TELNET: Failed to establish TELNET connection



I've launched a NetShow job against several routers. The job result is successful but appears the following message:

Deploy successful (TELNET: Failed to establish TELNET connection to  - Cause: Authentication failed on device 3 times. Primary Login Succeeded /  Primary Enable Succeeded )

We have only access by ssh to the routers, no telnet is configured, so that message is OK. But, how could I configure CW to try only ssh connection mode to routers? Swiches use telnet instead of I should configure only telnet as connection mode...

Thanks in advance.

You can set the protocol order for Configuration Management applications such as Archive Management, Config Editor, and NetConfig jobs to download configurations and to fetch configurations. For NetShow, you can set the protocol order to download configurations.

You havent mentioned the LMS version as path to this feature would differ. I will provide navigation link for both lms 3 and 4.

LMS 3.x :

CiscoWorks LMS Portal > RME > Admin > Config Mgmt > Transport Settings

LMS 4.x :

Admin > Collection Settings: Config > Config Transport Settings
