Useful Information

Table 3 provides information on problems known to exist in CWVM that are the result of older Cisco IOS software known problems. These problems do not exist in CWVM if you are using the latest Cisco IOS software version (Cisco IOS 12.4.(11)T or higher).

Table 3 Known Cisco IOS Software Problems Impacting CWVM 3.1 

Summary
Explanation

CWVM does not provide DSP status for the PVDM2 modules in the Voice Feature card for AS5350XM and AS5400XM devices

When PVDM2 modules are present on the Voice Feature card on Cisco AS5350XM or AS5400XM Universal Gateways, CISCO-DSP-MGMT-MIB is not populated for the DSPs. Hence, CWVM does not provide the DSP status information for these DSPs.

For more information, refer to the corresponding Cisco IOS bug: CSCsd53803.


Table 4 provides information on problems known to exist in CWVM that are the result of known problems in CiscoWorks Common Services.

Table 4 Known CiscoWorks Common Services Problems Impacting CWVM 3.1 

Summary
Explanation

Daylight Saving Time (DST) in certain time zones causes unintended time offsets

On CiscoWorks servers in Brazil, Venezuela, Iran, Argentina, and Australia, application functions that are based on system date and time—such as job scheduling or storing timestamps in log files—might be advanced or delayed by an hour.

This happens on CiscoWorks servers that have not been updated with the new DST policy changes. To update the CiscoWorks server, install the Daylight Saving Time (DST) Patch for CS 3.0.x on Windows (For Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Iran and Venezuela Time Zones); download the patch from this URL: http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/cw2000-cd-one

The related bug ID is CSCsm43797.


Known Problems

Table 5 describes problems known to exist in this release.


Note To obtain more information about known problems, access the Cisco Software Bug Toolkit at http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/Support/Bugtool/home.pl. (You will be prompted to log into Cisco.com.)


Table 5 Known Problems in CWVM 3.1 

Bug ID
Summary
Explanation

None

Sometimes an online help topic does not appear correctly.

Symptom:

Online help might not refresh properly in the browser when you use standalone client.

Workaround:

To work around the problem, close the browser window and click Help again.

None

Sometimes CWVM may not detect a device configuration failure.

Description:

For some Cisco IOS commands, errors are not reported in a form that CWVM recognizes. In these cases, CWVM might not detect a failure when a configuration change is attempted on the device. When this happens, CWVM reports that the configuration change is successful, but does not update or change the configuration.

Workaround:

Users should check the job details to verify that the device was properly updated.

None

In some instances, fields available in port configurations may not work properly for certain Cisco IOS releases or platforms.

Examples of fields that could cause problems include the following:

Ring frequency—The values for this field are platform specific. Only 25 and 50 are valid values for a 3600 device, while only 20 and 30 are valid values for an MC3810 device.

E&M port type—Values returned from MIB show that Type IV is a valid option. However, this option might not be available on all platforms.

Workaround:

None

CSCsb27529

CWVM3.1-Install summary contains an error message.

Symptom:

The following error message appears in the CWVM3.1-Install summary window:

ERROR: /opt/CSCOpx/setup/CSCOcvm.info not found. 
ERROR: GetProperty called with undefined package name: 
CSCOcvm. 

Condition:

The message appears only on Solaris 2.9 systems.

The CWVM3.1-Install summary window contains this error message if a user with an "install" user account is present in the server. This error does not have any impact on CWVM functionality.

Workaround:

1. Remove the "install" user account, then reinstall CWVM.

2. Change the user ID to zero for install user.
