Navigating Cisco Prime Common Services Tasks in LMS 4.2

CiscoPrime Common Services (CS) provides the application infrastructure for all existing CiscoWorks network management solutions for them to share a common model for data storage, user login, user role definitions, user access privileges, and security protocols.

This chapter provides the mapping of CS tasks in LMS 4.2.

It explains:

• Server Tasks

• Software Center Tasks

• Device and Credential Tasks

• Group Administration Tasks

Server TasksThis section provides information on the Common Services Server tasks in LMS 4.2.

• Security Tasks

• Report Tasks

• Admin Tasks

Table 2-1 Server Tasks

LMS 3.2 Task Name LMS 3.2 Navigation LMS 4.2 Navigation Description

Security Tasks

Setting up browser security mode

CiscoWorks LMS Portal > Common Services > Server > Security > Single Server Name > Browser-Server Security Mode Setup

Admin > Trust Management:Local Server > Browser-Server Security Mode Setup

Common Services provides secure access between the client browser and management server. It does this using SSL (Secure Socket Layer). SSL encrypts the transmission channel between the client, and server.

Chapter 2 Navigating Cisco Prime Common Services Tasks in LMS 4.2 Server Tasks

Setting up local user policy

CiscoWorks LMS Portal > Common Services > Server > Security > Single Server Name > Local User Policy Setup

Admin > System: User Management > Local User Policy Setup

You can setup username and password policies for CiscoWorks local users in Common Services. With the new local user policy, you can:

1. Start the local username with a number

2. Include special characters in local username

3. Specify the length of local username

4. Specify the length of local user password

You can add and delete users, edit user profiles and modify the logged in user credentials

Setting up security certificate

CiscoWorks LMS Portal > Common Services > Server > Security > Single Server Name > Certificate Setup

Admin > Trust Management:Local Server > Certificate Setup

CiscoWorks allows you to create security certificates that enable SSL communication between your client browser and management server. Self signed certificates are valid for five years from the date of creation. When the certificate expires, the browser prompts you to install the certificate again from the server where you have installed CiscoWorks

Setting up Peer Server Accounts

CiscoWorks LMS Portal > Common Services > Server > Security > Multi-Server Trust Management > Peer Server Account Setup

Admin > Trust Management:Multi Server > Peer Server Account Setup

Peer Server Account Setup helps you create users who can programmatically login to CiscoWorks Servers and perform certain tasks. These users should be set up to enable communication among multiple CiscoWorks Servers. Users created using Peer Server Account Setup can authenticate processes running on remote CiscoWorks Servers.

Chapter 2 Navigating Cisco Prime Common Services Tasks in LMS 4.2 Server Tasks

Setting up System Identity Setup

CiscoWorks LMS Portal > Common Services > Server > Security > Multi-Server Trust Management > System Identity Setup

Admin > Trust Management:Multi Server > System Identity Setup

Communication between multiple CiscoWorks Servers is enabled by a trust model addressed by certificates and shared secrets. System Identity setup helps you to create a "trust" user on servers that are part of a multi-server setup. This user enables communication among servers that are part of a domain. There can only be one System Identity User for each machine.

Setting up Peer Server Certificate Setup

CiscoWorks LMS Portal > Common Services > Server > Security > Multi-Server Trust Management > Peer Server Certificate Setup

Admin > Trust Management:Multi Server > Peer Server Certificate Setup

You can add the certificate of another CiscoWorks Server into its trusted store. This will allow a CiscoWorks Server to communicate with another using SSL. If a CiscoWorks Server needs to communicate with another CiscoWorks Server, it must possess the certificate of the other server. You can add certificates of any number of peer CiscoWorks Servers to the trusted store. You can add, delete and view the details of the client certificates.

Setting up Single Sign-On Setup

CiscoWorks LMS Portal > Common Services > Server > Security > Multi-Server Trust Management > Single Sign-On Setup

Admin > Trust Management:Multi Server > Single Sign-On Setup

With Single Sign-On (SSO), you can use your browser session to transparently navigate to multiple CiscoWorks Servers without authenticating to each of them. Communication among multiple CiscoWorks Servers is enabled by a trust model addressed by Certificates and shared secrets.

Chapter 2 Navigating Cisco Prime Common Services Tasks in LMS 4.2 Server Tasks

Setting up AAA Mode Setup

CiscoWorks LMS Portal > Common Services > Server > Security > AAA Mode Setup

Admin > System: Authentication Mode Setup

The CiscoWorks Server provides mechanisms used to authenticate users for CiscoWorks applications. CiscoWorks login modules allow administrators to add new users using a source of authentication other than the native CiscoWorks Server mechanism (that is, the CiscoWorks Local login module).

Set up Cisco.com User Account

CiscoWorks LMS Portal > Common Services > Server > Security > Cisco.com Connection Management > Cisco.com User Account Setup

Admin > System: Cisco.com Settings > User Account Setup

VLAN Configuration

CiscoWorks LMS Portal > Campus Manager > Configuration > VLAN Configuration

Configuration > Workflows:VLAN > Configure VLAN

A Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) allows you to create logical broadcast domains that can span across a single switch or multiple switches, regardless of physical positioning. A VLAN contains a group of devices on one or more LANs.

You can create amd delete VLANs using VLAN Configuration wizard.

Creating VLANs CiscoWorks LMS Portal > Campus Manager > Configuration > VLAN Configuration > Create

Configuration > Workflows:VLAN > Configure VLAN

Allows you to create a VLAN by selecting devices or entities to be included in the VLAN. Domain Selector helps you to select devices in Switch Clouds and VTP Domains.

Creating PVLANs CiscoWorks LMS Portal > Campus Manager > Configuration > PVLAN Configuration > Create PVLAN

Configuration > Workflows: VLAN > Create Private LAN

A Private VLAN (PVLAN) is a VLAN that isolates devices at Layer 2 (L2), from other ports within the same broadcast domain or subnet. PVLAN segregates traffic at L2 and converts a broadcast segment into a non-broadcast multi-access segment.

To create a Private VLAN, you must designate one VLAN as primary and another as either isolated, community, or two-way community VLAN. Then, you can assign additional VLANs as secondary VLANs.

After creating primary and secondary VLANs you must associate the secondary VLANs to the respective primary VLANs.

Deleting PVLAN CiscoWorks LMS Portal > Campus Manager > Configuration > PVLAN Configuration > Delete PVLAN

Configuration > Workflows: VLAN > Delete Private LAN

• System defined groups, for example Access Port Groups, Interface Groups and Trunk Port Groups and their own sub groups.

Setting Priorities CiscoWorks LMS Portal > Device Fault Manager > Configuration > Polling and Thresholds > Setting Priorities

Monitor > Fault Settings: Setup > Priority Settings

System-defined groups have a higher priority than customizable groups, but you can change the priorities as needed. This is helpful, for example, when you configure specific customizable groups of interest and want to give them the highest priority.

Applying Changes CiscoWorks LMS Portal > Device Fault Manager > Configuration > Polling and Threshold > Apply Changes

Monitor > Fault Settings: Setup > Apply Changes

Changes to polling parameters, setting priorities and threshold values do not take effect until you apply changes, thereby reconfiguring LMS to use the new values. Similarly, after you resume devices or device components that were suspended from polling, you must apply changes for the device elements to be polled.

Your login determines whether you can perform this operation.

LMS 3.2 Task Name LMS 3.2 Navigation Description

Device Management task

Viewing Conflicting Device Types

CiscoWorks LMS Portal > RME > Devices > Device Management > Conflicting Device Types

The Conflicting device state occurs if the sysObjectID in the device and that in the Device and Credential Repository do not match.

Viewing Normal Devices

CiscoWorks LMS Portal > RME > Devices > Device Management > Normal Devices

Normal devices are devices that have been successfully contacted by LMS, or the device has contacted LMS at least once (polling, successful job completion, Syslog receipt). This indicates that this was a real device in the network (at one point in time).

This state does not guarantee that you have had a successful Inventory and Configuration Collection.

Viewing Pending Devices

CiscoWorks LMS Portal > RME > Devices > Device Management > Pending Devices

When the device is added to LMS, device management moves the device into this state, and invokes all the registered application tasks such as Inventory Collection and Configuration collection.

Based on the results of the tasks, the device moves to one of these states—Pre-deployed, Normal or Aliased.

The Pending state is a transient state and no device will be in this state for any significant time. If the devices are in this state for a longer time, you can suspend the devices and resubmit for managing.

Working with pre-deployed devices

CiscoWorks LMS Portal > RME > Devices > Device Management > Pre-deployed Devices

In the Pre-deployed device state, the device has never been contacted by LMS through protocols such as SNMP, Telnet, or SSH.

If LMS contacts the device through tasks such as Inventory polling, Configuration polling, and receiving syslog messages, the device moves to a Normal state.

Reports Task

Setting the Reports Archive Default Directory

CiscoWorks LMS Portal > RME > Admin > Reports > Archive Settings

You can change the default directory location for reports archival on the LMS server.

Software Mgmt Task

Updating upgrade information

CiscoWorks LMS Portal > RME > Admin > Software Mgmt > Update Upgrade Information

For IPX/IGX/BPX/MGX devices, both the Cisco.com Upgrade Analysis and the Repository Upgrade Analysis options use the upgrade knowledge base to make upgrade recommendations.
