IMC 7.0 : adding nortel device

IMC 7.0 : adding nortel device

hi, i just update my IMC to 7.0 and when i add my nortel baystack 425 Device i can't backup the config.

 

how can i do that ? the problem occures only on Nortel Devices.

 

with my HP devices there is no problem.

 

P.S. This thread has been moved from  Switches, Hubs, Modems (Legacy ITRC forum) to  IMC. -HP Forum Moderator

Re: IMC 7.0 : adding nortel device

Hi - 

 

Are all the credentials for access to your Nortel device entered into IMC? Telnet/SSH, SNMP, etc.? Have you compiled the MIBs for Nortel device? 

 

Or did you resolve this already? 

 

Kind regards,

Lynn-Marie

Re: IMC 7.0 : adding nortel device

hi, the credentials are all OK but the backup doesn't work

it's seems that IMC can't done a "CTRL-Y" to enter the prompt login & password  (by telnet)

Re: IMC 7.0 : adding nortel device

Years ago I had a customised version of the NortelERS adapter to deal with some of these issues:

https://github.com/NetOpsCommunity/imc-scripts/tree/88e023ef82668575cd355efa8264bf4995fcfee6/adapters/ICC/Nortel%20networks

But my understanding is that it's fixed in later IMC releases, so I removed the code from the master branch.

Re: IMC 7.0 : adding nortel device

to remove the "Ctrl-Y" demand you just have to disable it with this command:     banner disabled

and now when you login into your switch you don't need no more to Ctrl-Y

i added the sysoid:  1.3.6.1.4.1.45.3.71.2

in the adapter-index.xml   file to force the switch with the good adapter.

but same error message.

Re: IMC 7.0 : adding nortel device

After you edited adapter-index.xml, did you restart IMC?

The other thing to look for is the device model/series/vendor - the mapping must match between the name used in the UI, and the folder your adapter is in. Do you have that device configured in IMC with Nortel Networks as the vendor?

Take a look at the database and see what adapter it thinks it should be using for that device. DB query looks like this:

mysql> use config_db;
mysql> select * from tbl_dev_adapter where dev_id=13;

Re: IMC 7.0 : adding nortel device

For the first error "Failed to execute script" - you'll need to look at the logs.

The second error tells you what to do "Login type is SSH and file transfer mode is TFTP/FTP, this is incompatible". Change the file transfer type, or change to Telnet. What methods does that backup adapter support?

Re: IMC 7.0 : adding nortel device

okey but the command line to backup the equipment is:

copy running-config tftp address X.X.X..X  filename

 

and it works in CLI (SSH and Telnet) but not by IMC

Re: IMC 7.0 : adding nortel device

IMC's trying to stop you doing something stupid by mixing secure & insecure modes. SSH is encrypted, TFTP is plaintext.

Four choices:

  1. Write an SCP or SFTP adapter, depending on what that device supports. 
  2. Configure IMC to use SCP or SFTP. It will attempt to back up the device, see that the adapter does not have SCP or SFTP support, and switch to using the CLI adapter.
  3. Change IMC Login Type to use Telnet
  4. Complain that IMC won't let you mix SSH + TFTP,  and accept you can't do backups for that device.

Re: IMC 7.0 : adding nortel device

i don't think so, because IMC use TFTP and SSH connection to backup HP devices.

same thing for JUNIPER devices...

Re: IMC 7.0 : adding nortel device

backup works in SSH,

I just replace "login" by "username" in inialize.tcl

thanks a lot.
