BNA switch users for fabric discovery

  • 1.  BNA switch users for fabric discovery

    Posted 05-25-2015 02:18 AM

    Hello guys, 

     

    some days ago i tried to discover some SAN Switches with the BNA (Brocade Network Advisor 12.1.x). 

    If i use the admin user (SAN Switch user) it works without any problems. 

    Then i have tried it with other users, but it didn't work. Maybe i have forgott something when i create the users?

    (i have created users with all kind of permissions like admin, fabricadmin, secadmin)

     

    I have used this command with FOS 6.4-7.2 Switches: cfguser --add

     

    Is there a possibility to discover the switches with another user as "admin" with lower permissions? 

     

    kind regards.

    The user has to have the "Chassis admin role" on the switch plus each logical switch needs to have the same switch and SNMPv3 user account on all logical switches (1 to 128)

    hey,

    thank you for your reply and solution.
    I have implemented a user with chassis admin role and it works fine.

     

    Kind regards.
