I have been going through the documentation for Prime LAN and havent been able to see what I am not doing right.
I can import/discover a device and get the message on the screen that 1 device has been found and imported into DCR.
I cant see the device anywhere in Cisco Prime. To keep things simple, I have put a test device on the same subnet as the VM running Prime LAN.
I had used a version of Ciscoworks several years ago and didnt have this much problem getting it to work.
I have put in a simple snmp v2 ro community name. In Dashboards, Device Status, I can see a 1 under Success in Device Discovery Status. If I click on the 1, I do get a screen that shows me the device that it found. That is the only place that I can see the device.
Simply adding a device manually or running a one time discovery will not automatically activate all of the server functions. You need to setup (or perform a one time job for) inventory collection, configuration archiving, topology data collection etc.
It's all in the admin guide etc. but a g good quick reference to those features and more is in the handy guide "LMS (not just) for Dummies" that Geert Cobeer put together.
Thanks for the document. I must be missing something. I deleted the device that Prime LAN had discovered and reran the discovery process. I was able to rediscover the device. It got a popup that I needed to run a device credential verification job.
That is where I run into the problem. I can assign the credential set I want to be used on the router. I am prompted to run a Device Credentials Verification job/process. When I go to do that process, I cannot see the device that I have discovered to be able to run the job against to verify the credentials.
At this point, this is an isolated system. I have the "test" router that it is initially talking to on the same subnet as the Prime LAN server is on, so that takes care of a router or firewall as being part of the problem. I can ping from the router to Prime LAN and vice versa.
