    Hi

     

    Had issues connecting to localhost when logging in  to network advisor 12.3.4

     

    Resolved this with various restarts etc.

     

    When logging into Network Advisor, now getting the message  user id or password invalid when using default Administrator uesid and password.

     

    Any ideas?

    @robd

     

    try follow:

     

    -start NA Server Management Console

    -AAA Settings

     

    and check if Primary Authetication is set to "Local Database"

     

    if you use different Authentication methode, i.e. Radius or LDAP, check the connectivity.

     

    If you Client is behind by a Firewall disable for short time to assure is not a FW problem.

     

    last option with care, from Management Console, stop all Services and restart.

     

    let me know.

     

    BTW. I'll moved the Threads in Correct Forum.

    Antonio,

    How do I troubleshoot authentication error when trying to discover switches that were recently discovered in version 14.0.1, but I have upgraded to 14.0.3 and now Im getting an authentication error. My BNA server is on the same subnet as switches, I can login via WebTools, and SSH into them, but BNA will not budge.

    ->My BNA server is on the same subnet ...

     

    can you please try in Login and at the promt to in Filed "Network Address" to point to real Server IP instead to default "localhost"

     

    if IPv6 is enable "but not configured" , please untag in LAN Network config Property.

    Antonio,

    My problem was not logging into BNA (SMI Agent Only), My problem was actually getting the fabrics discovered. I kept getting authentication errors. I recently upgraded the switches to 8.1.1 and found out that BNA had to be at 12.4.2, so I installed 12.3 and all is well now.

    to avoid some confusion for other user,

     

    you wrote:

    FOS 8.1.1 is not supported neitehr in BNA 12.4.2 nor 12.3

     

    Support for FOS 8.1.1 was introduced in BNA 14.3.0
