Is the P 2000 G3 FC just capable of SNMP v1 ?

Hi,

we have a MSA array P 2000 G3 FC, and i'd like to integrate it into HP SIM.

From what i see it knows only SNMP v1. Is that true ?

Thanks.

Bernd

I'm sure it is SNMPv2, but not v3.

Hope this helps!

HI Torsten,

i was astonished about your answer and so i doublechecked with tcpdump and wireshark. It's SNMP v1.
Or does it depend on the firmware ?

From user guide:

 

P2000 G3 MSA Systems use SNMPv2c, which improves on SNMPv1 features and uses its
community-based security scheme


Hope this helps!

Strange. wireshark says something different. Do you want to have the cap file ?

Re: Is the P 2000 G3 FC just capable of SNMP v1 ?

this would make it incompatible to any receiver or manager.

why should the msa use a 30 years old protocol instead of a 25 Years old protocol?

Hope this helps!

This is from "HP P2000 G3 MSA System SMU Reference Guide":

This appendix describes the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) capabilities that P2000 G3

MSA Systems support. This includes standard MIB-II, the FibreAlliance SNMP Management Information

Base (MIB) version 2.2 objects, and enterprise traps.

P2000 G3 MSA Systems can report their status through SNMP. SNMP provides basic discovery using

MIB-II, more detailed status with the FA MIB 2.2, and asynchronous notification using enterprise traps.

SNMP is a widely used network monitoring and control protocol. It is an application layer protocol that

facilitates the exchange of management information between network devices. It is part of the Transmission

Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) protocol suite.

SNMP enables network administrators to manage network performance, find and solve network problems,

and plan for network growth. Data is passed from SNMP agents reporting activity on each network device

to the workstation console used to oversee the network. The agents return information contained in a

Management Information Base (MIB), which is a data structure that defines what is obtainable from the

device and what can be controlled (turned on and off, etc.).

An SNMP object identifier (OID) is a number assigned to devices in a network for identification purposes.

OID numbering is hierarchical. Using the IETF notation of digits and dots resembling very long IP

addresses, various registries such as ANSI assign high-level numbers to vendors and organizations. They,

in turn, append digits to the number to identify individual devices or software processes.

P2000 G3 MSA Systems use SNMPv2c, which improves on SNMPv1 features and uses its

community-based security scheme.

That was not planned in this way.
