SNMP Problems - Cisco Small Business swicth SF-300-08 and Cacti

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 and get Timeout: No Response from I verified firewall is wide open while I'm testing
What else could it be?

Is snmp enabled on the switch?
Avatar of piotrmikula108


that was the firs thing I did, went to SNMP tab > Communities and create a public community that is used on Cacti
sorry im not familiar enough with cisco switches, does creating a public community enable snmp on the switch as well?
no, you need to enable the Traps first and then create a community
so what is the output of show snmp?
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

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
so on the telnet session to it when can you do a show run? to see what the running config says?
alright guys, it's working :-) found the save button and saved it to startup-config and can do snmpwalk
I will assign the points for 34918163 - sorry for the delay
