snmp-server community

To create Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) communities for SNMPv1 or SNMPv2c, use the snmp-server community command. To revert to the defaults, sue the no form of this command.

snmp-server community com-name [group grp-name | ro | rw | use-acl acl-name]

no snmp-server community com-name [group grp-name | ro | rw | use-acl acl-name]

Syntax Description

com-name

SNMP community string. The name can be any alphanumeric string up to 32 characters.

group grp-name

(Optional) Specifies the group to which the community belongs. The name can be a maximum of 32 characters.

ro

(Optional) Specifies read-only access with this community string.

rw

Command Default

None

Command Modes

Global configuration mode

Command History

Release
Modification

6.0(2)N1(1)

This command was introduced.


Usage Guidelines

You can assign an access list (ACL) to a community to filter incoming SNMP requests. If the assigned ACL allows the incoming request packet, SNMP processes the request. If the ACL denies the request, SNMP drops the request and sends a system message.

See the Security Configuration Guide for your platform for more information on creating ACLs. The ACL applies to both IPv4 and IPv6 over UDP and TCP. After creating the ACL, assign the ACL to the SNMP community.

Examples

This example shows how to create an SNMP community string and assign an ACL to the community to filter SNMP requests:

switch(config)# snmp-server community public use-acl my_acl_for_public 
switch(config)#

Syntax Description

host-address

IPv4 or IPv6 address or DNS name of the SNMP notification host.

community-string

String sent with the notification operation. The string can be a maximum of 32 alphanumeric characters.

We recommend that you define this string using the snmp-server community command prior to using the snmp-server host command.

filter-vrf vrf-name

Specifies the virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) instance. The name is case sensitive and can be a maximum of 32 alphanumeric characters.

default

management

Specifies the management VRF.

informs

1—SNMPv1.

2c—SNMPv2C.

3—SNMPv3. The following three optional keywords can follow the version 3 keyword:

auth—Enables Message Digest 5 (MD5) and Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA) packet authentication

Command Default

Disabled

Command Modes

Global configuration mode

Command History

Release
Modification

6.0(2)N1(1)

This command was introduced.


Usage Guidelines

SNMP notifications can be sent as traps or inform requests. Traps are unreliable because the receiver does not send acknowledgments when it receives traps. The sender cannot determine if the traps were received. However, an SNMP entity that receives an inform request acknowledges the message with an SNMP response PDU. If the sender never receives the response, the inform request can be sent again. Therefore, informs are more likely to reach their intended destination.

Examples

This example shows how to sends the SNMP traps to the host specified by the IPv4 address 192.168.0.10. The community string is defined as my_acl_for_public.:

switch(config)# snmp-server community public use-acl my_acl_for_public 
switch(config)# snmp-server host 192.168.0.10 my_acl_for_public 
switch(config)# 
 
   

This example shows how to send all inform requests to the host myhost.cisco.com using the community string my_acl_for_public:

switch(config)# snmp-server enable traps 
switch(config)# snmp-server host myhost.cisco.com informs version 2c my_acl_for_public 
switch(config)#

Modification

6.0(2)N1(1)

This command was introduced.


Usage Guidelines

A source port (also called a monitored port) is a switched port that you monitor for network traffic analysis. In a single local SPAN session, you can monitor source port traffic such as received (Rx), transmitted (Tx), or bidirectional (both).

A source port can be an Ethernet port, port channel, SAN port channel, VLAN, or a VSAN port. It cannot be a destination port.

There is no limit to the number of egress SPAN source ports.

SAN Port Channel interfaces can be configured as ingress or egress source ports.

The limit on the number of egress (TX) sources in a monitor session has been lifted.

Port-channel interfaces can be configured as egress sources.

For ERSPAN, if you do not specify both, rx, or tx, the source traffic is analyzed for both directions.

Examples

This example shows how to configure an Ethernet SPAN source port:

switch# configure terminal
switch(config)# monitor session 9 type local
switch(config-monitor)# description A Local SPAN session
switch(config-monitor)# source interface ethernet 1/1
switch(config-monitor)# 
 
   

This example shows how to configure a port channel SPAN source:

switch# configure terminal
switch(config)# monitor session 2

sw-profile-name

Name of the switch profile. The name is case sensitive, can be a maximum of 64 alphanumeric characters and can include an underscore and hyphen. The name cannot contain spaces or special characters.

all-config

Specifies that the switch profile be deleted with all local and peer configurations.

local-config

Command Modes

Command History

Release
Modification

6.0(2)N1(1)

This command was introduced.


Usage Guidelines

Use this command to create a switch profile on each of the peer switches. You must use the same profile name on both the switches in the Cisco Fabric Services (CFS) peer configuration.


Note In this release of Cisco NX-OS, only a pair of switches can be configured as a peer.


You can configure only one active switch profile on each peer switch. If you create or configure a second switch profile, you see the following error message:

Error: Another switch profile already exists. Cannot configure more than one 
switch-profile.
 
   

The configuration that is made locally on the switch is synchronized and made available on the peer switch only after the connectivity is established between the peer switches and the configuration is verified and committed on the local switch.

You can configure a switch profile to include the interface configuration, quality of service (QoS), and virtual port channel (vPC) commands. FCoE commands are not supported on a switch profile.

When you delete a switch profile, you can choose to delete the local switch profile with the local configurations on the switch, delete the switch profile with the local configurations and configuration information in the peer, or delete the switch profile only while saving all other configuraiton information. The peer becomes unreachable.

Examples

This example shows how to create a switch profile named s6000a on switch 1 of the peer:

Peer A

switch# configure terminal 
switch(config)# cfs ipv4 distribute 
switch(config)# exit 
switch# config sync 
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
switch(config-sync)# switch-profile s6000a 
Switch-Profile started, Profile ID is 1
switch(config-sync-sp)#
 
   

This example shows how to create a switch profile named s6000a on switch 2 of the peer:

Peer B

switch# configure terminal 
switch(config)# cfs ipv4 distribute 
switch(config)# exit 
switch# config sync 
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
switch(config-sync)# switch-profile s6000a 
Switch-Profile started, Profile ID is 1
switch(config-sync-sp)#
 
   

This example shows how to delete a switch profile named s6000a and its local configuration on switch 1 of the peer:

Peer A

switch# config sync 
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
switch(config-sync)# no switch-profile s6000a local-config 
switch(config-sync)#
