What is difference when RME fetch config. I have two kind of devices. Telnet and SSH switches. If i dont enter primary credentials(CS) in telnet switch config fetch fails. In ssh switch i dont have to enter primary credentials. Fetch is OK without entering those primary credentials.

Any idea

Config fetch initially works the same for all device types. That is, the protocol order used is set globably per application. For the devices where you do not have username/password configured, RME must be fetching the config using an alternate protocol like SNMP/TFTP. For those that are failing, either the alternate protocol is not supported by those devices, or there is another credential issue.

The protocol order is set under RME > Admin > Config Mgmt > Transport Settings.
