How to Enable SNMP on Brocade Fabric OS switches


Configuring SNMP on the Brocade Fabric OS switches requires entering the command line interface (CLI), accessed via Telnet, SSH, or serial console. The Fabric OS CLI enables an administrator to monitor and manage individual switches, ports, and entire fabrics from a standard workstation. Selected commands must be issued from a secure Telnet or SSH session.

Items that are between { } and in bold should be replaced with values specific to the environment being configured.

For Fabric OS, the command to enable SNMP polling is:

snmpconfig --set snmpv1 -c community {COMMUNITYSTRING}
