Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1.1 SNMP Connectivity Failed with N5K

Hi all,


I'm facing a strange issue with CPI 2.1.1 and N5K 5596UP NX-OS 5.2(1)N1(8a), for some reason I'm getting a SNMP Connectivity Failed, here are my T-SHOOT that I've done so far:


1. increasing the timeout and retries - didn't help.

2. change from SNMP v3 to SNMP v2 - didn't help.

3. tried to stop the SNMP process in N5K with the command: no snmp-server protocol disable - its seems that the command not working.

4. stop/start the process.

5. reload the CPI.


also the odd thing is that I have an exact N5K and they are in VPC and don't have any issue with it.


please anyone have an idea?

The command is incorrect,

The command is incorrect, which should be # no snmp-server protocol enable and not disable. Please login to PI and go to root shell and try to do a snmp poll on the device from there if it fails/succeed.

syntax : snmpwalk -v 2c -c <community>  <IP_Add> <OID>

example : snmpwalk -v2c -c publis system
