how to disable SNMPv2c on iDRAC7 and the impact of doing so

Hi all,


A vulnerability scan listed SNMPv2c and we've been asked to disable it.


How can we do so and what, if any, impact would this have if we're not monitoring the DRACs via SNMP.

Thanks!

You can either disable SNMP or enable only SNMP v3 on iDRAC. You can change this setting from below page of iDRAC GUI

Overview -> iDRAC Settings -> Network -> Services

Refer SNMP Agent section for SNMP related changes

If you are not doing any monitoring of iDRAC using SNMP, changing SNMP setting will not impact your iDRAC.

Thanks
