Ciscoworks LMS 2.5 (CWENT) cannot find any cisco devices

I recently installed ciscoworks. It installed clean no errors. When I perform a discovery to populate the CRS it does not find any of the cisco equipment on the network. I have configured a seed device. I have the correct community strings. I allow for jumping routers. When I check the discovery logs they state that the routers and switches are attempting to use snmp version one. I is my understanding that IOS 12.1 and above use both v1 and v2 at the same time. Is there a way to turn off snmp v1? Below is a portion of the discovery.log.
Thank you.

Perhaps this FAQ will help

Your logs appear that it does, in fact, recognize all of those devices.

Are you using local authentication for CiscoWorks, or TACACS, Radius etc.?
Do you have anything appearing in the layer 2 topology map?

WGhen

rvonhornAuthor Commented:
Local authentication. The 10.0.0.250 is a core switch so it finds some of the addresses it has, but it cannot get to the other routers and switches. The report states that they are unreachable. In the topology in VTP Domains it shows all the ports in the switch. Under campusworks-all devices and rme alldevices it only shows the core switch.

These are Cisco routers and switches with CDP enabled?  Your routing works fine otherwise?  Your able to ping these various devices from each other?  Your CiscoWorks is able to ping them?
Under Campus Manager/Administration/SNMP Settings there is a choice of SNMP v2 and V3.  Nothing about V1.

What are you using for your timeout and retry values for SNMP

WGhen

rvonhornAuthor Commented:
Yes, all are cisco routers and switches and CDP is enabled. The routing is working as all the offices show up on SolarWinds and What'sUP. I can ping and telnet to all the devices. Ciscoworks is not able to ping them. Ciscoworks is configured for snmp v 2c. Timeouts 6, reties 3.
0
 
WGhenCommented:
OK, when you say CiscoWorks can't ping them do mean from the CiscoWorks app?  Or can you not ping from a DOS box on the CiscoWorks server as well?  You can open a browser on the CiscoWorks server and reach the internet, right?

Also, on Campus Manager/Administration there is a a field marked Campus Data Collection.  Has that ever run?


In your data collection filters, VTP domain? or IP address?
Have you tried using multiple seed devices?  BTW, switches make better seed devices than routers.

Campus data collection is for settings. I have attempted to collect the data from campus manager, admin, start device discovery. Am I missing something in campus data collection?

Yes, I have run start campus discovery from campus manager, admin, start campus data collection.

WGhenCommented:
Some of the things I mentioned above, might be important.  Are you collecting by IP address?  This is a setting in the Data Collection Filters area.

WGhenCommented:
OK,
Then I suggest as a test...

1.   Manage devices by IP address
2.   In Data collection Filters set it for 10.0.[0-4].* (just for now to keep it simple)

This way we can see if it better discovers devices in that limited range by IP

I changed the Campus Data Collection from VTP to IP.
I entered 10.0.0.*, 10.0.1.*, 10.0.2.*, 10.0.3.* and 10.0.4.* and I get the same results.

Have you tried a different or multiple seed devices?  I'm running out of ideas.  I am looking at our working version of LMS 2.5

rvonhornAuthor Commented:
Yes I have tried seeding with four or five edge routers connected to the frame cloud. I still get the same results. We are running multiple VLANs and they are all in our core switch. Could this be creating a problem?
0
 
WGhenCommented:
No. I don't think multiple vlans is the problem as long as they can route between them OK.  But switches make better seed devices than routers, tho I think either is OK.
You didn't change the IP address of the server after you built it or anything like that, did you?

WGhen
0
 
rvonhornAuthor Commented:
No, the server Ip is the same as when it was built. The VLANs are functioning properly.

Hi...
I hoped you have you solved your issue.  I don't think I helped you much.

thanks,
