Extreme x620-16t Inventory manager archive error "Connection Refused" CLI access is not enabled


I have 2 x620-16t switches that my coworker has setup. The 2nd switch was setup using the config from the first one and had the IP changed so the config should be the same. However, I am not able to get the archive working in EMC/Inventory Mgr. It gives the error "Connection refused, CLI access is not enabled for this device". I got the first one working but this one will not. How to I enable this when all settings that I know of are or should be the same as the first switch?

Hello Phillip,

Do you have any configuration on either switch in relation to an access profile or any type of security configuration?

Are you talking about the SNMP profile? They are both set to the same as all other switches.

Check in EMC if both are set to the same profile in device mapping (lower part of the screen) ...

They are the same.

If you use SSH, do you have the key generated? What is the "show management" output from both? Any difference there?

+1, what Pala wrote..also...

A basic test would be to telnet/ssh to both switches (from the EMC CLI) using the same user/pw - just to check whether the user/pw is the same on both - you didn't mentioned if that works.

I set the username and password the same on both. The odd thing is, I can use that login info with SSH on the first switch that was setup but I cannot use SSH on the 2nd switch but the same login info works with telnet. Using Putty.

Patch 1-2
Remove the switch and re-add it. If that's possible...
Well, it turns out that there was a bug for SSH in the firmware version that came on the switches. The latest that came out on February 1st is supposed to fix it and I will be applying that to both switches today and retesting.
