Can someone point me in the right direction on this?
I need set SNMP settings on about 3000+ servers with multiple community names and remove PUBLIC.
How can this be accomplished via a group policy? I have set the policy and PUBLIC seems to appear in the Community name along with the the 2 trap desitinations I have configured. In the SNMP security piece I do see the 2 communities I defined.
My process was this:
I set the snmp settings like I wanted on the server I was setting the policy on. I exported the registry keys for the configuration into the policy and it does apply. I then went into the Network/SNMP settings and set the community names there. But the community
name PUBLIC seems to always appear.
I read in other posts that a custom ADM template may have to be made so it will set this correctly? Has someone successfully done this?
1.If you configure the SNMP GPO (or Policies registry), the communities in policy only works for communication though the public community display on local computer.
SNMP GPO: Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Template\Network\SNMP\Communities Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Template\Network\SNMP\Permitted Managers Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Template\Network\SNMP\Trap for public community
