prerequisite/steps/configuration to add node to NNMi 9.20 (on device side from networking team)

Hi,

We have few devices which are not discovered in NNMi 9.20 , can anyone guide me what configuration/steps we need to do on device so that we can add device to NNMi.

I am aware about how to add it to NNM but not sure about the steps from networking side.

I am not able to run snmpwalk from NNMi server.

 

Regards,

Hello,

 

in order to do more than just a ping, you have to enable SNMP on the devices. The read community is needed and it should not be "public". Perhaps you want or you have to add a manager entry, which allows only the NNMi server ip address to communicate with the device via SNMP.

As the commands are different for each vendor I can share some Cisco IOS stuff, which might be helpful:

access-list 55 permit host <ip of the NNMi server>

access-list 55 deny any

snmp-server community myspecialreadcom RO 55

snmp-server contact <contact information>

snmp-server location <location information - can be used for Node Group filtering>

snmp-server enable traps

no snmp-server enable traps snmp authentication

snmp-server host <ip of the NNMi server> public

! public for sending SNMP trap is ok!

 

HTH and kind regards
