Fabric manager not able to manage new 9124e switches

Post by Guest » Mon Jul 06, 2009 3:43 am

Fabric manager not able to manage new 9124e switches. It is able to discover fabric using seed switches 9513 but all 9124e appear with Timeout (server,client) error. logs show that communication times out. Even if I try to select the switch and "reauthenticate", it throws timeout error. I have added FM servers IP in SNMP configuration of host using following. snmp-server host <IP> traps version 2c public both are running 4.2.3 code. I am able to connect to the switches using SSH from the FM server and there is no firewall in between either. Any pointers?

Hello Blue Yonder, Since the switches are new it might be that they are shipping with new OUIs which certain versions of FabricManager don recognize.  A simple upgrade of FM will fix this issue. More details can be found here: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/ts/fn/633/fn63302.html HTH,Kris
