When trying to discovery an Exadata Database Machine timeout errors will occur when testing the credentials for the InfiniBand switches if a non-default v1 or v2c community string is used. If the user proceeds past the validate credentials step discovery of the switch fails. A non-default community string would be any string other than public or private. This issue does affect switches discovered using snmp v3.
