Viewing Database Status
You can verify that the WLSE database is running using the CLI command, show process. After you enter the command, verify whether the db2sync process is listed, which indicates the database is running.
Display of Device Names in WLSE
Many WLSE displays include a field for the device name. If reverse DNS lookup is enabled on the WLSE, and the name is configured on the DNS server, the DNS name is displayed in this field. If the DNS name is not available, the sysname SNMP variable is displayed instead. If neither the DNS name nor the sysname is available, the device's IP address is displayed. Therefore, the order of preference is:
1. DNS name
3. IP address
This affects displays in Reports, Faults, and Administration. In some displays, both a name and an IP address are displayed. Also, in some displays there are separate fields for the DNS name, sysName, and IP address.
To enable reverse DNS lookup, select Administration > Discover > Device Credentials, then select Use reverse DNS lookup.
Known problems (bugs) in WLSE are graded according to severity level. These release notes contain descriptions of:
•All severity level 1 or 2 bugs.
•Significant severity level 3 bugs.

Technical Assistance Center
The Cisco TAC is available to all customers who need technical assistance with a Cisco product, technology, or solution. Two types of support are available through the Cisco TAC: the Cisco TAC Web Site and the Cisco TAC Escalation Center.
Inquiries to Cisco TAC are categorized according to the urgency of the issue:
•Priority level 4 (P4)—You need information or assistance concerning Cisco product capabilities, product installation, or basic product configuration.
•Priority level 3 (P3)—Your network performance is degraded. Network functionality is noticeably impaired, but most business operations continue.
•Priority level 2 (P2)—Your production network is severely degraded, affecting significant aspects of business operations. No workaround is available.
•Priority level 1 (P1)—Your production network is down, and a critical impact to business operations will occur if service is not restored quickly. No workaround is available.
Which Cisco TAC resource you choose is based on the priority of the problem and the conditions of service contracts, when applicable.
Cisco TAC Web Site
The Cisco TAC Web Site allows you to resolve P3 and P4 issues yourself, saving both cost and time. The site provides around-the-clock access to online tools, knowledge bases, and software. To access the Cisco TAC Web Site, go to the following URL:
All customers, partners, and resellers who have a valid Cisco services contract have complete access to the technical support resources on the Cisco TAC Web Site. The Cisco TAC Web Site requires a Cisco.com login ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a login ID or password, go to the following URL to register:
If you cannot resolve your technical issues by using the Cisco TAC Web Site, and you are a Cisco.com registered user, you can open a case online by using the TAC Case Open tool at the following URL:
If you have Internet access, it is recommended that you open P3 and P4 cases through the Cisco TAC Web Site.
Cisco TAC Escalation Center
The Cisco TAC Escalation Center addresses issues that are classified as priority level 1 or priority level 2; these classifications are assigned when severe network degradation significantly impacts business operations. When you contact the TAC Escalation Center with a P1 or P2 problem, a Cisco TAC engineer will automatically open a case.
To obtain a directory of toll-free Cisco TAC telephone numbers for your country, go to the following URL:
Before calling, please check with your network operations center to determine the level of Cisco support services to which your company is entitled; for example, SMARTnet, SMARTnet Onsite, or Network Supported Accounts (NSA). In addition, please have available your service agreement number and your product serial number.
