    Configuring the SNMP Server Contact Person and Location

    You can use the snmp-server contact and snmp-server location commands to configure the SNMP server’s contact person and the server’s location. Setting the server’s contact person and location provides helpful identifiers for the SNMP server. These identifiers are arbitrary and do not affect the server’s function, but they are useful to have. The contact is the person who manages the server. The location is the server’s physical location. Each of these parameters can be up to 64 characters.

    To configure the SNMP server’s contact person and the server’s location:

    • Execute the snmp-server contact and snmp-server location commands in Global Configuration mode.
      host1(config)#snmp-server contact Bob Smithhost1(config)#snmp-server location 3rdfloor

      Use the no version of the snmp-server contact and snmp-server location commands to clear the contact and location identifier from the SNMP configuration.
