i am using openmanage network manager 5.1 to manage PowerConnect 7048 switches.
i am able to manage/monitor the switches using SNMP without issues.
however when i use telnet/ssh it keeps throwing errors saying "1 did not respond to authentication. please click here for list of devices that did not respond. will attempt to manage these as default devices."
the document however doesnt say what should be written in the enable ID field.
Solved! Go to Solution.
First and simplest thing is to check that SSH/Telnet is configured and enabled on the switch.
Page 228 starts the process of configuring SSH/Telnet
I found this information in regards to the enable ID field.
The following are common prerequisites:
Credentials—WBEM credentials have a role in discovering the device. Your system must have
access to the computer using Administrative only credentials. These are the same credentials
as the user installing WBEM on the device.
Telnet / SSH credentials are necessary for other supported applications.
For full functionality, this WBEM device driver requires administrative (root) access. Many
devices may only allow root logins on a local console.
In such cases, configure the Telnet/SSH authentication for these devices to login as a nonroot
user—and, in Authentication Manager, enter su in the Enable User ID field and enter
the root user’s password in Enable User Password in that same authentication. This enables
full device management functionality with root access.
It is always a good idea to keep the firmware up to date, the most recent is 22.214.171.124. Help ensure compatibility with the newest release of management software.
Keep us updated.
thanks for ur reply
ssh telnet and http are enabled in my switch. as i am able to login using telnet to the switch. i am able to login using http (web console) also!!
show run shows the following output:
username "admin" password 3a9849218988fee7220ac49ad92155dd privilege 15 encrypte

am i missing anything? i still face the same issue when i try to discover my switch using telnet/ssh/http
Was doing some reading, and something we can try is to make an enable password.
The following example defines password "xxxyyyzzz" to control access to user
and privilege levels.
console(config)# enable password xxxyyyzzz
Then try the connection again.
If i want to use telnet/ssh for a PC7048 switch, do i have to club it with SNMP? will just using telnet not work.
I assigned level 15 to a user admin
So do i still have to enter something in the
i am able to telnet into the switch from command prompt and from web browser. but simply cannot make this OMNM work with telnet
I'm having the same problem, what did you change on the SSH configuration of the switch to get this working?
I am in the same situation. PowerConnect 7048 - I can Telnet, SSH and manage via Web interface but no joy on adding it to OpenManage network. Get error..
Did not respond to authentication. I have tried all the PDF's in terms of configuration but no joy. Anyone else have ideas ?
