The following sections discuss configuring the Simple Network Management Protocol on Brocade devices. This includes configuring SNMP community strings, SNMP server hosts, SNMP server contexts, password encryption for SNMPv3 users, and displaying SNMP configurations.
Note the following:
- After an upgrade to Network OS6.0.0 or later, the default SNMP configuration from previous releases is removed only if the copy default-config startup-config command is issued before the upgrade. Otherwise, the running configuration is not changed.
- There is no change in the behavior of the upgrade from the running configuration to the startup configuration.
- Following a netinstall to Network OS6.0.0 or later, or a reboot when the default configuration is copied to the startup configuration, the following SNMP configuration appears, with previous default configurations removed:
device#show running-config snmp-server snmp-server contact "Field Support." snmp-server location "End User Premise." snmp-server sys-descr "Brocade VDX Switch." snmp-server enable trap
