NetSight 6.1.171 with Extreme Summit switch X430 firmware 15.6 always snmp timeout?


Userlevel 1
Our customer use NetSight 6.1.171 with Extreme Summit switch X430 firmware 15.3, and NetSight sometimes shows snmp timeout error.

I ask the problem on HUB, and got it will resolve with NetSight 6.2 and XOS 15.4 or later.

Since the NetSight 6.2 does not release, I upgrade the XOS to 15.6 first.

After upgrade XOS to 15.6, it "always" got snmp timeout error,
and sometimes causes the switch SNMP Contact Lost:contact on NetSight.

Will the problem be resolved on NetSight 6.2?

This is driving me crazy...

After download the NetSight 6.2.0.183, the snmp timeout problem does not reslove.
I found it was caused by search some Enterasys MIB on Extreme Summit Switch.

Uncheck the Enterasys MIB option, the compass search function works great with out any error finally.

Hi Shunze,
Thanks for sharing your solution with us!

It sounds like this could be a bug - Netsight shouldn't use an Enterasys MIB on devices that don't speak that language. Would you mind opening a case with GTAC to report this (and your workaround)?

Great Solution!!! This had been driving me crazy for ages too. Getting exactly the same results and this fixed my problem.

I have a case open on 01110668.

Have a switch that currently works on the network and one taken out of the box and upgraded firmware that doesn't. Output shown below:
