Cisco ANM 5.2 Device Import Issue

Hello,

I have installed ANM 5.2 virtual appliance.

I have an issue importing a Catalyst 6500 device.

When I try to import it, I get the following error:

Device discovery failed: Cannot communicate to the device.

Authentication failure while attempting to connect. Verify the device

type and credentials.

I double verified and the credentials are correct.

I user SSH version 2.

I use the following special carachters in the password:

"!" and space.

I don't use enable password to connect to the 6500 device. The 6500 device has a privilege 15 username.

In ANM, the enable password is a requirement so I just fill in the regular password.

I think the issue is appearing due to one of the following:

1.) The ANM does not support the special carachters I use in the 6500 password.

2.) Then ANM requires enable password, while I don't use enable password in the 6500 switch.

The 6500 runs SXI6 software version.

I can't configure an enable password or configure a test username without special carachters beacause it's against the organization's policy.

Does anyone familiar with this issue?
