TMS Automatic Software Upgrade

Have a customer with a new TMS 15.3 installation

He is getting an error when the system is trying to connect and get software upgrades. 

I think this is a credential issue because I can reach cisco.com from the server.

I am not finding where within the configuration I add a CCO credentials for the system to connect.

Where did I miss this?

Thanks

May or may not be related,

May or may not be related, but if the endpoints are running TC6.1 or later (including endpoints running CE software), TMS will not automatically download software for them, see the New Software Download Procedure for TelePresence Endpoints running TC Software.

Regarding the "MCS8010", I don't recognize that name, do you by chance mean "MSE 8000" or one of it's various blades maybe?  In the case infrastructure systems, TMS doesn't automatically download software for them, as those devices are upgraded manually by the user.

The automatic software update

The automatic software update service that TMS uses doesn't require authentication.

What error are you seeing in TMS in regards to the software update service?

What endpoints are you trying to upgrade, and what is their current software versions?

Pat,

Pat,

Here is the log file I think you are looking for.

Appreciate your feedback.

If there is a different log, let me know.

Looks like something is

Looks like something is stopping your TMS from making a connection, someone a few years back had a similar issue, though they didn't post what the issue was.  If you take a look at their thread, tms-automatic-software-update-fails, going by what Mangus mentions, try taking a Wireshark trace from your TMS server.

Also, what endpoints are you trying to upgrade?

Pat, I have SX10''s and SX20

Pat, I have SX10''s and SX20's plus an MCS8010.

Also an EX60 and a C40

Pat,

Pat,

This is probably it.  Will tell the customer to disable this and not worry again.

Thanks for finding this jewel

TMS will often report this

TMS will often report this "Update check failed" message for devices that are Virtual Machines, as part of the upgrade check process queries the MAC address of the device.  With most VMs, the back end Cisco systems do not contain that information, so the update check will fail.

You can fix this by contacting Cisco Global Licensing Operations and they can log a job with Cisco IT to have the back end databases updated with your corrected MAC addresses so the update check no longer fails.

We've had to do this with a number of our Virtualised devices (ie VCS).
