Disabling SNMP on GSP


Disabling SNMP on GSP

We have various servers, RP5470's, RP7410's and RP8400's all with GSP configured on a management network. The network administrators have asked that we stop the servers responding to SNMP requests using the community name of "public". How can I either change the default community name or stop SNMP altogether on the GSP. I have stopped SNMP daemons within the HPUX OS but of course this makes no diference to what GSP does.

Re: Disabling SNMP on GSP

Have a look at /etc/snmpd.conf and modify
the get and set-community-name values.
You'll need to restart snmpd
I think its

/sbin/init.d/SnmpMaster stop

should do that for you.

Re: Disabling SNMP on GSP

Hi Phil,
Connect to the MP and enter the command menu (CM). There you can access the Paging options (PG). You should be able to set the SNMP parameters there.

Ian, I don't see anything obvious in the paging options. Can you give me more of a clue.

Re: Disabling SNMP on GSP

Hi Phil,

for the rp5470 you can only use/have SNMP from GSP if GSP FW is B.02.20 (or above): You see the GSP Version by tyoping 'he' on the GSP prompt. If you have B.02.20, than try the 'so' option to play with SNMP...
for the rp7410/rp8400,, please go to the MP Prompt, type 'cm', and afterwards, type 'id' to configure anything with SNMP...
