Is it possible to add a Brocade VDX6740 switch to the Extreme Management center?

I installed Netsight on Hyper V, but found it difficult that I was not able to add the Brocade VDX6740.

I would like a help with this topic.

Thank you.

The VDX can be added for simple SNMP monitoring at this time. For configuration changes and advanced management, this may come later. The release notes below does list the currently supported platforms:


Could you check the running config on the VDX to see what is currently configured for SNMP? We may have to setup an SNMP profile in XMC based on the SNMP credentials or communities configured on the device.
For SNMP I only have the following configuration:

snmp-server contact "Field Support."
snmp-server location "End User Premise."
snmp-server sys-descr "Brocade VDX Switch."
snmp-server enable trap

So there appears to be no SNMP configured (apart from the minor variables listed). You may want to review to following article to get SNMPv1/v2 or v3 configured and enabled. It would be best to test with v1/v2 and move to v3, if needed:
