Troubleshooting the Cisco Configuration Engine Services
To troubleshoot Cisco Configuration Engine Services services, see the following sections:
Cisco Configuration Engine Not Working Properly
Problem: The Cisco Configuration Engine is not working properly.
Possible Cause: This can occur if any of the processes fails.
Solution: Use the Cisco Configuration Engine (CE) Monitor feature to check the status of the processes. The CE Monitor checks the status of a set of processes at a configured time interval and reports the status in the /var/log/CNSCE/ce_monitor/ce_monitor.log file. The CE Monitor exits if any of the processes fails.
To check the status of the processes, follow these steps:
1. Check the status of CE Monitor to determine whether the service is up or down:
* For Linux, enter: /etc/rc.d/init.d/MonitorCE status * For Solaris, enter: /etc/init.d/MonitorCE status
2. Check the /var/log/CNSCE/ce_monitor/ce_monitor.log file to identify which process is down.
3. If a particular process is down, check the process to determine the problem.
XML Request Sent but No Response Received
Problem: An XML request was sent, but you did not get a response.
Solution: To resolve this problem, do the following in any order:
- To monitor events on the bus, use the cns-listen utility.
- For Intelligent Modular Gateway (IMGW) devices, do the following:
* Set the IMGW logging level to verbose.
- Check the following log files under the /var/log/CNSCE/imgw directory:
IMGW-LOG-<hostname> (log file for the IMGW runtime) IMGW-DEVMOD-LOG (log file for debugging the IMGW script)
- For agent-enabled devices, configure cns debug on the router.
