Trying to add Cisco Small Business Swicth SF-300-08  to monitor in Cacti.
Added the device but getting error in Cacti SNMP error - that's it
I downloaded snmpwalk.exe and when I run snmpwalk.exe -Os -c public -v 2c 10.0.0.122 and get Timeout: No Response from 10.0.0.122. I verified firewall is wide open while I'm testing
What else could it be?

that was the firs thing I did, went to SNMP tab > Communities and create a public community that is used on Cacti

no, you need to enable the Traps first and then create a community

well I don't have a console access, but thru the GUI, under Services, I enabled the SNMP, Telnet, SSH so I can telnet but not getting a regular IOS CLI, only DOS-like menu with option to select, but it says SNMP is enabled

Mathi28, I would try if I had console access and see if I can get regular IOS CLI, telnet doesn't give me that options, but still GUI and that DOS-like telnet session with menus says SNMP is enabled and via GUI RO community string is set

when you made the changes to your settings in the GUI did you save your settings to memory?  You may need to do that before the settings take affect.

there is really no place in the GUI (like you have in ASDM or SDM) to click Save, it just saves it. Again, this is a Cisco's Small Business type of managed switch so not sure how much of regular Cisco IOS "rules" apply

sorry, I was wrong, there is a tint Save button, but that only lets you save from running config to start up config, but I didn't have to reboot so the changes should apply
