App Activation error: Device association is missing with a USB device.

Hello,

I get this error while trying to activate a docker app on iox. The app basically tries to communicate to the serial USB device connected to the router. I followed the instructions from https://developer.cisco.com/docs/iox/#!sample/universal-serial-bus-usb-usage-in-the-app

info about my setup:

os version: 1.6.3


<<<<<< package.yaml file >>>>>


app:

  cpuarch: "x86_64"

  type: docker

  resources:

    profile: c1.large


    network:

      -

        interface-name: eth0


    devices:

      - 

        type: usbdev

        label: HOST_DEV1

        function: serial

        vendorID: "0483"

        productID: "5740"

        mandatory: True

the app ran locally on my PC fine with the following command;

docker run -t -i --device=/dev/ttyACM0 test-app"

could you please let me know what is still missing?

thanks,

Hi Arun,

Please check these related urls

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Geevarghese,

I followed both the links that you pasted and I shared the error along with my configurations and output.

It would be great if you can help me looking at those configuration and output and let me know if there is something missing?

The USB device is also not listed by the localmanager.

thanks,

Arun

Please refer to https://developer.cisco.com/docs/iox/#!usb-device-usage/universal-serial-bus-usb and https://developer.cisco.com/docs/iox/#!sample.

And please note only USB storage and serial devices are supported for Cisco IOx.

Hello Steve,
I followed the link that you have shared.  I've shared my package file and other outputs at the beginning of the thread. 

Yes, I used a lorawan modem that can be enumerated as usb serial device.

I couldn't notice any obvious thing that is wrong in my configuration.

could you please let me know what can make a usb_serial device not to be listed by the localmanager? May be this could help further debugging the issue.

thanks,

I remember I have similar problem to use USB long time ago, don't remember what exactly was the error.

I remember I have to change one or two of following in yaml file, either product id , vendor id or device id or the combination of them.

Just FYI, don't if it helps.

    devices:

      -

        type: usbdev

        label: HOST_DEV

        usage: Needs usb storage device to persist data

        function: storage

        mandatory: True

I use the values of vid, pid of the device from the output of "ioxclient platform device list" and also I'm using the device as serial usb device.

I still see the USB device as undefined in ioxLocalManager.

Have you checked this doc see if the USB is recognized and mounted properly?

Have you tried to activate it from ioxclient ? (with debug)

Highlighted

yes, I tried it with ioxclient and wasn't a successful try.

I will post the logs from debug here, shortly.

 "device-name" - I couldn't find any definition for this field in https://developer.cisco.com/docs/iox/#!usb-device-usage/universal-serial-bus-usb. but it seems to be  a mandatory field because without which I get the following error.
