Re: how to change snmp server IP in aci

Configuring SNMP in APIC

 

Step 1

In the menu bar, click Fabric.

Step 2

In the submenu bar, click Fabric Policies.

Step 3

In the Navigation pane, expand Pod Policies.

Step 4

Under Pod Policies, expand Policies.

Step 5

Right-click SNMP and choose Create SNMP Policy.

As an alternative to creating a new SNMP policy, you can edit the default policy fields in the same manner as described in the following steps.

Step 6

In the SNMP policy dialog box, perform the following actions:

  1. In the Name field, enter an SNMP policy name.

  2. In the Admin State field, select Enabled.

  3. (Optional) In the SNMP v3 Users table, click the + icon, enter a Name, enter the user's authentication data, and click Update.

    This step is needed only if SNMPv3 access is required.

  4. In the Community Policies table, click the + icon, enter a Name (include only alphanumeric characters and do not include the @ symbol) and click Update.

  5. In the Trap Forward Servers table, click the + icon, enter the IP Address of the external server and click Update.

Step 7

To configure allowed SNMP management stations, perform the following actions in the SNMP policy dialog box:

  1. In the Client Group Policies table, click the + icon to open the Create SNMP Client Group Profile dialog box.

  2. In the Name field, enter an SNMP client group profile name.

  3. From the Associated Management EPG drop-down list, choose the management EPG.

  4. In the Client Entries table, click the + icon.

  5. Enter a client's name in the Name field, enter the client's IP address in the Address field, and click Update.

    Note 

    When an SNMP management station connects with APIC using SNMPv3, APIC does not enforce the client IP address specified in the SNMP client group profile. For SNMPv3, the management station must exist in the Client Entries list, but the IP address need not match, as the SNMPv3 credentials alone are sufficient for access.

Step 8

Click OK.

Step 9

Click Submit.

Step 10

Under Pod Policies, expand Policy Groups and choose a policy group or right-click Policy Groups and choose Create POD Policy Group.

You can create a new pod policy group or you can use an existing group. The pod policy group can contain other pod policies in addition to the SNMP policy.

Step 11

In the pod policy group dialog box, perform the following actions:

  1. In the Name field, enter a pod policy group name.

  2. From the SNMP Policy drop-down list, choose the SNMP policy that you configured and click Submit.

Step 12

Under Pod Policies, expand Profiles and click default.

Step 13

In the Work pane, from the Fabric Policy Group drop-down list, choose the pod policy group that you created.

Step 14

Click Submit.

Step 15

Click OK.
