Any other Cisco geeks out there?

    I know this is UO tech, but I figured I would put this out there more as a puzzler than as a request for help.

    I have a Cisco 6500 enterprise switch that I recently upgraded IOS on from a 3 year old version to the latest (if you want I will post the exact versions)

    Now, the CiscoView device manager will not load on the switch. I do all my work at the command line, but it is nice to have a graphical view to show to the end user. The CVDM runs resident on the switch, which has a built in apache web server. CVDM is a java application, and I have done all the usual java troubleshooting (tried different versions, and different machines).

    I get a java.null.lang.exception as soon as the CVDM attempts to enumerate the feature set of the new IOS. Cisco wont help me, as the CVDM is end-of-life (YAY Cisco) and they want me to move to a very expensive piece of monitoring software, which I dont need.


    Ideas?

    I just want to say, I feel your pain when Cisco claims items as end of life. Their equipment would and should last way past their expiration.
    They say progress. *grumbles*

    May as well be as well be client-dependant. Did you try to open it from a different (older) client?
    I had a similar issue with a Pix (many) years ago, when I realized it worked better with an older version of JVM.

    Downgrade, then write the newer version number on a post-it. Tell people they can't use the CVDM without first attaching the paper security dongle to their monitor.

    ...No, no actual help. Sorry.
