Enabling SNMP Access over Routing Instances (NSM Procedure)

You can enable SNMP managers in routing instances other than the default routing instance to access SNMP information. You can use the SNMP routing instance access feature to create access lists to allow or deny SNMP clients in routing instances access to SNMP information. Specify the routing instance name to allow the SNMP client in a routing instance to access SNMP information. To deny the SNMP client in a routing instance access to SNMP information, restrict the routing instance name in the access list. If access rights are not configured, JUNOS Software does not allow SNMP managers from routing instances other than the default routing instance to access SNMP information.

To configure access lists for SNMP access over routing instances in NSM:

  1. In the navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
  2. In the Devices list, double-click the device to select it.
  3. Click the Configuration tab.
  4. In the configuration tree, expand SNMP.
  5. Select Routing Instance Access.
  6. Select the Enable Feature check box.
  7. Enter the parameters as specified in Table 78.
  8. Click one:
    • OK—To save the changes.
    • Cancel—To cancel the modifications.
    • Apply—To apply the SNMP settings.

Note: After you make changes to a device configuration, you must push that updated device configuration to the physical security device for those changes to take effect. You can update multiple devices at one time. See the Updating Devices section in the Network and Security Manager Administration Guide for more information.
