Hello Peter,

We want to configure SNMP to communicate from Balance to UCS 6200 FI-1

The problem is discovery, Error:Auth or Conenct Failure

Not able to establish contact with SNMP agent at using provided community string

Statistics: OK

We tried also the links below but we’ve got the same results

Do you have any similar installation to any customer?

Please advice
