SANtricity commands

Register SNMP community


The create snmpCommunity command creates a new Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) community, community name string and registers the new community as a known entity to the SNMP agent. Any attempt to register a new community with the same name as that of an existing community is rejected and the firmware returns an error message.

Supported Arrays

This command applies to an individual E2800, E5700, EF600 or EF300 storage array. It does not operate on E2700 or E5600 storage arrays.


To execute this command on an E2800, E5700, EF600, or EF300 storage array, you must have the Storage Admin or Support Admin role.
