We are completely replacing a FC5022 switch in an IBM Flex Chassis with the same make/model switch. We backed up the config prior to replacement and are now having issues when trying to do a configdownload after replacement. We get the following error:
Process function of configdownload failed for filter snmp, lrc = -1
When I do a configshow -a, I don't see those values in the config on the new switch. Anyone have any ideas how we can quickly get around this?
you can try to edit the config file before performing the configdownload and delete those snmp entries
Thanks for the reply. I did end up editing the config to remove those entries and the configdownload then worked; however, I'm now having an issue where I can't discover these new switches in Network Advisor and am wondering if these lines are needed for some reason (I opened a new discussion for that issue). These lines do show up in my other switches when I do a configshow -a. I can't figure out how to alter the config on the system to have these lines in there. You'd think that a configdownload would just overwrite the config, but it doesn't. Is there a way to manually edit the running config on a switch?
please paste here the output of snmpconfig --show snmpv3
which of those users are you using to discover the switchs? I think that those entries are associated to SNMPv3 user 1, so you could try with a different user and/or try to recreate the snmpconfig with: snmpconfig --default snmpv3
