In this article we will focus on Huawei SNMP, How to Configure SNMP on Huawei devices. We will use the below simple topology and we will manage a router in Network Management System via SNMP.
Let’s start SNMP Configuration on the router. We will configure the router as SNMP Agent. Because it is the device that we would like to manage.
You can download this configuration on Huawei eNSP Labs Page.
In the first palce let’s configure our interface IP address.
[Huawei-Router] interface GigabitEthernet 1/1/1
[Huawei-Router-GigabitEthernet 1/1/1] ip address 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0
[Huawei-Router-GigabitEthernet 1/1/1] undo shutdown
To start Huawei SNMP Cofiguration, firstly we will enter the keyword “snmp-agent”. After that we will configure contact and location information. This information is required as a best practice. With this information, it is easy to determine contact people that is responsible NMS.
[Huawei-Router] snmp-agent sys-info contact Gokhan Tel : 00 90 123 123 1234
[Huawei-Router] snmp-agent sys-info location Istanbul, Turkey
After that, we will determine the version of our SNMP. By default SNMPv3 is enabled. Here, we will configure this router with SNMPv2c.So, firstly we will disable SNMPv3.Then, we will enable SNMPv2c.
