4208vl & PCM 3 Trial

Hi,

can someone help me to set up the Procurve Manager? We want to test the software. But i cant find any Switches. All switches are configured with snmpv3 and standard users like initial and templateSHA.
Now the PCM Discovery Wizard told me "Communication error, please use the Back button and verify you have enter the correct SNMP V3 credentials"
I checked it several times but they are right entered.

Hello Sebastian,

what is your SNMP Config on the switch? I recommend to use something like this:

snmpv3 enable
snmpv3 only
snmpv3 group ManagerPriv user "admin" sec-model ver3
snmpv3 user "admin" auth sha "5df33e8b1e84df4b92a12223bdfb3e22249f6bc8"
priv des "5df33e8b1e84df4b92a12223bdfb3e22249f6bc8"

What is your firmware on the switch? Also ensure that all Updates installed on the PCM.

Cheers,

Michael Breuer klingt deutsch.
Ich schreib jetzt mal auf deutsch weiter. :-)
Aktuelle Version ist auf dem Switch.
Config sieht wie folgt aus:
snmpv3 enable
snmpv3 only
snmpv3 restricted-access
snmpv3 user "initial"
snmpv3 user "templateSHA"
snmp-server community "public" Unrestricted

Hello Sebastian,

this is an english forum, so we have to keep engish conversation.

The users are not assigned to any group, but this is mandatory. Also authentication password and encryption key is recommended. (see config guide for details)

I recommend follow my posted sample config.

Cheers,
