    Hello,

    I looked at this example

    set snmp name “snmp qfabric” description “qfabric0 switch”
    set snmp location “Lab 4 Row 11” contact “qfabric-admin@qfabric0”
    set snmp community public authorization read-only
    set snmp client-list list0 192.168.0.0/24
    set snmp community public client-list-name list0
    set snmp community public clients 192.170.0.0/24 restrict
    set snmp trap-group “qf-traps” destination-port 155 targets 192.168.0.100
     
    the company communit for snmp is "pizza"
    No idea who the snmp line should read.
    Thanks.

    Hi jimbo55,

     

    If the SNMP community in your company is "pizza", then please replace the word "public" in this config to "pizza".  Config should look like:

     

     

    set snmp name “snmp qfabric” description “qfabric0 switch”
    set snmp location “Lab 4 Row 11” contact “qfabric-admin@qfabric0”
    set snmp community pizza authorization read-only
    set snmp client-list list0 192.168.0.0/24
    set snmp community pizza client-list-name list0
    set snmp community pizza clients 192.170.0.0/24 restrict
    set snmp trap-group “qf-traps” destination-port 155 targets 192.168.0.100

     

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,
    -r.

    Hi jimbo55,

     

    The client-list is just to indicate a group of clients that can use the same community.  It's an optional field and instead you can just define individual clients.  

     

    So either do:

     

    set snmp name "snmp qfabric" description "qfabric0 switch"
    set snmp location "Lab 4 Row 11" contact "qfabric-admin@qfabric0"
    set snmp community pizza authorization read-only
    set snmp client-list list0 192.168.0.0/24
    set snmp community pizza client-list-name list0
    set snmp community pizza clients 192.170.0.0/24 restrict
    set snmp trap-group "qf-traps" destination-port 155 targets 192.168.0.100

     

    or

    set snmp name "snmp qfabric" description "qfabric0 switch"
    set snmp location "Lab 4 Row 11" contact "qfabric-admin@qfabric0"
    set snmp community pizza authorization read-only
    set snmp community pizza clients 192.170.0.0/24 restrict
    set snmp trap-group "qf-traps" destination-port 155 targets 192.168.0.100

     

    Hope this helps.
