CheckSWProfile.Sh Reports "Failed To Login Admin User With Given Password For Switch"
Last updated on AUGUST 12, 2015
Applies to:Exadata Database Machine V2 - Version All Versions and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
When running the script '/opt/oracle.SupportTools/CheckSWProfile.sh' with -I or -S options (used to check Infiniband switch configuration) the script reports the message:
[ERROR] Failed to login admin user with given password for switch 'myswitch'
- The correct root password has been supplied.
- The script goes on to connect successfully to the switch and is able to print the switch information:
[ERROR] Failed to login admin user with given password for switch <my switch>
[INFO] SUCCESS Switch <my switch> has correct software and firmware version:
[INFO] SUCCESS Switch <my switch> has correct opensm configuration:
controlled_handover=TRUE polling_retry_number=5 routing_engine=ftree sminfo_polling_timeout=1000 sm_priority=5
- This script is also called from exachk so you may see exachk reporting a similar failure.
- The message is slightly misleading as there is no 'admin' user on the V2/X2 switches, also the correct root password was supplied to the script.
