Change of SNMP trap community possible?

Hi all

Is it possible to change the SNMP trap community in ONTAP 8.0.2 7-mode?

Reason for the change is, that a customer don't want to use the default "public" community, as they deem this a potential security hazard (yes, I know that traps are unsafe by definition).

Regards,

Lars,

     You can change it from command line or filerview.

CLI

snmp community delete all OR ro public

snmp community add ro NEW_COMMUNITY

Filerview

SNMP >> configure and then just follow the prompts

Hi Scott,

Well, that is correct. However, I want to change the SNMP trap community, that is the community used by the NetApp controller, when it sends SNMP traps towards a management station (SNMP trap receiver).
