SNMP Write Failures above Firewalls

We're running RME3.4 with all of the latest patches on Sol2.8. All of the attributes in the RME database are verified to match the SNMP community strings on the devices. The devices we are trying to completely manage on the other side of firewalls are 6500s, CSS-11506 and 3640s. The firewall rules have routing from CiscoWorks to each device and port 161 for SNMP is allowed to pass through. However, the SNMP Write community strings show as incorrect in the attribute check. We've deleted the SNMP write strings and readded them, still have the same problem. Also tried different strings and received the same problem. The only attribute failure is the SNMP write community strings, telnet, TFTP, SNMP read, radius all work fine.


Re: SNMP Write Failures above Firewalls

If you're using RMEs Check Device Attribute (CDA) feature, then you'l find several bugs if you do a CCO Bug Toolkit search. CDA is not very relaiable. Do an export to file and see if the RW strings show up correctly as what you've entered. If they are then, CDA is wrong.
