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.

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

same thing for JUNIPER devices...

backup works in SSH,

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

thanks a lot.
