Using the Simple Network Management Protocol
Any network manager program running the SNMP can manage the switch if the Management Information Base (MIB) is installed correctly on the management station.
Each network manager program provides its own user interface to the management facilities.
NoteWhen using a network manager program to create a VLAN, we do not support the SNMP createAndWait operation. To create a VLAN with SNMP, use the createAndGo operation.
createAndGo is one of six values in the RowStatus column of SMIv2 tables. createAndGo is supplied by a manager wishing to create a new instance of a conceptual row and have its status automatically set to active in order to make it available for use by the managed device
The following sections describe how to get started if you want to use an SNMP manager. It assumes you are already familiar with SNMP management.
NotePerform a save operation if you make any configurations using SNMP mibs. If you do not save, some of the configurations may not survive when you reboot.
