    Configuring an Authorized SNMP Server Community

    You can use the snmp-server community command to configure an authorized SNMP community for access to the SNMP MIBs and to associate SNMPv1/v2c communities with SNMP MIB views. The community name serves as a password and permits access to an SNMP server. The name can be up to 31 characters, and it must be enclosed in quotation marks. The maximum number of communities in each virtual router is 32. By default, an SNMP community permits only read-only access. The view name allows configuration with available dynamic views.

    To configure an authorized SNMP community and associate SNMPv1/v2c communities with SNMPv3 views:

    • Execute the snmp-server community command in Global Configuration mode.
      host1(config)#snmp-server community “ boston” view view1 rw

      Use the no version to delete a community from the SNMP community table.
