Cisco CSPC Smart Collector question

Hi

 

Our customer is coming up against an issue upong configuration of a Cisco Smart Collector, CSPC. Can anyone help?

 

– I seem to have hit a brick wall with the setup. The documentation I have seen says to enable some protocols, which I have done – now I have been getting asked by the networks team here about a read-only connection string for SNMP. I have enabled SNMP and configured a user account – not sure exactly what they mean by connection string, or where I would find it on the UCS. So yes, would appreciate any help you could give me.

 

 

Can you help?

 

Regards

Nick

Re: Cisco CSPC Smart Collector question

Dont they just mean the snmp v1/2 community string? Thats how it sounds to me.

 

The guide (from memory) states that it needs SNMP and Telnet/SSH, however ideally should be SNMPv3 and SSH and locked down to permitted management hosts plus the CSP-C. You also need to ensure this communication is permitted through any firewalls.

 

I dont knwo where it is specifically on the UCS sorry but a bit of digging around you should find SNMP.

Hi Nick,

 

Here is for your ref. Please check section 'enabling SNMP' on UCS

 

FOR GUI:

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/unified_computing/ucs/sw/gui/config/guide/2-0/b_UCSM_GUI_Configuration_Guide_2_0/b_UCSM_GUI_Configuration_Guide_2_0_chapter_0110.html#topic_EBD2F0ECC71441B59BA6A8E155D7C470

 

Via CLI:

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/unified_computing/ucs/sw/cli/config/guide/1-3-1/b_CLI_Config_Guide_1_3_1/CLI_Config_Guide_1_3_1_chapter6.html#task_1526914553381791499

 

SNMP community read-only string needs to be configured on UCS and related SNMP credential profile has to be created on CSPC for initial discovery.

 

For CPSC: Please check 'credential management section'

https://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en/us/support/docs/cloud-systems-management/common-services-platform-collector-cspc/CSPC-User-Guide.pdf

 

I hope this helps.

 

Thanks,
Supriya
