    Spectrum 10.3.2 incorrectly models Cisco 9300 switches as "Cisco IOS" instead of "Cisco IOS - SSH Capable"
    That means that config captures are done using TFTP instead of SSH

    On many devices this seems to fail unless you set a low "tftp blocksize" on the IOS device.

    Hi Omar,

    This known issue is fixed in the CA Spectrum 10.3.2 release.
    Did you add the cisco_ssh_check=9K in the $SPECROOT/SS/.vnmrc file and restart the SpectroSERVER application?

    https://techdocs.broadcom.com/content/broadcom/techdocs/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/it-operations-management/spectrum/10-3-2/release-information/issues-resolved.html

    Symptom: Cisco 9300 series devices are not placed in the ios-ssh family, even though the ssh is supported and k9 is enabled by default.
    Resolution: Add cisco_ssh_check=9K in the <SPECROOT>/SS/.vnrmc file and restart the SpectroSERVER, to place the Cisco 9300 series devices in the correct device family.
    (DE385140, 01186025, 10.3.2)

    Thank you - that works.

    The issue and solution does not seem to be well known to the Broadcom help desk as they opened a new device certification request.
