Issue/Introduction



How can I use REST API to start an NCM capture on demand?
When I try to run the command as:
http://<server>:<port>/spectrum/restful/action/0x821001?mh=<model_handle>

The result that I get back is:
Internal Error: Must add unpack for type com.aprisma.spectrum.app.util.common.CsModelHandle

 

Environment

Spectrum 10.2.x
Spectrum 10.1.x

REST API

Resolution

The error message is benign and can be safely ignored. The device capture should have run and if successful, your NCM captures or verified time should be updated.
The cause of the error message is because we get the response attribute type other than OctetString/Counter/String/Integer.
This error message has been removed with patch 10.02.03.D441 which requires 10.2.3 with BMP 301 to be installed as a prerequisite.
This problem is scheduled to be fixed in Spectrum 10.3.1.
