I have a script that will modify an otherwise static configuration. I need to send a trigger to the router from a remote Linux server (SNMPv3 preferred) with a parameter that tells the script the value to set this configuration to.
Does anyone have an idea how to do this? I'd like to use SNMPv3 to pass the data along with the auth/priv functions of SNMPv3, but the TAC is saying there is no way to do this and that I should look on the Cisco Support Forums.
You could use SNMP traps from Linux to the router. I've only ever used v1 traps for this, though. There was a bug where v2 traps did not work, but that may be resolved now. You could try this with v3.
But if you need reliability and security, I recommend the XML RPC event detector. This allows you to send XML over SSH to trigger EEM policies. I wrote a small Perl API for this at https://supportforums.cisco.com/sites/default/files/legacy/2/3/6/14632-C... .
