This is a new install of LMS 4.2 evaluation. I have a current install of LMS 3.2 which is working. When I run an Add job for our core 6509 in Software Repository using cisco.com on the 3.2 LMS it works normally. When I attempt the same job in LMS 4.2 for the same device the device is not selectable in the left hand window and it has a message that says (This operation requires Containment data in Inventory. Either this is unavailable) Or (Add Image from CCO not supported). Also and probably related is that LMS 4.2 cannot complete an inventory update on the 6509s that we have and does not say why the inventory job collection failed. So far as I can tell the other devices inventory and offer IOS updates correctly. I ran a job to get all device package updates before I ran any of the jobs. The devices all pass credential checks except for HTTP, which is not activated on the devices.
When this happened to you were you getting the "This operation requires Containment data in Inventory" message when you were trying to select the 6509 device? I can't even submit a job to update inventory with my 6500s.
