NCM backup is not working


This problem arises from the following possible causes;

1. If the device is discovered with Read Only SNMP Community string (RO).

2.If SCP and privileges are not set correctly.


Spectrum 9.4.x and 10.x



Check the following steps when capturing using SSH/SCP:

1.Device should be discovered using Read Write SNMP Community string (RW)

2. The following configuration lines should be present

aaa new-model
aaa authentication login default local group tacacs+
aaa authorization exec default local group tacacs+
ip scp server enable

Additional Information

The following Broadcom (CA Technologies) community discussion provide further details:

Broadcom Communities - To perform NCM capture using SSH/SCP, why RW access with privilege 15 is required. Why not RO access?
