I encounter 2 seriously annoying problems with the new CiscoPrime LMS 4.1 running the SOFT APPLIANCE (Virtual Appliance on ESX).
I have patched all the device updates I can, with a direct ASDL connection.
Then, I configured the Proxy Settings into :
Admin > System > Cisco.com settings > Proxy Server Setup
ip : x.x.x.x
port : 8080
NO CREDENTIALS are needed for CiscoPrime server. A rules has been added to bypass Proxy authentication for the CiscoPrime server.
When I'm trying to perform a device update, and when I specify my Cisco.com username in the process (after having chosen Source Location : from Cisco.com), I do "next" and I receive an error message : "Invalid Proxy configuration. Please provice valid Proxy credentials. Also ensure valid Proxy Server and Proxy Port are configured in Admin > System > Cisco.com Settings > Proxy Server Setup."
A second problem, related to TAC Service Requests Embedded system. When I specify my login/password from Cisco (CCO account, the one I'm currently using to write this message), in the below bar, I receive an error message :
"You entered an invalid username or password. Please try again. If you just reset your password, our systems may be updating your information. Please try again later.".
Some of you encountered the same problem ?
I don't think this bug applies to 4.1
If you get the error you have then the proxy does ask for credentails after all.
You may want to try running a packet capture when you do a package update to see what happens.
