BNA 12.4.2 alert "SSH access by user dummy from src IP a.b.c.d rejected, 1 attempt(s)".

  • 1.  BNA 12.4.2 alert "SSH access by user dummy from src IP a.b.c.d rejected, 1 attempt(s)".

    Posted 11-25-2017 06:12 AM

    I am getting alerts on my BNA that "SSH access by user dummy from src IP a.b.c.d rejected, 1 attempt(s)". BNA is trying to access Brocade ICX switch and it is giving this alert. Some days back we have changed ICX switch credentials and from there onward we are getting this alert continously.  How can I fix this problem, I mean i am sure BNA is accessing ICX with previous credentials and attempt is failing. How can we resolve it or how can we change credentials in BNA. Please guide.

     

    Thank you.
