    Is SNMP configured on the device you are trying to discover? Have you configured the same credentials in BNA? Have you tried testing SNMP with snmpwalk?

    Hi Lindsay


    I am new to this SNMP stuff.


    Can you guide me how i can check the SNMP config on the switches and BNA ? If possible correct procedure / set of commands will be very helpful .

    What sort of switches do you have? The specific configuration will depend on the devices you're using - e.g. configuring a VDX is quite different to configuring an FC switch.


    You can test that SNMP is working from a client system. If you're using Windows, then use something like this:


    OS X ships with snmpwalk by default, and Linux OSes have that available as a package.
