Enabling and Disabling SNMP Access on Virtual Routers

Beginning with ExtremeXOS 12.4.2 software, you can enable and disable SNMP access on any or all VRs. By default, SNMP access is enabled on all VRs.

When SNMP access is disabled on a VR, incoming SNMP requests are dropped and the following message is logged:

SNMP is currently disabled on VR <vr_name> Hence dropping the SNMP requests on this VR.

SNMP access for a VR has global SNMP status that includes all SNMPv1v2c, SNMPv3 default users and default group status. However, trap receiver configuration and trap enabling/disabling are independent of global SNMP access and are still forwarded on a VR that is disabled for SNMP access.
