I generated a report on Device Credentials using Device credentials Verification job and it cames back with wrong SNMP credentials, here's the weird bit.

I checked SNMP R & RW on the successful devices and failed devices, both have the same R and RW community strings!! Any ideas?

It takes more than correct community strings for RME's Device Credential Verification to work.  First, the devices must be SNMP reachable from the RME server.  Have you verified the SNMP packets are making it to the devices?  If you run a "debug snmp packet" on the non-working devices, do you see the incoming requests from RME?  Do those requests make it back to the RME server.  Next, check that if you have community string ACLs applied on the non-working devices that they allow the IP address of the RME server.
