I m trying to integrate my powerconnect 8164F to onm5.1.2
I can use ssh or web browser to access to the switch
When i try to discover it through ssh i got the following messages
here is my config
username "root" password d099d6579632d7cb200fd5952c2e22e3 privilege 15 encrypted
username "manager" password f9901d343224d3692d3a129cd7dac1e4 privilege 1 encrypted
ip ssh server
ip ssh pubkey-auth
ip ssh protocol 2
enable password d099d6579632d7cb200fd5952c2e22e3 encrypted
In the configuration for authentification i put
user id : manager
enable id : root
and the password for both
but it doesn't work
is there a way to debug this problem?
What firmware is the switch on?
Managed devices can only be discovered once. So it may have already been discovered, we just need to update the list. The state of previously discovered devices can be updated by selecting Action - Resync from the Equipment Inventory.
The device may also be listed as Discovered Entities, rather than specific vendors' devices. This can mean the following:
• The equipment's driver not installed
• The driver installed but not seeded to database
• Monitored devices must be configured to connect and send SNMP traps to the element management system.
Something else to check out is the SNMP community string. The SNMP community strings public for read-only and private for read-write are included as default authentications, but may not match those on the equipment being discovered. If that occurs, discovery fails. Devices unreachable using the selected SNMP authentication credential appear listed in the Current License Doesn't Support Following Devices section of the discovery results.
It looks like the switch has an enable password, I would double check and make sure the OMNM software has the enable password entered as well.
well the firmware is 126.96.36.199.
I don't understand why you re are talking about snmp?
i was testing discovering through ssh
my switches has an enable password but where can i find the enable id?
Sorry about the SNMP thing. The Enable ID looks like it should be su according to this part of the user guide.
"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."
We should try that out and see if makes any difference. Can you grab me the output of show authentication methods? ill keep looking into this some more.
Ok, got some more information. The enable ID we can leave blank, then enter the enable password. User ID needs to be your privilege level 15 user, root. Then also make sure the rsa and dsa keys are generated.
console(config)#crypto key generate rsa
console(config)#crypto key generate dsa
Then try the discovery again.
The user ID and the enable ID for the Dell 81xx switch are in essence the same. If you have set a login ID (for telnet/ssh into the switch), then the enable ID is already set to the same automatically (other switches sometimes require a separate enable ID). The IDs are the same, but the passwords can be different for the User prompt vs. Enable prompt. The enable password is only needed in OMNM if you have activated it on the switch (which is required for most OMNM management). If you have, then enter both the user ID and enable ID with the same ID used when you login to the switch from telnet/ssh, but set both (different) passwords to access the corresponding CLI prompts.
If you didn't set an enable password on the switch, then you can use the telnet/ssh login password for both the user password and the enable password in OMNM, just to be safe, though only the user password should be required.
Rediscover the device, making sure you are using SSH and not telnet authentication. You will also need to authenticate with SNMP as required.
well i have put that in omnm
protocol type sshv2
user id : root
user passwd : root password
enable id : blank
enable password : enable password
here is my config
cnsnetprd001#show authentication methods
Login Authentication Method Lists
defaultList : none
networkList : local
Enable Authentication Method Lists
enableList : enable none
enableNetList : enable
Line Login Method List Enable Method List
------- ----------------- ------------------
Console defaultList enableList
Telnet networkList enableNetList
SSH networkList enableNetList
the enable password is enabled
but i keep getting the following messages when i want to discover the device
Did not Respond to Authentication. Please click here for the list of devices that did not respond. Will attempt to manage these as default devices
