SNMP V3 Configuration

Hi All,

 

We have deployed 2 new 6510 switches running 7.4.x. We need to configure SNMP alerting and send them to netcool. I have few basic queries on this.

 

1) We are aware of the SNMP manager IP. To configure SNMP V3, do we need to create a new user dedicated for SNMP V3? If yes why?

2) What is the use of these community strings and why are there 6 entries and how do they differ?

3) Do I need to manually create new community strings or without community strings can I enable SNMP v3?

4) Do I need to configure MAPS for this SNMP??

 

Thanks in Advance!!!

Thanks Nate. Few more queries,

 

1. While configuring V3, There are 6 users, 3 for RO and 3 for RW. Why Ro and RW and its use??

2. We can give 6 SNMP manager IP's if I understand it right?

Hi DattaSai,

 

RW communities allow to run set command to change settings via SNMP, RO only allows read-only (get commands). 

 

For the person running will need the user name used (snmpadmin1 or snmpuser1) plus IP address of the switch.  if you configure the snmpv3 to use Authentication and/or Privacy protocol, you will need to provide the Authentication and Privacy protocol password which you configured on the switch (and which protocol are configured). In your example you have no privacy (password) and no authentication (password).
