Overview

The following error occurs when attempting to download configs from HP ProCurve 3500 switches using NCM even when credentials used are correct:

Bad Password

Environment

  • NCM 7.3.2
  • Device: HP J4865A ProCurve Switch 4108G/3500 (1.3.6.1.4.1.11.2.3.7.11.23)

Cause 

This occurs when the device template is incorrect.

 

Resolution

  1. Depending on the version of NCM you are using, follow the relevant steps to add a template. For instructions, refer to the NCM Administrator Guide.
  2. Use the following lines as the actual content of the template:

<!--SolarWinds Network Management Tools-->

<Configuration-Management Device="HP J4865A ProCurve Switch 4108GL" SystemOID=" 1.3.6.1.4.1.11.2.3.7.11.23">

    <Commands>

        <Command Name="RESET" Value="terminal length 1000"/>

        <Command Name="Reboot" Value="reset board{CRLF}y${CRLF}"/>

        <Command Name="EnterConfigMode" Value="configure"/>

        <Command Name="ExitConfigMode" Value="end"/>

        <Command Name="DownloadConfigIndirect" Value="copy config tftp text${CRLF}${StorageFilename}${CRLF}${StorageAddress}${CRLF}"/>

        <Command Name="UploadConfigIndirect" Value="copy tftp file${CRLF}4${CRLF}${StorageFilename}${CRLF}${StorageAddress}${CRLF}"/>

        <Command Name="EraseConfig" Value="reset configuration${CRLF}y${CRLF}"/>

        <Command Name="Version" Value="show version"/>

        <Command Name="PreCommand" Value=" "/>

    </Commands>

</Configuration-Management>

You should now be able to download configs from the switches.
