PCM2.0+ - Configuration Scan Policy

Hi everbody,

i have a problem with one Switch (HP 2848).
The PCM cannot scan the configuration.

The PCM has the follwing Event in his log:

Event Description
Device ' ()' scan failed. Reason = Timeout

I cannot explain why the PCM got a timeout. The Communication Setting are right. The PCM discovered this switch successfully.

I hope somebody can help me.

Kind Regards

Re: PCM2.0+ - Configuration Scan Policy

HI,

I had the same problem, It turned out that in the SNMP settings i had configured the community strings as 'Operator unrestricted' and not 'Manager Unrestricted'

e.g
switch(Config)# snmp-server STRING manager unrestricted.

Cheers

Hi!

You're right - I changed the snmp-server community entry to "Manager unrestricted" now and now it works.

I had overseen that there is a wron entry.

Thanx for help.

Kind Regards
