Procurve Manager : Nothing in IP authorized manager tab

I have nothing in the IP authorized manager tab
Everything seems to work except that.
I have over 100 Procurve switches with IP authorized configured on every switches.

Does anybody have any clue with this problem ?

One thing to check is make sure that your managment community name's read access does NOT have Operator access. This could be why you are not seeing the Authorized manager list.

Try setting it to Manager and see if that works.

Re: Procurve Manager : Nothing in IP authorized manager tab

Ok I will try it. What is the difference between operator restricted and manager restricted ? Do I have more priviledge read access this way (no write access) ?

Re: Procurve Manager : Nothing in IP authorized manager tab

Basically the Operator/Manager sets the MIB view, so the Operator give you access to all the MIBs except the Config MIB.
The Restricted/Unrestricted is to allow you to write to these MIB views.

So in the case you state you are correct, you have more MIBs to view in Manager Restricted.

Ok thanks for the quick reply, it resolved my problem.

Now, I have to find why I cannot scan the 9304. I have a scan timeout and cannot read the config. If i understood right, PCM telnet the switch with my password. But I think I have to disable the user exec level (need to type enable) so I will go directly to the full exec level where the telnet password is put in.

Actually just make sure that you have entered the correct SNMP passwords in PCM.

To test if you have the correct passwords open up Device Manager and see if you can access and change the settings.

I might have been a little vague in my previous post, what i meant was you needed to set the SNMP Community Names (little key icon).

Re: Procurve Manager : Nothing in IP authorized manager tab

I don't have access to the switch right now, but I am sure I have the correct SNMP name. I can see all the port setting. Is it using telnet when it does a scan or really SNMP ?

I have public for read access and private name for write access set in the PCM device key.

A combination of SNMP and TFTP.
So do you have a firewall between PCM and the 9304 that might be blocking the TFTP traffic?

One thing you can do is try a Config Scan and then look at \PCM\server\logs\CFG-CfgMgr.log go to the end of the file and see what the message reads.

That might give you more info on the issue.
