Since several month we are using the Prime version 2.2 and everything went fine. Now I have the problem that I cannot add any new device. The system responses always "The device already exists". But that is not the case.
I already restarted the NCS and I made a NCSCleanup too, but without any success.
The Prime version is as follows:
Wireless Technology Pack Prime Add-Ons 1.0.0 Installed
PI 2.2.1 POODLE Fix Critical Fixes 1.0.0 Installed
PI 2.2.2 Maintenance Release Critical Fixes 1.2.0 Installed
Patch to disable 3DES Critical Fixes 1.0.0 Installed
Prime Infrastructure 2.2 Device Pack 2 Device Support 2.0 Installed
Prime Infrastructure 2.2 Device Pack 3 Device Support 3.0 Installed
Prime Infrastructure 2.2 Device Pack 4 Device Support 4.0 Installed
Prime Infrastructure 2.2 Device Pack 5 Device Support 5.0 Installed
Solved! Go to Solution.
there could some other possible solution available but that need to be checked with the developers after looking at the debug logs. If there is any issue , you can contact TAC to see if there is anothe solution available for the same.
We get a response from the TAC for that problem. There is a bug with the ID:
CSCuu30735 :PI 2.2 - not able to add devices after restoring backup from PI 2.1.
It is a Sev2 bug and a fix is expected
This bug occurs in freh installatiuons too.
New install and rstore a good backup is the only solution at moment >:-o
We had it out with TAC the other day confirmed it was the bug supplied above , they say its there highest priority issue and are working on a fix , something to do with a particular ios imported thats causing it but they cant replicate it yet fully in there labs , literally we have now hit 4 bugs and we haven't even launched it in production and half the features are not working either like compliance reporting , we refused to rebuild it ,no point until we know the exact trigger , we started on a completely fresh build whats to say we wont hit it again.We also rolled back to a backup 6 weeks back and still the same issue so its basically there since we started working , lucky we still have Ciscos other great software tool LMS still running :)
Same Problem here.
I installed Prime Infrastructure 2.2 Device Pack 6 last week but did not reboot until 2 days ago. Some facts for Cisco TAC engineers or developers....
(1) Prime 2.2 was an upgrade from Prime 2.1.
(2) Installed 2.2 Device Pack 6 but did not reboot right away
(3) 20 + new devices were added after install using manual "Add Device" process.
(4) Rebooted the VM 2 days ago. Performed Database cleanup process too.
(5) Today, no new devices were able to be added using following methods.
a. Manual "Add Device" process.
b. "Buld Import" process using .csv file
c. Inventory "Discovery" process with discover settings
Could anyone confirm "Correct Answer" for this issue is really a correct answer? We do not want to rebuild without solid confirmation.
Thanks in advance.
We had the same problem. After we contacted cisco TAC they have found a fix for this problem. They applied the fix on our Prime installation. After they replaced a file and restarted Prime we could add new devices again.
So I would suggest contact cisco TAC for the solution.
I also got the information that the fix is available in the new release which is due in September.
