Data Infrastructure Management Software Discussions
Hi, I cannot remove the 'public' SNMP community string from my filer using system manager because I get the following error
"OnCommand System Manager is configured to use 'public' community to communicate with this storage system. So you cannot delete or edit this community"
I cannot find where in OnCommand I am supposed to change this
Can someone please point me in the right direction
the solution is to adapt the following configuration file
C:\Documents and Settings\<your username>\NetApp\SystemManager\SystemManager.config.
Search for <snmp-community> and replace Public by another community (because you need a community for the system manager => don't forget to create a community before doing the modification)
I am running OnCommand System Manager 2.1 on a 64-bit Windows 7 machine, and I can't seem to find the SystemManager.config file anywhere. Any suggestion?
To remove the SNMP public, you can try the following
Remove all system from the console
make a Discovery by using the root/password (don't use SNMP for the discovery)
normally you can remove de public community
For the systemmanger.config, try the following location C:\users\<you username>\netapp\systemmanager
Thanks for the info Eric. I had actually already tried going to c:\users\<username>\netapp\systemmanager, but when I go into c:\users\<username>, there is no netapp folder. Any other suggestions?
I had to go to the CLI and run SNMP community delete ro public. That was the only way I could do it.
This would be the method to use to remove the public community string.
We will have the documentation updated for this behavior.
