Cannot backup running configurations in RME 4.3.2, but startup config fine

Platform: LMS 3.2.1 with RME 4.3.2 on Windows 2003

I'm having a problem with several devices that were backing up fine until this week - suddenly they aren't backing up their running configurations, but RME is fetching their startup configurations fine and VTP backups are fine.

At first I thought it might be timeouts, so I used inline edit to incease the telnet timeout for a device to 180s. However, the job fails well within this time period (debug shows on i/o error?).

My order of protocols is SSH, Telnet, TFTP.

I took a stab in the dark that this suggested a database problem so I picked one at random and deleted it from DCR, and readded it and it worked. However, for the other 48 devices affected it did not.

I'm wondering if I need to do anything to the RME database to get things back to where they were? Do I need to reinitialize the RME database, and if I do that what do I lose?

Some relevant debug information for the interesting thread (Thread-517) in an attached file, but here's the summary:

Looks like it's shown here:

Cannot backup running configurations in RME 4.3.2, but startup c

Looks like the telnet/SSH timeout was set very low:

Telnet timeout : 2

Set this to 36 seconds (default) and try a few devices again.  If not, full job log with ArchiveMgmt-ConfigJob debugging will be helpful.

Hi Joel,

thanks for your reply. The telnet timeout was actually set to 180s for that device when the job was run. I came to the conclusion that it wasn't actually telnet timing out (as the job failed in less than 180s), but rather the Java socket, so I edited the NMS_ROOT\objects\cmf\data\cmdsvc.properties file as follows:

#################################################################################################
#            #
#  cmdsvc.properties - This file can be used to change the default timeout and delays in cmdsvc #
#            #
#################################################################################################

# max timeout value for waiting for login prompt from a device(in ms)

#LoginTimeout=2000

# Sets the initial value of the socket timeout while doing login (in ms)

InitialTransportTimeout=5000

# Set the timeout value of the transport.  This usually corresponds to the socket's timeout value.(in ms)

TransportTimeout=45000

# Set the delay to sleep before proceeding.(in ms)

TuneSleepMillis=500

# Set delay after creating socket and before doing any communication.(in ms)

DelayAfterConnect=300

# Set delay between read process (in ms)

#ReadDelay=10

This fixed my issue. Glad this file was introduced in 4.3

regards,

Aaron
