Changing passwords on devices....
« on: May 15, 2013, 11:02:43 PM »
It is a best practice to periodically change authentication on network devices.  If I change the SNMP or SSH credentials on all my devices, then Nedi will stop being able to contact them, unless I manually delete the devices (and lose information).

Request:
1) If a previously discovered device fails authentication, can we have Nedi try the passwords and communities listed in Nedi.conf?

Thanks!

Tristan

Good point for v2 communities (other passwords are solely in nedi.conf) You can try an update query in System-Export. I'm going to add a template...
