How do I turn off SNMPv3 privacy on a DFM mgt server (version 4.0.2)

All,

We have a DFM Mgt server (newly installed) running 4.0.2. It appears like our inability to connect to any hosts is do to the fact that SNMPv3 privacy is turned on within DFM. We have a second DFM server running (in production) that says SNMPv3 privacy is off and it can see hosts just fine. Is there a way to edit this field in DFM? Any pointers would be welcomed!

Thanks,

jeff

Hi Wroley,

If you have enabled privacy for a prticular host/network, please check dfm snmp list

[root@lnx186-58 ~]# dfm snmp list

ID   Address                                    Prefix Length  Pref SNMP Version  Community  Auth Protocol    Login            Privacy

---- ------------------------------------------ -------------- ------------------ ---------- ---------------- ---------------- --------

2    x.x.x.x                                            x bits        SNMPv3                                      SHA              abcd                Yes

If 'Privacy' is shown as "Yes" & you want to disable it, execute the follwoing command:

dfm snmp modify   -X "" x.x.x.x

or

dfm snmp modify   -X ""  2

Now check dfm snmp list again.

[root@lnx186-58 ~]# dfm snmp list

ID   Address                                    Prefix Length  Pref SNMP Version  Community  Auth Protocol    Login            Privacy

---- ------------------------------------------ -------------- ------------------ ---------- ---------------- ---------------- --------

2    x.x.x.x                                             x bits         SNMPv3                                       SHA              abcd             No

Privacy is set to 'No'

I hope this will be helpful.

Thanks & Regards,
