TitleEXOS switch Backup Over NetSight always "Different"
Symptoms
  • Backup Over NetSight always "Different"
  • Changes seen where passwords are encrypted such as TACACS, Netlogin and SNMPv3
  • Issue appeared after upgrade from EXOS firmware version 16.1.1.4
Environment
  • Summit X460G2-48p-10G4
  • NetSight version 7.0.6.27
  • EXOS firmware version 22.1.1.5
  • TACACS
  • Netlogin
  • SNMPv3
Cause
Security enhancements were made to provide a stronger algorithm for encrypted passwords
Resolution
Please contact the GTAC
A future firmware release will address the changing encrypted password
Additional notes
Although the encrypted password is changed every time there is a "save" on the EXOS switch; NetSight does a "save" prior to the backup.
However the actual password is not being changed.
