we are testing currently LMS 3.2 for a very large installation. In our network snmp-write access to devices is currently forbidden by a special company policy. The devices can only contacted via snmp-read and telnet/ssh.
So my questions is:
For which functions does LMS 3.2 realy need snmp-write access to the devices ? Or can I use telnet/ssh intead of snmp-write always ?
CiscoView also requires the SNMP read-write for most its configuration tasks (some can use telnet/SSH). This is not nearly as show-stopping as IPM, though. IPM is pretty much useless without SNMP read-write. But note, that community string-based SNMP is no longer required in LMS. You can move to SNMPv3, and be able to do SET operations in a more secure manner.
