Yes, the read-write community string is needed to do any kind of config fetch operation via SNMP.

Re: RME not archiving some devices

To debug these kind of problems, you should enable ArchiveMgmt debugging under RME > Admin > System Preferences > Loglevel Settings, then run your job again. Then look for errors in the dcmaservice.log. A sniffer trace filtering on all traffic to a failing device while the job runs is also a good thing to have.

For this particular error, you may also want to validate the credentials for your device are correct in DCR by exporting the DCR record for the device to a CSV file.

It looks like you're missing the telnet password for this device. Go to Common Services > Device and Credentials > Device Management then export the DCR contents for this device. Chances are the password field is blank. Just add a password to DCR for this device, and you should be okay.

Re: RME not archiving some devices

Based on the information you have provided, I cannot help further. The log indicates a failed telnet login. Check to make sure you have entered the correct password in DCR. Use the RME Device Credential Verification report under RME > Devices > Device Management to make sure the password is correct. Also, get a sniffer trace of all telnet traffic to the device in question while performing the sync archive job. You should be able to learn more from that.
