How to change the SNMP community string

Hi,
I need to know a few things. I must tell you that I am very new to HPSIM and only known last week that I had to support the system... First, I need to change both SNMPs community strings (Read and Write). For the read community string, do I only need to changed it in the Global Protocol Settings page (and change it in the Security tab of the SNMP service on each agent)?

Also, I saw that the write community string is only use for intra-agent communication. That's probably why I don't see this settings anywhere in the HPSIM Manager web pages. How do I change it? If I change it on the security tabs of the SNMP Service, will HPSIM agent use the new one?
Thanks
