SNMP enablement setting does 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. Execute the "show snmp" NX-OS command to check the SNMP service status to the pair of the Nexus cluster nodes

2. Use the "show run snmp" NX-OS command to review the configuration settings on both peer switches

3. Validate that the SNMP config is common on both peer switches

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 if SNMP is enabled.
