Cisco Prime LMS disk cleanup

Hi all,
What's the best way to tune cleanup in Cisco Prime LMS 4.2.2?
The following files are growing really large in my setup.
\CSCOpx\log\SyslogCollector.log.1 (60GB)
\CSCOpx\databases\rmeng\SyslogThird.db (30GB)
\CSCOpx\databases\rmeng\SyslogSeccond.db (30GB)
How can I cleanup those files and in the future limit their size?

Create a syslog purge policy. Here is the reference link:

  • Issues with Cisco Prime LMS 4.2.3

    I'm trailing Cisco Prime LMS 4.2.3 Soft appliance on ESXi before I deploy it into a live environment and am having some issues.
    I've upgraded to version 4.2.3 and the box was working fine after the upgrade however on power it up today the Apache service will not start.
    If I look at the LMS application I see this for the Apache service.
    "Apache                Administrator has shut down this server   0 "
    I have tried to starting it.
    CiscoLMS42/admin# application start Apache
    % Application failed to start
    If I run an application operation debug at the same time I get the following output.
    CiscoLMS42/admin# 6 [5343]: application:operation cars_install.c[1145] [admin]: Application initialization initiated for appname: Apache, operation: 0
    7 [5343]: application:operation cars_install.c[1146] [admin]: Operations: O-APP_START, 1-APP_STOP, 2-APP_STATUS
    6 [5343]: application:operation cars_install.c[1150] [admin]: Verifying app (Apache) is installed ...

    3 [5343]: application:operation install_cli.c[281] [admin]: Error while starting application  - Application: Apache ErrorCode: -999
    I'm at a complete lose as to where to look next, failing anything else I'll have to rebuild it, but it would be nice to know how to get the Apache up and running again.

    Hi Richard,
    I see the following:
    [ Thu Apr 18 20:53:11 GMT 2013 ] TomcatMonitor After gettingAJPPort : ajpPort = 9009 and host =CiscoLMS42
    [ Thu Apr 18 20:53:11 GMT 2013 ] TomcatMonitor theMgr constructor successful.

    [ Thu Apr 18 20:53:11 GMT 2013 ] TomcatMonitor Tomcat is not ready, it's coming up Connection refused
    It looks like the hostname cannot be resolved. Can you try to add a static entry in /etc/hosts for the IP of the server and CiscoLMS42?
    Restart the daemon manager and it should work.

  • Cisco Prime LMS appliance Compatibilty with Cisco Prime NCS

    Is it possible if we can install Cisco Prime LMS 4.2 in the appliance which is inbuilt with Cisco Prime  NCS .
    We have PILMS42-1.5K-U license available with us.

    One can install either LMS 4.2 or NCS on the a physical (software on PRIME-NCS-APL-K9 hardware) or virtual appliance (software installed on customer-provided VM).
    The two products (NCS and LMS) cannot coexist on a given appliance instance. This is due to change in the future as LMS and NCS merge under the Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.0 release but for now they are distinct and separate products with a common approach and similar look and feel but requiring separate servers, whether physical or virtual.
    Please refer to the ordering and licensing guide here.

  • Device discovery in Cisco Prime LMS 4.1

    im using CISCO PRIME LMS 4.1 for manage my network, i ran a device discovery job using a ping sweep on the ip ranges of my network, ie, and so on... the discovery found all my devices, but it discovered duplicate devices with illegal ip Addresses, ie
    ip                                    device               S1                    S1                    S1 (the real address)
    all in reachable status.
    i dont undestad why the program adds that repeated illegal addresses.. someone can help me with that issue??
    how can i run the device discovery to avoid this problem?
    Many Thanks.

    Don't let LMS decide on what IP address it will manage the device.
    For example, let LMS do a lookup of the sysname in DNS, then it will use the IP address coming back from the DNS as management IP.
    This is what I do to avoid this.
    But I also feel that LMS should be bright enough to never manage the same device twice. I think Campus DFM or RME will eventually figure out the 2 devices are the same, but they can't "fix" what is wrong in the DCR.

  • VMware Tools on Cisco Prime LMS 4.1

    I have just installed Cisco Prime LMS 4.1 from .ova file on a VMware architecture. My customer wants to know if the server is compatible with vmware tools.
    I looked over Cisco documentation but it is never mentionned.
    Has someone allready take a look into that ?
    Abel JULIAN,
    Nextiraone FRANCE.

    Yes, the datastore is located on a remote SAN so the original source won't be impacted by the loss of the ESXi. But in a perfect world (with VMtools), Vmotion will move VM from one ESX to another in case of failure, performance problem etc.
    Those functions won't be accessible here, and the VM will need to be restarted manually and reaffected to another ESXi in case of failure. Like I said before, the LMS server is not a critical application so that is not a huge issue. The important is to know that Cisco does not support this feature.
    Anyway, I have my answer so it is ok for me, I will notify my customer.
    Thanks you for your time,

  • Cisco Prime LMS Sofware Update

    Hi All
    I had do some software update on my Cisco Prime LMS 4.2 but its seem fail. I also check to the Admin>Software Centre>Event Log its nothing appear. This thing happen after i delete all event log. After that when i do any update its seem fail and there are no event log anymore. I really appreciate if you can advise

    Please share the error you see when you try the software update. Deleting event log will make no effect. Also, please try device update and see if you are able to connect to and see device packages properly?
    With the screenshot of error, share NMSROOT/log/psu.log from windows server or /var/adm/CSCOpx/log/psu.log from unix/lnx machine.

  • Cisco Prime LMS MPLS monitoring

    Hi all, have anyone used Cisco Prime LMS for MPLS xconnect monitoring?
    Currently when these traps arrive to Cisco Prime LMS they are classified as "InformAlarm Unidentified Trap Generic".
    Is it maybe possible to load the correct MIB for these traps and get Cisco Prime LMS to understand them correctly?
    The raw traps looks like this:
    xconnect down:
    09:58:42.352760 IP (tos 0x40, ttl 245, id 12, offset 0, flags [none], proto: UDP (17), length: 114) routerhost.51591 > lmshost.snmptrap: [udp sum ok]  { SNMPv1 { Trap(71)  E:cisco.10.106.2 enterpriseSpecific s=1 424011509 E:cisco. E:cisco. } }
    xconnect up:
    09:59:48.597894 IP (tos 0x40, ttl 245, id 14, offset 0, flags [none], proto: UDP (17), length: 114) routerhost.51591 > lmshost.snmptrap: [udp sum ok]  { SNMPv1 { Trap(71)  E:cisco.10.106.2 enterpriseSpecific s=2 424018144 E:cisco. E:cisco. } }
    I found some more info about the traps at:
    BR /Crille

    Here is an update:
    After discussing with TAC there seems to be 2 possible solutions in LMS right now:
    1. Create a threshold that monitors the specific OID for the xconnect vc and generate alarm if it changes.
    2. Configure the device to send syslog when a xconnect state changes and create an "automated syslog action".
    I have not tried either of them yet so I dont know which one works best, but option 2 seems easiest (its a one time config).

  • NCS & Cisco Prime LMS 4.X

    We have got preinstalled Cisco prime NCS appliance, is ts possible if we can insall Cisco Prime LMS 4.X on the same appliance and upgrade the existing running LMS 3.X which is running on Windows server on the appliance or do we need seperate appliance for cisco prime LMS 4.x.
    Kamal Singh

    I am not sure if I understand you correctly but if you go for a physical appliance, NCS and LMS both needs their own dedicated appliances. Have a look here:
    Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.1 Ordering and Licensing Guide
    that's what is written in section " Ordering Information for New Customers" point 5.:
    5. Purchase the physical appliance if the desired deployment option is a physical appliance rather than a virtual appliance. Both Cisco Prime NCS and Cisco Prime LMS support the physical appliance deployment option. Each product requires its own dedicated physical appliance. Refer to Table 2.

  • SYSLOG Cisco Prime LMS

    Hi friends,
    I have a question about my syslog from Cisco Prime LMS 4.1, the hours from this syslog in the LMS is diferent from my switch log.  I dont kown why.. I verified the hours betewen switch y the Cisco Prime is the same(the LMS is over Windows Server 2008R2) . both are the same log but in diferent hours about 5 hours.
    maybe I have to configure the hours for Syslog in the Cisco Prime.
    Log from Switch
    Log from Cisco Prime LMS

    If you have LMS, i am not sure, but if you have PI 1.2. Take a look at my post.
    Basically, syslog feature doesn't work well. I could see couple of syslog through event / alarm, but syslog itself is not working properly.

  • Migrating from CiscoWorks LMS 3.1 to Cisco Prime LMS 4.2

    Hi Everyone
    My client was formerly having CiscoWorks LMS 3.1. Recently, they purchased Cisco Prime Infrastructure v1.2, which comes with Cisco Prime LMS 4.2. Can I migrate the database (equipment list, usernames etc.) of the CiscoWorks LMS 3.1 to Cisco Prime LMS 4.2? If yes, how do I do this? Please kindly advice.
    Shown below, were the Part Numbers quoted to the end client.
    LMS 2.x/3.x to Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.2 Major Upgrade
    Prime Infrastructure 1.2 - Lifecycle - 1.5K Device Lic PAK
    Prime Infrastructure LMS 4.2 - 1.5K Device Maj Upg Lic
    Prime Infrastructure 1.2 Base License and Software
    LMS 2.x/3.x to Prime Infrastructure 1.2 Maj Upg 1.5K Device

    Thanks Marvin for your advice. Just one last question, there's a statement in the URL that you've provided
    "Ensure that the passwords, HTTPS port and SMTP server details are same in both LMS 3.2 SP1, LMS 4.0.1 or LMS 4.1 server and LMS 4.2 server with Symantec Veritas implementation, while migrating data from non-HA to HA environment."
    Does this mean my client need to purchase Symantec Veritas, as well?

  • Drawing network topology in Cisco Prime LMS 4.2

    Hi all:
    I installed the Cisco Prime LMS 4.2 and managed to discover the Cisco devices and user devices like my PC stations.
    Then I tried to draw the network topology from this LMS 4.2 and I found the topology under the Configuration and Monitor tab. By clicking to these two tabs, it appears a page of something like below:
    Topology Services
    You can use Topology Services to:
    - View detailed xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    - Display the physical and logical services in your network
    - xxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    - xxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    - xxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    - xxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    - xxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    There is no action click on this page and it looks like an explanation page and cannot do anything.
    May I know how to draw the networl topology by this Cisco Prime LMS 4.2?
    Hope to hear the answer from anyone know about this soon. Many thanks!
    Warmest regards,

    Hi Mantej:
    Thanks to your link and I have downloaded the Prime LMS 4.2 document.
    I then read and installed the JRE first in 64 bits because my Windows OS is 64bits but it still prompts out the Java installation screen. I then installed the JRE in 32 bits.
    After that, it has no more Java installation screen. It then request for downloading file at the Windows top bar. I follow the request to riight click to allow the downloading. The Java running and downlaod the file.
    After that, I cannot see any difference. Meaning I still cannot access anything for Toplology Services to draw my network topology diagram.
    May I know what should be happen and what is the next step to do the topology drawing?
    Many thanks!

  • Changing server for Cisco Prime LMS 4.2 installation

    I am planning to install Cisco Prime LMS 4.2 with 50 device license on a temporary server. My question is:
    Can we install Cisco Prime LMS 4.2 on Server A, applied the license for 50 devices, and then several months later we uninstall LMS on Server A, reinstall it on Server B, and applied the same license for 50 users?
    Is it possible and legal to do that? I am worry if the LMS license is binding to the first server's MAC address.
    Thanks in advance.

    also :vmversion 4.1 and 5.1 both checked, hdd 256, scsi , memory 8 gig,

  • Cisco Prime LMS 4.1, "License Server/Daemon Manager is down."

    We having problem with Cisco Prime LMS running version 4.1.
    When open Home page shows the next message: "License Server/Daemon Manager is down. Please check license.log for more information." (see attached)
    The daemon server is stopped already and i can't restart it, see below:
    C:\>net start crmdmgtd
    The Cisco Prime Daemon Manager service is starting.
    The Cisco Prime Daemon Manager service could not be started.
    The service did not report an error.
    More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 3534.

    It looks like you're seeing CSCte49301.  Follow the release note steps to solve this:
    The EssentialsDM daemon hangs in a Waiting to initialize state (as seen in the output of the pdshow command).  Additionally, one might see "Error connecting to JRM" in Resource Manager Essentials applications.
    This occurs on Windows servers after the patch for KB968930 is installed, and only if the Windows Remote Management service was started prior to starting CiscoWorks Daemon Manager. 
    Shutdown CiscoWorks Daemon Manager with the following command from the server's command prompt:
    net stop crmdmgtd
    Delete the following two files:
    Restart CiscoWorks Daemon Manager with the following command:
    net start crmdmgtd
    If that does not work, then the Windows Remote Management service must be stopped, and disabled.  Then, CiscoWorks Daemon Manager must be restarted.
