Usage Guidelines

This command is used to disable SNMPv3 default-group or default-user access.

Disabling SNMPv3 default-group access removes access to default-users and user-created users who are part of the default-group. The user-created authenticated SNMPv3 users (who are part of a user-created group) are able to access the switch. By disabling default-users access, the end-user is not able to access the switch/MIBs using SNMPv3 default-user.

The default groups are: admin, initial, v1v2c_ro, v1v2c_rw.

The default users are: admin, initial, initialmd5, initialsha, initialmd5Priv, initialshaPriv.


The following command disables the default group on the switch:

disable snmp default-group
