    See Access a Metering Unit on the Network (Enhanced PDU).

    Caution  -  If you disable HTTP, you are no longer be able to log in to the HTML interface using a web browser. To re-enable HTTP access, you can use your SNMP agent software. Refer to the SNMP agent documentation or the Oracle Solaris snmpset(1M) man page for more information. You can also use the CLI command to re-enable HTTP, pducli -> set net_web_version=1 or 2 (1 for HTTP, 2 for HTTPS.).

  5. Select the appropriate MIB and click submit.

    The enhanced PDU is the default MIB setting.

  6. Define up to four NMS hosts on the network for SNMP v1/v2 then click submit.

    A network management station (NMS) host runs network management applications that monitor and control SNMP-managed devices. NMS hosts provide the resources required for network management.

  7. Define up to 10 SNMP v3 users then click submit.

    For each user select security level, auth algorithm, privacy algorithm, access type, and then check the enable box to enable this user.

    See Step 4 in Add Users and Change Passwords (Enhanced PDU).
