partial table values.

When the length of a table value exceeds the width of its column, CiscoView displays the first part of that value and appends it with an ellipsis (...).

Workaround:

To view the entire table value, place the cursor over the ellipsis at the end of the desired entry.

A tool tip that displays the entire value appears.

CSCsa35308

CiscoWorks server performance decreases after opening multiple Monitoring dialog boxes.

This problem occurs when you:

1. Open multiple Monitoring dialog boxes (10 on a low-end server; 15 on a high-end server) for a CiscoWorks server from clients with multiple CiscoWorks and CiscoView sessions active.

The dialog boxes refresh properly and the server performs normally.

2. Open additional Monitoring dialog boxes.

Server performance decreases and some of the dialog boxes stop refreshing. The following message is displayed:

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.
