Set SNMP Management Access and Authorization

Before You Begin

  • To modify SNMP properties in Oracle ILOM, you must have the Admin role (a) enabled.

  • The SNMP service state is, by default, shipped from the factory enabled.

  • Oracle ILOM provides authentication properties for each of the following SNMP protocol versions: v1, v2c, and v3.

    • For SNMP v2c, Oracle ILOM provides a communities property with values of public and private to manage user authentication. However, the property values for SNMP v2c communities are, by default, shipped from the factory disabled.

    • For SNMP v3, Oracle ILOM provides a users property to manage user authentication. The users property is, by default, shipped from the factory enabled. The SNMP v3 users property is not shipped from the factory with pre-packaged values for users.

To set the SNMP service state, properties:

  1. Log in to the Oracle ILOM web interface.
  2. On the left navigation panel, click ILOM Administration.
  3. Click Management Access > SNMP.

    The SNMP Management page appears.

  4. To enable the SNMP port, click the State check box.

    When State is disabled, the SNMP port is blocked, prohibiting all SNMP communication between Oracle ILOM and the network.

  5. In the Port text field, type the port number.
  6. Leave the Engine ID field blank. This allows the default setting to be used.

    The engine ID is automatically set by the SNMP agent. While you can use this field to set the engine ID, you should leave this field blank. The engine ID uniquely identifies the SNMP engine and enables users to query the SNMP agent. Use this field to set the engine ID only if you are familiar with SNMP v3 security and how this setting is used.

  7. To enable SNMP v2c, or v3, click a Protocols check box.

    SNMP v3 is enabled by default. You can enable or disable v2c and v3 protocol versions.

  8. Click Save.

    At the bottom of the SNMP Management page, you can also add, edit, or delete SNMP communities or users.
