Here I go again...We had configured one of our FWSM's to allow snmpv2c / ssh to archive the configs. All went well...finally got it working, thanks to JClarke....so, I'm in doing the same thing, exact procedure with a different FWSM...From CW, SSH credentials test good. I can SSH to the interface on the firewall from the CW server all appears good.

However, when I attempt to SNMP walk, or test the community string from within CW, it fails with "Wrong Credentials". this seems like a trivial problem. But have verified the credentials and have even changed them (longer/more complex) and still, same error...verified ACL to the interface on the FWSM (allows IP any/any) any thoughts on this particular "wrong credentials" prob...

The same suggestions I offered before still apply. You must allow the LMS server to poll the FWSM:

snmp-server host Vlan10 poll community public

Beyond that, use a sniffer to make sure the SNMP packets are making it to the FWSM, and that the community string is, in fact, correct.
