Add community names for SNMP traps


You can add up to 256 community names for SNMP traps.

  2. Select the SNMP tab.

    The trap destinations and community names appear in the table.

  3. Select Configure Communities.

    The Configure Communities dialog box opens.

  4. Select Add another community.

  5. Enter the new community name, and then click Save.


The new community name appears in the SNMP tab of the Alerts page.
