Configuring SNMP settings for the SG6000-CN controller

If you are familiar with configuring SNMP for hardware, you can use the BMC interface to configure the SNMP settings for the SG6000-CN controller. You can provide secure community strings, enable SNMP Trap, and specify up to five SNMP destinations.

Before you begin

Steps

  1. From the BMC dashboard, select Settings > SNMP Settings.
  2. On the SNMP Settings page, select the Enable SNMP V1/V2 checkbox, and provide a Read-Only Community String and a Read-Write Community String.
    The Read-Only Community String is like a user ID or password. You should change this value to prevent intruders from getting information about your network setup. The Read-Write Community String protects the device against unauthorized changes.
  3. Optionally, select Enable Trap, and enter the required information.
    Enable traps if you want the SG6000-CN controller to send immediate notifications to an SNMP console when it is in an unusual state. Traps might indicate link up/down conditions, temperatures exceeding certain thresholds, or high traffic.
  4. Optionally, click Send Test Trap to test your settings.
  5. If the settings are correct, click Save.
