configuring for SNMP V3 on cisco switches C3560

Hi,

We are currently using SNMP as below config.

What is the current SNMP version enable. I understand that if no "version" command, default is version1. Is it?

And we are planning to migrate to V3.

What need to be configured on our switches to work with version?

What information should i check with our monitoring server team?

Can we configure to add in without affecting existing monitoring ?

Re: configuring for SNMP V3 on cisco switches C3560

Hi ,

What is the current SNMP version enable. I understand that if no "version" command, default is version1. Is it?

Ans: currently , you are using SNMPv2c .

snmp-server host x.x.x.x STRING  >> If you don't specify anything in this command then only SNMP v1 traps will be sent. In this same command you can specify the type of traps you want to recive.

for e.g:

WL-6500(config)#snmp-server host 11.1.1.1 version ?

  1   Use SNMPv1

  2c  Use SNMPv2c

  3   Use SNMPv3

What need to be configured on our switches to work with version? 

Attached is the SAMPLE SNMPV3 configuration :

What information should i check with our monitoring server team?

you need to add the device or eidt the device with SNMPV3 credentials on the monitoring tool.

Can we configure to add in without affecting existing monitoring ?

Yes.

Thanks-

Afroz

configuring for SNMP V3 on cisco switches C3560

Hi Afroz,

Thanks for the sharing.

I think in the attach steps, you are using local user account, is it? For remote users, we need to define remote Engine ID?

I am confused with view, is "iso" the standard MIB view?

Thanks
