Since there are more than one engineer and configs that date back, I am unable to be sure of some community strings on the appliances.
How can I determine what they are?
Thanks in advance

If their configured in some kind of monitoring tool (Cacti, Cisco, Brocade) you're only option (AFAIK) is to log on to each and every device and look at the SNMP config.

>>the switch/router/loadbalancer itself
>>the management box for switches/routers/loadbalancers
What produkt do you use i.e. what brand/name?
Is management webbased and if yes?

Without any details on how where you are trying to get the SNMP community strings I can only say;
If the network devices doesn't let you look at the comm.string in plain text through web or cli GUI
AndIf any SNMP montoring tool in which aformentioned devices are visible doesn't show them either in gui OR databases
AndIf nobody bothered to write to strings down somewhere
AndIf nobody present in the company can reproduce those strings OR the ones who left the company
-add new string leave ald ones intact so nothing breaks.
-reset SNMP strings
And document new strings
