Re: BNA 14.0

Is SNMP configured on the device you are trying to discover? Have you configured the same credentials in BNA? Have you tried testing SNMP with snmpwalk?

Hi Lindsay

 

I am new to this SNMP stuff.

 

Can you guide me how i can check the SNMP config on the switches and BNA ? If possible correct procedure / set of commands will be very helpful .

Re: BNA 14.0

What sort of switches do you have? The specific configuration will depend on the devices you're using - e.g. configuring a VDX is quite different to configuring an FC switch.

 

You can test that SNMP is working from a client system. If you're using Windows, then use something like this: https://www.paessler.com/tools/snmptester

 

OS X ships with snmpwalk by default, and Linux OSes have that available as a package.
