When I click "check for udpates" I immediately get an error saying
"There was a problem connecting to cisco.com from the Prime Infrastructure Server. Alternatively you can go here, enter 'Prime Infrastructure' for the product name, and click on Find button. Download the latest update file and upload it to your server using the 'Upload Update File' button. Make sure the selected update is greater than your Prime Infrastructure instance version.
Prime Infrastructure Version: 2.0.10"
Anyone else get this?
I can ping cisco.com from the server itself so it has connectivity.
Ugh - it looks like it may be broken again - something similar to this happened about a year ago with the LMS update process. I just checked two different PI 2.0 installations in completely separate networks and am getting the same error.
I know Cisco has been reconfiguring the back end filesystems of a lot of the cisco.com sites - I'd be willing to bet that the site URL hard-coded into PI 2.0 when you click that button has been moved.
I suggest you open a TAC case to alert them of it. When it happened before they were about a month fixing the problem.
I would say it has been over a month now since I first started noticing the error. The last update I did when it worked was mid december. I don't have support on my PI install. Are you able to open a case?
The bug I mentioned above shows status of Fixed in BugSearch tool but the download link they provide isn't right. The PI 2.0 patch location doesn't show any new updates.
So for now you'll have to continue manual download.
I found out it's a confirmed bug:
Unable to connect to cisco.com for software update from PI 2.0
The workaround for now is the manual process. That is, download the update file(s) from cisco.com to your local PC. Here's the link to the device updates and patches:
Then, in PI, go to Administration > Software Update and choose the "Upload Update File" button. That should lead you to the screen shown below (click to enlarge). After it uploads, select the file and click the Install button.
I am trying to upload the 2.1.2 patch using the manual upload option. I click the browse button to select the 2.1.2 ubf file from my local machine, but when I click OK to upload the file, I get an error message that says "No file has been selected." Any ideas why this doesn't work? We are not using a proxy server in our environment.
