    Hi,

         Which user are you trying to use from DCFM?  SNMPv3 requires username and password and only the admin user (User 1) has auth set.

    Thanks

    Michael.

    Hi Michael,

         Thanks for reply, Yes I am using admin user as user 1 and same password has been given in the DCFM discovery setup.

    Hi Techhelp24,

          FOS is 6.4.3d  and DCFM is at 10.4.5.

    ->Discovered: SNMP communication failed. SNMP credentials may be invalid. : Seed Switch

    if communication failed invalid "Seed Switch" , this error is usually caused due FOS Incompatibility or unsupported Plattforms.

    Latest DCFM Patch v10.4.5a was released on May 06,2011

    --->>>FOS is 6.4.3d  and DCFM is at 10.4.5.

    FOS 6.4.3d which was released on February 22, 2013, report in Release Notes DCFM 10.4.5a is Supported.

    I'll not insist, but is most probable you have to check if the patch is installed !!

    I had this problem and it related a Firewall Rule between the Server and Switch. Apparently, there are two different Firewall rules that can be used for snmp get (UDP 161) - 'snmp' or 'snmp_read'. For some reason 'snmp_read' seems to be more restrictive and has 'application intelligence' and this was blocking the traffic. Please note that this might only relate to Checkpoint Firewalls.

    --->>> ....on DCX switch.  But under the DCFM....

    old DCFM support DCX only till FOS 6.4.x

    If you are running in higher FOS Release, is not supported, in such case you have to switch to BNA
