Issue backing up Nexus 5000

Hi all,

 

I'm implementing Cattools for a client to show the value in it (so they'll buy it).

I can't get it to log into their Nexus 5010 switches (2).

No matter what i do, the authentication ALWAYS fails, however i can log into the switches using putty with the same cred's.

Any ideas? Here are some debug's:

  • Just upgraded from 5.0.3 to n5000-uk9.5.1.3.N2.1.bin and ran into this same problem. (Cattools v3.7.0). The "Login as:" workaround above did the trick.

    Specifically:

    • Device Information -> Passwords:
      • SSH Username: <<has one>>
      • SSH Password: <<has one>>
      • SNMP Read Community: <<has one>>
      • NO CHECKBOXES CHECKED.
    • Device Information -> Prompts
      • Username prompt: Login as:

    No Variation required.

    Thanks for the tip! Hopefully the additional info below can be used for a fix from Solarwinds.

    Its logging in, gets the Enable prompt, and then tries to do the AAA username and password - even though I don't have them defined AND the checkbox for AAA login is empty.
