IMC 7.0 Cisco snmp v3 support for Catalyst 2950 switch

Hello we have recently implmented the above version of IMC into our production environment, HP switches are added rather easily although my qualm is regarding adding a Cisco 2950 switch via snmpv3 that i am using as a test.

 

I have queried the device model's in the portal and the 2950 is not listed which makes me believe that it isn't supported (makes sense it is an old unit) although i thought i would create this post to see if anyone has successfully added the device.

 

Thanks

Re: IMC 7.0 Cisco snmp v3 support for Catalyst 2950 switch

There's two aspects to it:

 

1/ IMC support for 2950. It's a pretty old switch, which actually makes it _more_ likely to be supported. Worst case it will show up as a generic Cisco device. You can add your own model name mapping if needed. IMC will still do fault, performance polling, etc. Will possibly need tweaking for backups, but probably not. 

 

2/ The above support is independent of SNMPv2 vs v3 - it doesn't make any difference from IMC's perspective. I'm not sure if the 2950 supports v3. I seem to recall it didn't support SSH, so I'm not sure if SNMPv3 is supported. If the switch supports SNMPv3, IMC will be able to poll it.
