System Requirements

For information on hardware requirements, refer to the "Prime Infrastructure PnP Gateway Server Requirements" section of the Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.2 Quick Start Guide.

The Cisco Prime Infrastructure Plug and Play Gateway 1.2.1 standalone server patch must be installed on the Cisco Prime Infrastructure Plug and Play Gateway server 1.2. The system requirements are the same as that for the Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.2 Plug and Play Gateway server.

Installation Notes

This section contains instructions for installing the Cisco Prime Infrastructure Plug and Play Gateway:

Plug and Play Gateway Patch Installation

Plug and Play Gateway Patch Installation

The Plug and Play Gateway standalone server patch is available in the pnp-gateway-patch-1.2.1.5.tar.gz file.

The patch upgrade procedure requires an FTP or TFTP server containing the patch file. This server must be reachable from the Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.2 Plug and Play Gateway standalone server.

1. Log in to the Plug and Play Gateway standalone server as admin user.

2. Create a repository in the configuration mode and execute the repository command by providing the repository name and other details.

3. Use the patch install command to install the pnp-gateway-patch-1.2.1.5.tar.gz Plug and Play Gateway standalone patch.

4. Execute the pnp setup command to reconfigure the Plug and Play standalone server and start the plug and play processes.

The following is a sample output of the patch upgrade with the url FTP:

pnp-server login: admin 
Password: 
pnp-server/admin# configure 
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
pnp-server/admin(config)# repository <repository_name>
pnp-server/admin(config-Repository)# url ftp://<SERVER_HOST_NAME>/<FOLDER_LOCATION> 
pnp-server/admin(config-Repository)# user <USER_ID> password <OPTION> <PASSWORD> 
pnp-server/admin(config-Repository)# exit

CSCud61403

Symptom: An error message is displayed during the Plug and Play standalone server setup.

Condition: During the Plug and Play standalone server setup, when the pnp setup command is run, the Plug and Play Gateway on the standalone server tries to disable the local Plug and Play Gateway on Cisco Prime Infrastructure. This results in the Plug and Play Gateway in the standalone server not receiving the correct CLIs from Cisco Prime Infrastructue, and the following error message is displayed:

Attempting to disable the local PnP Gateway in Prime Infrastructure Machine 
10.104.105.170
Enter the username to login to the Prime Infrastructure Machine: [admin] 
Enter the password to login to the Prime Infrastructure Machine: 
Unknown error <ncs pnp disable

Workaround: You can ignore the error message.

CSCuc47341

Symptom: The configuration CLI template fails on Cisco Prime Infrastructure even if the CLIs are pushed to the device.

Condition: When Cisco Prime Infrastructure deploys the configuration CLI template, in some cases, when the device displays warning messages, these warning messages are treated as failure by Cisco Prime Infrastructure.

Workaround: When you find that the configuration CLI template has failed on Cisco Prime Infrastructure, check the ifm_pnp logs to check the actual cause of the failure. If the logs do not show any invalid CLI strings and the warning message (from the device) can be viewed in the logs, the config failure status shown on Cisco Prime Infrastructure can be ignored.

Resolved Caveats

There are no resolved caveats for Cisco Prime Infrastructure Plug and Play Gateway Release 1.2.1.5.
