configure snmpv3 engine-id

configure snmpv3 engine-id hex_engine_id


Configures the SNMPv3 snmpEngineID.

Syntax Description

hex_engine_id Specifies the colon delimited hex octet that serves as part of the snmpEngineID (5-32 octets).


The default snmpEngineID is the device MAC address.

Usage Guidelines

Use this command if the snmpEngineID needs to be explicitly configured. The first four octets of the ID are fixed to 80:00:07:7C,which represents Extreme Networks Vendor ID. Once the snmpEngineID is changed, default users are reverted back to their original passwords/keys, while non-default users are removed from the device.


The following command configures the snmpEngineID to be 80:00:07:7C:00:0a:1c:3e:11:

configure snmpv3 engine-id 00:0a:1c:3e:11


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.
