Object Description
Mode Indicates the SNMP mode operation. Possible modes are:
  • Enabled: Enable SNMP mode operation.
  • Disabled: Disable SNMP mode operation.
Version Indicates the SNMP supported version. Possible versions are:
  • SNMP v1: Set SNMP supported version 1.
  • SNMP v2c: Set SNMP supported version 2c.
  • SNMP v3: Set SNMP supported version 3.
Read Community Indicates the community read access string to permit access to SNMP agent. Valid length is 0 – 255, and the allowed content is 33 – 126 ASCII characters.

The field is applicable only when SNMP version is SNMPv1 or SNMPv2c. If SNMP version is SNMPv3, the community string will be associated with SNMPv3 communities table. It provides more flexibility to configure security name than a SNMPv1 or SNMPv2c community string. In addition to community string, a particular range of source addresses can be used to restrict source subnet.

Write Community Indicates the community write access string to permit access to SNMP agent. Valid length is 0 – 255, and the allowed content is 33 – 126 ASCII characters.

The field is applicable only when SNMP version is SNMPv1 or SNMPv2c. If SNMP version is SNMPv3, the community string will be associated with SNMPv3 communities table.

In addition to community string, a particular range of source addresses can be used to restrict source subnet.

Engine ID Indicates the SNMPv3 engine ID. The string must contain an even number (in hexadecimal format) with 10 – 64 digits, but all zeros and all Fs are not allowed. Changing Engine ID will clear all original local users.
