Batch Operation not working on some Switches

Hi,

 

im trying to batch deploy SNMP-Settings to all our switches via

Resource->batch operation->Device Configuration Guide

 

This works fine for most switches, including ProCurve 2610,2810,2620,6200yl

 

But it seems to fail for all Stack Commanders.

As you can see, iMC is sending "c?onfig terminal" instead of "config terminal"

 

Before updating to the most recent patch level, i had a similar error with the line before that.

It was sending "t?erminal width 1920" then...

 

Has anyone noticed this behavior too ?

 

Btw. heres the same Batch Operation on the Stack Member:

Re: Batch Operation not working on some Switches

I would definitely grab the traces and logs, and open a case on this one.  You can enter a ticket online through the my networking portal http://hp.com/networking/mynetworking

 

you could try the commands manually from the command-line (to see if it's the connection or the script) of the IMC server.  Assuming Windows... from cmd change directories to c:\program files\imc\server\bin  then for telnet "telnet <ip address>" or for ssh "plink <ip address>".  Then try the commands manually, maybe the adapter needs to be adjusted in this case to enter the text more slowly which is possible.  You might also try changing login types if possible (switch from telnet to ssh - and configure appropriately) that will use a different adapter script.  Either way, these tasks won't necessarily resolve the problem, just help indicate what might be going on.

 

Of course don't modify or move any of the files in the IMC install directory :)

 

Good Luck.
