SNMP community settings do not match across cluster members for Cisco Nexus

Vendor

Cisco

Description

Indeni will identify when two devices are part of a cluster and alert if the SNMP settings do not match.

Remediation Steps

Ensure all of the SNMP settings are configured correctly on all cluster members.

1. Ensure all of the SNMPv2 communities are configured correctly on all cluster members by using the "show snmp" NX-OS command.

2. Configure the same SNMPv2c communities by using the next command "snmp-server community name group { ro | rw }" across the peer Switches.

3. For more information please review the next CISCO configuration guide:

How does this work?

This script logs in to the Cisco Nexus switch using SSH and retrieves the current state of the SNMP protocol by using the "show snmp" command.

Why is this important?

This script logs in to the Cisco Nexus switch using SSH and retrieves the current state of the SNMP protocol by using the "show snmp" command.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

The administrator would have to manually log in to the device and check the SNMP communities configuration.
