SNMP

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is an Internet-standard protocol for managing devices on IP networks. One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords allows you to configure SNMP subscriptions for sending SNMP traps to your SNMP console when certain events occur.

Go to SNMP:

  • web client: Navigate to  Settings | External Integration | SNMP.
  • desktop client: Navigate to Administrative Tools | Settings | External Integration | SNMP.

The SNMP pane displays the following about the SNMP subscribers defined.

Table 162: SNMP: Properties
Property Description
Network Address The IP address or FQDN of the primary SNMP network server
Port The UDP port number for SNMP traps
Version The SNMP version being used
Community The SNMP community string being used by the SNMP subscriber
Description The description of the SNMP subscriber
# of Events The number of events selected to be sent to the SNMP console

Use these toolbar buttons to manage the SNMP subscriptions.

Table 163: SNMP: Toolbar
Option Description
Add Add a new SNMP subscription. For more information, see Configuring SNMP subscriptions.

Edit Modify the selected SNMP subscription.
Copy Clone the selected SNMP subscription.
Refresh Update the list of SNMP subscriptions.

Configuring SNMP subscriptions

It is the responsibility of the Appliance Administrator to configure Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to send SNMP traps to your SNMP console when certain events occur.

You can create a test to verify the SNMP configuration. For more information, see Verifying SNMP configuration.

To download Safeguard for Privileged Passwords MIB-module definitions from your appliance, enter the following URL into your web browser; no authentication is required:

To configure SNMP subscriptions

  1. Go to SNMP:
    • web client: Navigate to  Settings | External Integration | SNMP.
    • desktop client: Navigate to Administrative Tools | Settings | External Integration | SNMP.
  2. Click Add to open the SNMP subscription configuration dialog.
  3. Provide the following information:
    • Network Address: Enter the IP address or FQDN of the primary SNMP network server. Limit: 255 characters
    • UDP Port: Enter the UDP port number for SNMP traps. Default: 162
    • Description: Enter the description of the SNMP subscriber. Limit: 255 characters
    • Events: Browse to select one or more SNMP event types. Use the Clear icon to remove an individual event from this list or right-click and select Remove All to clear all events from the list. The SNMP pane displays the number of events that you select, not the names of the events.
    • Version: Choose the SNMP version: Version 1 or Version 2. Default: Version 2.
    • Community: Enter the SNMP community string, such as public. The SNMP community string is like a user ID, password that allows access to a device's statistics, such as a router. A PRTG Network Monitor sends the community string along with all SNMP requests. If the community string is correct, the device responds with the requested information. If the community string is incorrect, the device simply discards the request and does not respond.
  4. Click OK.

Verifying SNMP configuration

Use the Send Test Event link located under the SNMP table to send a test event to verify the SNMP configurations.

To validate your setup

  1. Go to SNMP:
    • web client: Navigate to  Settings | External Integration | SNMP.
    • desktop client: Navigate to Administrative Tools | Settings | External Integration | SNMP.
  2. When configuring your SNMP subscription, on the SNMP dialog, add the test event to your event subscription. For more information, see Configuring SNMP subscriptions.
  3. On the SNMP settings pane:
    1. Select the SNMP configuration from the table.
    2. Click Send Test Event. Safeguard for Privileged Passwords sends a test event notification to your SNMP console.
