Passphrases SNMPv3 on iDRAC8

Jump to solution

Hello,

 

I would like to monitor my PowerEdge servers via SNMPv3 with a secured authentication and encryption.

But I didn't find where I can configure the SHA and AES passphrases on the iDRAC web UI.

I can activate both options on the user parameters, but I don't know where to configure the passphrases.

I tried to make some SNMPv3 request without theses options, it works well, but the data transits in clear text.

 Model : PowerEdge T330

iDRAC version 2.52.52.52

Is there anyone that can help me on this matter?

 

Thanks very much in advance !

The settings are under iDRAC settings >Network, then the services sub tab.1.PNG

 

 

However, in order to set passphrases that is done under User Authentication.

Under User Authentication you will select your user, and as you see there is an SNMPv3 column and it's disabled.

Then on the user profile page select Configure User and then click next.

 There you will locate the SNMPv3 Enable check box and your passphrase type setting.

The passphrase is the password configured for the user.

Hope this helps.

"The passphrase is the password configured for the user."

 

Thank you very much ! This is exactly the information I was looking for ! This is not really explicit in the documentation.

I'll close the thread.
