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-->
