We can see that the SNMP port are set to 161 and 162.

However when I load this config, I connect to the ILO the port used by SNMP are 25646 and 24951.

Why ?

Re: Strange SNMP port using hponcfg

Hello,

Need to check about the ports open in the firewall

TCP port 24951 uses the Transmission Control Protocol. TCP is one of the main protocols in TCP/IP networks.
TCP port 25646 uses the Transmission Control Protocol. TCP is one of the main protocols in TCP/IP networks.
Both ports are used by TCP/UDP

24951 and 25646 uses the Transmission Control Protocol. TCP is one of the main protocols in TCP/IP networks.
However please let us know the status of port 161 and 162 on the firewall.

Sanjeev Goyal


SNMP port are set to 161 and 162, check the port status on firewall

Re: Strange SNMP port using hponcfg

I don't understand the relationship between the firewall and my issue.

I would like to setup the SNMP pour using hponcfg.

But even if I choose 161 and 162, after loading my config the port setup in the ILO are different.

Why ?

Hello,

You have to involve your network engineer or network team here.

Re: Strange SNMP port using hponcfg

Please take a look at my file at the beginning of this topic.

Then check the result in the ILO web interface:

Re: Strange SNMP port using hponcfg

I am experiencing the same issue trying to configure my ilo5s. Did you ever figure this problem out?

To be clear, since it seems like the HPE person doesnt understand, the configuration file has settings to apply to the ilo5, setting the port values to specific values. But after applying the config file to ilo5, and it showing it applied successfully, reviewing the port value settings in the ilo5 show the port values were NOT changed to the values specified in the config file.

I could really use a fix for this behavior asap. Thanks
