Hi All

Had a basic query on SNMP polling for CSS 11501..

Im polling a CSS through Ethernet Management Interface, and the SNMP servers are detecting the system name as "Support" instead of the hostname of the device..

SNMP get sysname from x.x.x.x with ****
. = Support

Is there a way to alter the SNMP sysname, to be identical to the hostname of the device ? I dont have issues with other components like routers, switches etc..

Hi Sachin,

Use the snmp name command to set or modify the SNMP name for this system.

You can specify only one name.

The syntax for this global configuration mode command is as follows:

snmp name "name"

Enter the SNMP name as the unique name assigned to a system by the administrator.

Enter a quoted text string with a maximum of 255 characters.

The standard name convention is the system's fully qualified domain name (for example, [email protected]).

For example:

(config)# snmp name "[email protected]"

To remove the SNMP name for a system and reset it to the default of "Support", enter:

(config)# no snmp name

Best regards,

Sachin Garg
