Did you have iSM (iDRAC Service Module) installed on the server with " SnmpGet via Host OS" feature enabled. If yes can you uninstall iSM or disable " SnmpGet via Host OS" feature and check the behavior

Found the service which restore the string:

AgentCommunity=ismuser

it is the dcismeng.service service itself.

But I'm still checking how, because it looks like restore the default but I do not know how.
