I installed the SE 9.5.1 in Red Hat 5.5 platform. There are 4 Cisco mds9509 san switch in environment, but only 2 switch has been discovery. How can I do with it?
Thanks in advance.
a few questions:
1) why did you choose to install 9.5.1 and not 9.6.1 ?
2) which method for switch discovery did you use - SMI-S or SNMP ?
3) which firmware version are the switches running ?
Thanks for your kindly help.
1). We haven't SE 9.6.1 license, so instal 9.5.1.
2). We use SNMP to switch discovery.
3). There are four Cisco mds9509 switch in environment. 2 switch can be discovery, which firmware version is 4.2(1a); but 2 switch can not be discovery, which firmware version is 3.3 (5).
Please give me some suggestion. Thank you very much.
Are you sure those are the firmware versions of the switches discovered? The supported firmware versions for that switch are:
Using SMI-S:Required:SAN-OS 3.3(4), 3.3(4a), 3.3(5), 3.3 (5a), 3.3(5b)
Using SNMP:SAN-OS 3.2(3a), 3.3(3), 3.3(4), 3.3(4a), 3.3(5),3.3 (5a), 3.3(5b)
Which settings do you use for Cisco SNMP discovery in Product Health->Advanced?
You might use something like this:
# Cisco SNMP discovery settingsdiscovery.exclude.CiscoSNMPProvider=falsecimom.cisco.useSNMPv3=truecimom.cisco.snmp.authenticationProtocol=MD5cimom.cisco.snmp.privacyProtocol=DES
It is recommended to use the same user/password on all switches in a fabric. It will allow SE to discover whole fabric through one switch.
Can you past results of test discovery here?
BTW, you can use 9.5 license for SE 9.6.1
