Setting up snmp with Network Advisor

I have BigIron RX series. I am setting up Brocade Network Advisor but stuck at configuring snmp. I don't know whether to use v2 or v3, plus I need help with the commands to use.

The BigIron config guide is not especially helpful.

Can anyone offer the commands to set up snmp so I can Discover the device with Network Advisor?

Many thanks

Re: Setting up snmp with Network Advisor

Hi btebo,

These are the setting I use for BNA for snmp v2c.

aaa authentication snmp-server default local

snmp-server community 1 mystring rw

snmp-server location Sydney

snmp-server host x.x.x.x1 version v2c 1 mystring

Thanks

Michael.

Re: Setting up snmp with Network Advisor

Thank you.

Here is what I heard from Brocade support on setting this up. This is supposed to limit what IP can connect but the RX does not like the command.

*********

ip access-list standard snmp-access permit host 10.10.10.10

********

What command would you use to limit access to a single IP?

Can you tell me what "aaa" signifies?

Thank you for your help

Re: Setting up snmp with Network Advisor

Hi btebo

The AAA is authentication, authorization, and accounting - you would only need that line if you want to use snmp v3 (then you would also need a few other

line of code to enable snmp v3)

This example should get you waht you need to restict access

BigIron RX(config)# access-list 25 deny host 209.157.22.98 log

BigIron RX(config)# access-list 25 deny 209.157.23.0 0.0.0.255 log

BigIron RX(config)# access-list 25 deny 209.157.24.0 0.0.0.255 log

BigIron RX(config)# access-list 25 permit any

BigIron RX(config)# access-list 30 deny 209.157.25.0 0.0.0.255 log

BigIron RX(config)# access-list 30 deny 209.157.26.0/24 log

BigIron RX(config)# access-list 30 permit any

BigIron RX(config)# snmp-server community public ro 25

BigIron RX(config)# snmp-server community private rw 30

BigIron RX(config)# write memory

The commands configure ACLs 25 and 30, then apply the ACLs to community strings. ACL 25 is used to control read-only access using the “public” community string. ACL 30 is used to control read-write access using the “private” community string.

Syntax: snmp-server community <string> ro | rw

<standard-acl-name> | <standard-acl-id>

The <string> parameter specifies the SNMP community string the user must enter to gain SNMP access.

NOTE: The ro parameter indicates that the community string is for read-only (“get”) access. The rw parameter indicates the community string is for read-write (“set”) access.

The <standard-acl-name> | <standard-acl-id> parameter specifies which ACL will be used to filter incoming SNMP packets.

The <standard-acl-id> parameter specifies the number of a standard ACL, 1 – 99.

The <standard-acl-name> parameter specifies the standard access list name.

Thanks

Michael.
