Re: Configuring SIM 7.1 SNMP

You could use PUBLIC/PRIVATE but I wouldn't as they are the least secure of all as they are always defaults. You must have at least a read community string setup on the target servers SNMP agents and at least one write community on the agents if you want to be able to set performance threshold setting sin the SMH. SIM only needs to know about the read community though :)
