Associating Security Names with a Community (SRC CLI)

For SNMPv1 or SNMPv2c packets, you must assign security names to groups at the [edit snmp v3 vacm security-to-group] hierarchy level and you must associate a security name with an SNMP community.

Use the following configuration statements to configure SNMPv1 or SNMPv2c communities for the VACM:

snmp v3 snmp-community community-index { community-name community-name;security-name security-name;address address; }

To configure the community:

  1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that configures the community.
    [edit]user@host# edit snmp v3 snmp-community community-index

    Use a unique index that identifies an SNMP community.

  2. (Optional) Specify the community string for the SNMPv1 or SNMPv2c community.
    [edit snmp v3 snmp-community community-index] user@host# set community-name community-name

    If a community name is not specified, the community index is used.

  3. Specify the VACM security name to associate with the community string.
    [edit snmp v3 snmp-community community-index] user@host# set security-name security-name
  4. (Optional) Specify the IP address or subnet of the SNMP clients that are authorized to use this community.
    [edit snmp v3 snmp-community community-index] user@host# set address address

    If an address is not specified, all clients are authorized to use the community.

  5. (Optional) Verify your configuration.
    [edit snmp v3 snmp-community community-index] user@host# show
