Setting the SNMP server description

Use the snmp-server sys-descr command to set the SNMP server description string. The default SNMP server description string is "Brocade-VDX-VCS <vcsid>." The number of characters allowed is from 4 through 255.

  1. Enter the configure command.
  2. Enter the snmp-server sys-descr string command.
    switch(config)# snmp-server sys-descr "Brocade-VDX Test Bed"
  3. Enter the no snmp-server sys-descr command to remove the location.

    The example changes the default location string to "Brocade-VDX Test Bed." You must enclose the text in double quotes if the text contains spaces.
