HP PCM+ configuration management on 93XX

I've got problems making configuration scan from Procurve Manager+ on a 9308 switch. SNMP rw community is correct, no access list blocking. Error message "Failure: Timeout" in PCM, no errors on the 9308. Any ideas?

Hi,

This could be one of the known issues when the Super User password is different from the Telnet password.

Re: HP PCM+ configuration management on 93XX

I have the same problem here, let me know if you find the problem because it didn't work for me.

Mario,

Have you tried setting the Telnet password and the Super user password to be the same?

Thank's for your input. I'm using local username/password with aaa authentication for login. Username set up with super-user privileges (level 0). Should super-user password be enabled when using local username/password?

Can you post these log files and I can take a look at it for you if you like.

\server\logs\CFG-CfgMgr.log and \server\logs\CFG-DevObjects.log

Sorry about the delay, Mohamed, but I haven't been at the site for a while.
Here's the log file.
There seems to be a mismatch in SNMP community, but this community is verified OK with the discovery wizard.

The logs show that you have the wrong SNMP settings.
To test your SNMP setting try using the Device Manager to change location or contact name and make sure your changes take effect. This way we can isolate the issue.

The discovery wizard uses the read only, whereas the Config Scan needs to do sets.

Hi Mohamed,

we have the same problem with configurations but I can change the Location and Contact stuff over the device manager

Re: HP PCM+ configuration management on 93XX

Try using the CLI Wizard and see if that is working right.

Hi Mohammed,

the CLI commands do not work either ... That's somehow strange, isn't it?!

Re: HP PCM+ configuration management on 93XX

I would make sure your SNMP community names are correct and the telnet password.
Also look make sure that your super user password is the same as your telnet password on that box.

Re: HP PCM+ configuration management on 93XX

@Mohamed
the snmp communities are surely correct but for telnet logins we have aaa established. Could this be the problem?

Thanks

Re: HP PCM+ configuration management on 93XX

This is a known issue that is being addressed, so unfortunately PCM 1.0 does not support that curently.

Thank's for the clarification, Mohamed, I guess this will be implemented in a future release then.
