We have Cisco Prime LMS 4.2 Soft Appliance and we are looking for more detail about file:
The main reason why we would like to know it is that we started with migration from LMS 3.2.1 to LMS 4.2. The new LMS performed command “debug ip scp” in all devices. But we didn’t configure any job to do it. We try to explain this behavior. We found detail information about configuration changes only in pari.log file (and in TACACS+ ).
Thanks and BR.
Pari was an acquisition Cisco did a while back in the configuration compliance space. We integrated the Pari engine into LMS 4.2 to do the standards config complaince and enhanced PSIRT and EoX reporting features.
The fact that Config Compliance is enabling "deug ip scp" is bug CSCua00740, and it will be fixed in the upcoming LMS 4.2.1 release (should be out this week or next).
This file is really huge on my server. Can I just remove it without any consequence? Will Cisco Prime create the new one.
You should never delete LMS log files. You can configure log rotation in /opt/CSCOpx/objects/logrot or simply shutdown dmgtd and delete the contents of the log file (on UNIX, this can be done with cat /dev/null > pari.log).
I am using windows for LMS.
Could you please confirm following actions to do:
1. shutdown dmgtd - net stop crmdmgtd
2. Delete the contents of the pari.log by replace this file with the new empty file.
3. start dmgtd - net start crmdmgtd
