Hi - I have HP 5900-AF-48XGT-4QSFP+ switch. Not sure if similar enough. But I can back up config OK.

I have telnet set and tested for login.

I have snmp read & write set and tested.

I did a wireshark capture. IMC sent and recieved snmp packets then used TFTP to transfer. No telnet.

TFTP client enabled on switch?  I think it tries TFTP and then telnet if it TFTP fails, so check that.

Could be an easy one. Check what Login Type is set for that device/s.

Go to the device itself under Resource and change Login Type to SSH.
