Update SNMP RO String

    Overview


    Currently NetBrain could only add devices with the same telnet/SSH username to the device group. This guide instructs the steps to locate the devices that have SNMP RO string changed and update them accordingly. Out-dated SNMP RO could prevent NetBrain from accessing network devices via SNMP, which results inaccurate network topology, path failures, SNMP based Qapp failure, etc. 


    Procedure


    Utilizing ‘Tune Live Access’ to get the list of the devices with the wanted SNMP string, then import the list to the device group. So that SNMP string can be changed against the device group all at once. 


    1.    Find the devices that require SNMP string updates


    a.    Login to the NetBrain End User Interface with an account that has Domain Management privileges
    b.    Navigate to NetBrain Domain Management interface and Click on Operations -> Advanced Tool -> Tune Live Access
    c.    Click on ‘Start Tuning’ against all the devices and export the result.

    d.    Filter the exported report to find your devices that are about to make SNMP string update, then get the device name list from the 1st column.

     

    2.    Create a device group that includes the device found previous step. 


    a.    Copy over the device name from the above exported report to the device group template attached. 

    b.    Navigate to NetBrain Desktop -> Menu -> Device Group. 
     
    c.    Create the device group using the device group template.

     

    3.    Update SNMP string 


    a.    Login to the NetBrain End User Interface with an account that has Domain Management privileges
    b.    Navigate to NetBrain Domain Management interface and Click on Operations -> Discover Setting -> Network Settings
     
    c.    Right-click on the credentials that need to be updated from Telent/SSH login or Privilege Login tab and click ‘Edit’. 
      
    d.    Navigate to Operations -> Advanced Tool ->Tune Live Access 
      
    e.    Select the device group created from step 2, then click ‘Start Tuning’.
     

     

    4.    Verify the SNMP update 


    a.    Once Tuning is completed, all the devices in the device group should receive the network credential update. 
    b.    The updated SNMP RO string is expected under ‘SNMP RO’ column.
