problem after installation Cisco Prime LMS4.2.2



I upgraded Cisco Prime LMS from 4.2.1 to 4.2.2 (on Solaris) but I see instead LMS portal this message:


You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Please, can you advise me?

This error  is often the result of problems with the ssl certificate. Try running the script (instructions here) and checking your server certificate. If that reports problems, you may have to regenerate and install your certificate.

I found in FAQ  part about my problem but i have not directory "support" in opt/CSCOpx/setup/

Q. Why am I getting a 403 forbidden error while trying to access Cisco Prime pages?

A. You should check whether the casuser is assigned with the required local security policies.

If the casuser is not assigned with the required privileges, you should run the resetCasuser utility again. Enter the following commands to run the resetCasuser utility:

NMSROOT/CSCOpx/setup/support/resetCasuser (On Solaris/Soft Appliance)

NMSROOT\CSCOpx\setup\support\resetCasuser.exe (On Windows)

where NMSROOT refers to the Cisco Prime Installation directory.

The other possible solutions are:

Remove or disable the anti-virus software

Restart Daemon Manager

Uninstall or disable IIS

Log on as a batch job

Disable Cisco Security Agent

Stop the Daemon Manager and check if there are any Apache or Tomcat processes running. If so, kill the stray processes from the Task Manager or stop them from the Services panel.

Ensure that the casuser or administrator has the read permission for the CSCOpx, CSCOpx/MDC/tomcat/webapps/cwhp directories, and their inner directories.

I ran :

# perl

Can't locate in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/perl5/5.8.4/lib/sun4-solaris-64int /usr/perl5/5.8.4/lib /usr/perl5/site_perl/5.8.4/sun4-solaris-64int /usr/perl5/site_perl/5.8.4 /usr/perl5/site_perl /usr/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.4/sun4-solaris-64int /usr/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.4 /usr/perl5/vendor_perl .) at line 24.

Had this exact problem with a fresh install of LMS (everything described above) and finally got a solution through the TAC.

You have to regenerate the LMS certificate. Do the following:

! remove the existing certificates (there may be a couple in the directory)

cd /opt/CSCOpx/MDC/Apache/conf/ssl

rm -rf server*

! stop the application

/etc/init.d/dmgtd stop

! regenerate the certificates

cd /opt/CSCOpx/bin

/opt/CSCOpx/bin/perl /opt/CSCOpx/MDC/Apache/bin/ -disable

/opt/CSCOpx/bin/perl /opt/CSCOpx/MDC/Apache/bin/ -enable

! restart the application

/etc/init.d/dmgtd start

! the restart process takes a while (took around 10mins for me). during the restart there will be a number of files created and removed from the directory below

cd /opt/CSCOpx/objects/dmgt/ready


when the file "dmgt_start_lock" is no longer in this directory, LMS is then accessible for login (end of boot process has been reached)

At this point everything worked and I was able to log in via the web GUI and start setting up LMS.


Perfect!  Worked for me too!

If the complete directory is missing, it prompts to incorrect and incomplete installation. You may want to check the install log, which should be in /temp directory if it states any errors while installation.

Being a fresh installed server, i would recommend to go for a clean installa again, rather to find a fix now and have issues again in future.
