UCS 62xx and Oncommand Balance

COMITSUPPORT

Regarding the Balance Documentation https://library.netapp.com/ecm/ecm_download_file/ECMP1141808 to configure discoveries for the CISCO switches you have to configure the following items:

Balance has the following Cisco discovery requirements:

In Balance, create credentials for accessing the switch. On the

Add credentials

page:

•    Leave the Login field blank.

•    For the Password field, type the SNMP community name password. Default is

public

. If an

SNMP community name does not exist, use the Cisco management software to create it.

•    For the FQDN/IP Address field, type the switch IP address.

In our case we are not possible to communicate with the switches

Could you please advice?

Thank you

Aggelos

Hello Peter,

We want to configure SNMP to communicate from Balance 4.1.1.0 to UCS 6200 FI-1

The problem is discovery, Error:Auth or Conenct Failure

Not able to establish contact with SNMP agent at 10.50.1.31 using provided community string

Statistics: OK

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

NetApp Knowledgebase - OnCommand Balance: How to manually configure an SNMP community on a Cisco SAN device

NetApp Knowledgebase - How to discover Brocade/Cisco devices using OnCommand Balance

Do you have any similar installation to any customer?

Please advice

Thanks
