Configuring SNMP access

Server and Cluster Administration Guide for Hitachi NAS Platform

Part Number
You can enable or disable SNMP access, specify the versions of SNMP for the server to use, and specify the hosts allowed to access the server using this protocol. For NAS modules of VSP Gx00 and Fx00 models and VSP N series models, the SNMP access configured with NAS Manager propagates to the block configuration. If the SNMP access settings are different for block and file, the SNMP access should be set with the maintenance utility rather than NAS Manager.
  1. Navigate to Home > Server Settings > SNMP Access Configuration.

    Allowed Hosts

    To permit requests from authorized hosts only, type the IP address of a host in this field, then click Add to include it in the list. If the system has been set up to work with a name server, you can type the name of the SNMP manager host rather than its address.

    Note: If access is restricted to specified hosts, add the SMU as an allowed host.

    To remove a host from the list, select the host you want to remove, then click Delete.

    Allowed Communities

    Type the name of a community (a password) that will provide authentication into the MIB, and then click Add to include it in the list. Community names are case-sensitive.

    Note: You should define at least one community entry.

    To remove a community from the list, select the host you want to remove, then click Delete.
