LMS 3 SNMP authentication using different communities

Answered Question
Aug 12th, 2010

Hello,

Is it possible to use different community strings for the SNMP set/polling and traps in Ciscoworks.

Can't find this in the documentation or the web.

So the config on the network device would look something like this:

! SNMP communities

!
snmp-server community SNMPREAD RO    ! Read-Only community
snmp-server community SNMPWRITE RW    ! Read-Write communicy
!
! SNMP traps
!
snmp-server host 1.1.1.1 version 2c SNMPTRAPS                   ! SNMP trap

In LMS I can only find to configure the port timeout and read/write community of a device.

Thanks for the assistance in advance

I have this problem too.

LMS doesn't care about the trap community string (you can configure whatever value you want on the device).  However, you can certainly configure different read-only and read-write strings.  This is done under Common Services > Device and Credentials > Device Management.  Click the Edit Credentials button, then fill in the appropriate values for each string.
