I need to enable SNMP on a MARS 6.x box, so it can be remotely monitored and provide health metrics. Does anyone know how to do this? I thought the old 4.x had it installed, but disabled. I can't remember how I enabled it and need to do this on a 6.x box. Any help is appreciated.
In order to gain access to the OS you have to issue the command "expert" after logging into the box itself.
The expert password is comprised of two components. One is user changeable, the other is only known to Cisco TAC. You need both components to form the complete password. Without it, you cannot gain access to the OS itself.
I too ran into this. Not for SNMP, but for auditing purposes and I wanted root access. TAC says no go unless they are debugging a serious problem.
So, I stopped thinking of this as a mystical black box, and started thinking of it as what it really is: a linux box as someone prior has stated.
Well, since it's just a linux box, during the install you can press alt-F2 and get a second tty. From there you can perform all manner of fun things that would indeed give you root access. This could also be done with sysrescue or similar...
Having said this, I certainly don't recomend tampering with a ``sealed system'' for a number of reasons, the primary one being that TAC won't be able to help you very much if you hose it.
