We are having an issue retrieving configs from a set of 6500 switches. These devices are not accessable through telnet or ssh directly, but we do have snmp access to the devices, and TFTP access back to our Ciscoworks server. We have our Configuration Managment transport setting set up for TFTP, Telnet (because other devices do use telnet). However, when attempting to sync the config archive for one of these devices, it fails. A packet trace reveals the following communications:
- snmpget to the device for the SysUptime (device responds successfully)
then a telnet connection is attempted from Ciscoworks to the device, which fails, and the sync archive job fails.
I understand that Ciscoworks should be sending an snmpset to trigger the TFTP push back to the Ciscoworks server, but I'm not seeing any evidence of this happening.
Sound familiar to anyone?
