System Requirements

For information on hardware requirements, see the "Prime Infrastructure Plug and Play 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

The Plug and Play Gateway standalone server patch is available in the pnp-gateway-patch-1.2.1.8.tar.gz file. The patch upgrade procedure requires an FTP or TFTP server containing the patch file.

You can access this server from the Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.2 Plug and Play Gateway standalone server by following these steps:

1. Log in to the Plug and Play Gateway standalone server as admin user. 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 
pnp-server/admin(config)# exit  

2. Use the patch install command to install the pnp-gateway-patch-1.2.1.8.tar.gz Plug and Play Gateway standalone patch. The following is a sample output of the pnp gateway patch upgrade:

pnp-server/admin# 
pnp-server/admin# patch install pnp-gateway-patch-1.2.1.8.tar.gz 
pnp-patching-<VERSION>.tar.gz <repository_name> 
Save the current ADE-OS running configuration? (yes/no) [yes]? 
Generating configuration...
Saved the ADE-OS running configuration to startup successfully
Initiating Application Patch installation...
 
   
Patch successfully installed
pnp-server/admin#  

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

Open Caveats

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 you run the pnp setup command, 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 being 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: 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 for 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 message that is displayed on Cisco Prime Infrastructure can be ignored.

Resolved Caveats

CSCui18743

Symptoms: The username and password are clearly displayed in the log files.

Conditions: The Prime Infrastructure username and password are displayed in clear text when the Plug and Play Gateway log files are generated.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

CSCui47481

Symptoms: The Cisco Networking Service(CNS) ports hang.

Conditions: The CNS ports hang when the managed device's interfaces are flapping.

Workaround: There is no workaround.
